Hello! For those of you who aren’t aware, today is National Coming Out Day. I want to take some time out of my rough (even though it hasn’t been that bad of a day) day to express my thoughts on today. Today can mean a lot to different people. I’m sure for some it’s irrelevant…

Today I want to talk about something important, but is often discussed in a negative way. It’s something people who do not experience it often don’t understand.

Not trusting people, but always being lonely leads some, like me, to constantly seek out validation from others. There is a need to be…

I want to share a story with you that both frustrated me and made me want to see change happen. I spoke in an earlier blog post about self-advocacy. It’s important, and people should do it more often. However, there are times where you don’t think you should have to advocate for yourself because the…
