Here are some of my favorite quotes from the book:
- I didn't believe in asking for acceptance or permission to be myself. I took what I felt I deserved.
- If I didn't define myself for myself I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive. (Audre Lorde)
- My passage was an evolution from me to closer-to-me-ness. It's a journey of self-revelation.
- You are a composite of all the things you believe and all the places you think you can go. Your past does not define you. You can step out of your history and create a new day for yourself. Even if the entire culture is saying, "You can't." Even if every possible bad thing that can happen to you does. You can keep going forward. (Oprah Winfrey)
