Wisdom is an equal measure of experience plus reflection.
— Aristotle
 "When you think about it, accepting something simply because it is presented as right or normal makes zero sense. Question mainstream medicine, mainstream media, mainstream nutrition, mainstream religion, etc. etc. Do your own research. Find your own beliefs. Form your own thoughts. Use your own brain."  - Kacie Main

 "I can't help but think maybe my emotional walls are actually the cause of the pain in my life, not the result of it... My walls don't just keep others from getting in, they're keeping me from getting out."  - Kacie Main,  I Gave Up Men for Lent

The path isn’t a straight line; it’s a spiral.
You continually come back to things you
thought you understood and see deeper truths

 "I guess you can’t ever really judge the way someone else lives their life, or even the decisions they make. Because you don’t know where they have been or where they are going and why. You don’t know the deeper reason (or purpose) driving it all. And maybe they don’t yet either. Maybe they’re just trying to figure it all out. Like I am."  - Kacie Main,  I Gave Up Men for Lent

  "It’s not that I was always meant to be this person from day one; it’s that I was always meant to grow into this person. My path… as winding and rough as it has been at times… still led me here."    - Kacie Main,  I Gave Up Men for Lent

  "I don’t think we can ever really figure out why we’ve done the things we’ve done, or for that matter, why we are the way we are... All we can do is  try  to understand how significant events in our life might have changed us from that point on. And I think just going through that process is wherein lies the value, the therapy, the peace. Because while you will never arrive at a factual answer, along the path searching for it, you’ll get to know yourself a lot better."    - Kacie Main,  I Gave Up Men for Lent
