Quotes from the show:
- On her brother Justin: “He kept telling me, I just want to make a difference in this world. And he is making a difference now. I feel him guiding me, and I feel like he’s touched so many people after his death because every single person that receives one of our boxes, it was inspired by him.” –Julia Broglie Support is Sexy Ep. #784
- “We need to be open about this [how Justin died] because we don’t want any other family to go through what we’re going through right now… and if us talking about it saves a life or brings awareness or fights the stigma, then we’re going to shout it from the rooftops.” –Julia Broglie Support is Sexy Ep. #784
- “If you’re going to a therapist once or twice a week, what are you doing in the in-between? What are you doing every single day to support your mental health or even just remind yourself, hey I should check in with myself, what is one thing I can do for myself?” –Julia Broglie Support is Sexy Ep. #784
- “2020 was that year that a lot of us realized that even if you’re not directly involved in a situation that you might think would cause grief, just even being on the outside or witnessing it on television or just knowing what’s going on in the world or seeing people who are losing a family, for example, can cause grief.” –Elayne Fluker Support is Sexy Ep. #784
- “You are your company’s greatest asset. And when you’re not treating yourself as your company’s greatest asset, then your company’s going to suffer.” –Julia Broglie Support is Sexy Ep. #784
