  1. “The journey into self-love and self-acceptance must begin with self-examination. … until you take the journey of self-reflection, it is almost impossible to grow or learn in life.” Iyanla Vanzant
  2. “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” Carl R. Rogers
  3. “People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.” I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” Carl R. Rogers, A Way of Being
  4. “What I am is good enough if I would only be it openly.” Carl R. Rogers
  5. “I’m not perfect… But I’m enough.” Carl R. Rogers
  6. “The degree to which I can create relationships, which facilitate the growth of others as separate persons, is a measure of the growth I have achieved in myself.” Carl R. Rogers, On Becoming a Person: A Therapist’s View of Psychotherapy
  7. “I believe it will have become evident why, for me, adjectives such as happy, contented, blissful, enjoyable, do not seem quite appropriate to any general description of this process I have called the good life, even though the person in this process would experience each one of these at the appropriate times. But adjectives which seem more generally fitting are adjectives such as enriching, exciting, rewarding, challenging, meaningful. This process of the good life is not, I am convinced, a life for the faint-fainthearted. It involves the stretching and growing of becoming more and more of one’s potentialities. It involves the courage to be. It means launching oneself fully into the stream of life. Yet the deeply exciting thing about human beings is that when the individual is inwardly free, he chooses as the good life this process of becoming.” Carl R. Rogers, On Becoming a Person: A Therapist’s View of Psychotherapy
