Quotes from the show:
- “I had a feeling of, like, I need to stick it out here because there needs to be a beacon of light. But then I got to the spot where I was like, actually no, that doesn’t have to be my job, and I’ve done it enough and my kids need to be in a spot now where they don’t feel different all the time.” –Nick North Support is Sexy Ep. #779
- On being straight passing: “There is a cost to it. There’s a cost to every time someone says something terrible to you, even if they didn’t mean it to be terrible. Even if their intention wasn’t to hurt you. It still hurts.” –Nick North Support is Sexy Ep. #779
- On the uncomfortable asking: “That can feel really scary. That could be a huge fight. That could potentially open up big cracks in the foundation that you were just really hoping you wouldn’t have to look at.” –Katherine North Support is Sexy Ep. #779
- “If my “why” has good intentions… then I can change it from it being about me to it being about giving back… If I can go back to the why I need that support, it usually has a really good intention behind it that will put good things into the world… If I have to trick myself to take care of myself that way, I’m for it.” –Nick North Support is Sexy Ep. #779
