As a young lady growing up in the 21st century and bombarded with so many different messages, Scott Fried did a lot of clearing up for me. Since his lecture, I have experienced an all too foreign and phenomenal feeling of self acceptance and love. I have been ranting and raving about how much I appreciate life and how much I appreciate myself. Scott Fried has been a crucial role in this process. I feel as though he opened my eyes to some of life’s most important features and helped to filter out the less important ones. I feel like I have been granted the gift of learning how to love yourself which directly effects my actions and the quality of my life. I am not sure if this was his intended purpose but I wanted to share what I was able to take from his message and admirable vulnerability.
