“Humans aren’t laundry! Stop trying to compartmentalize and sort yourself out. Mess does not always mean dirty. Sometimes it just means complicated, and complicated can be beautiful! Ask yourself, ‘how might I approach life differently if I had compassion for my beautiful mess?’” – Sonya Renee Taylor
