Trevor McKendrick - Happy new year

Happy New Year!!

I hope you & yours had an amazing holiday, and a literally unforgettable 2022.

“if you constantly chase your edge of cringe you are probably getting closer to truth and authenticity because that is precisely what cringes people out”

“conquering the fear of being cringe is fully a rite of passage to living life on your own terms”

“this comes back to self image. by solving for positive self image (high intrinsic opinion of yourself), you can do anything without worrying about being cringe. we cringe when we think about ourselves in the context of external approval”
