Dr. Robin challenges each of us to become our own candle that burns light for ourselves. When your own inner light is strong, Dr. Robin says that no one person or event can have the power to take your light away. "No one should have the power to put [you] in darkness, no one should have the ability to wipe out you being your own bright candle and being light for yourself," she says.
When you become your own candle and burn light for yourself, Dr. Robin says you can endure anything that comes your way. "You can walk into a room and you light your own path, and you light the way and you create the light that you need in your home and at parties and in your own despair," she says. "You have found a way to be your own light."
