Jennings sees in Teresa “ A warmth, magnanimity and joy,” which she feels ennobled her, besides making her “more human, more compassionate.” Above all, she admires the devotional fervor of Teresa in conveying the mystical experiences in the simplest narrative forms. The transformation that Teresa went through from her worldly experiences to mysticism was instinctively felt and understood by Jennings. But to work out these instincts into expressions needed imagination. It is this faculty that Jennings recognized in Teresa as the most distinguishing attribute.

The documentary The Silent Hunger: Anorexia and Bulimia was full of resonating quotes including one by a recovering bulimic named Justine: “Once I found that there was this comfort for myself to relieve my pain… fears, insecurities-- I didn 't want to let go of that”. After a few other individuals explain their same feelings towards bulimia helping them expel emotions, the documentary goes into a section that highlights the similarity between all of the individuals—the concept of control.
