Having a Real Love

I keep seeing these articles about having “almost love”. An “almost relationship”. Something that either wasn’t felt by both people in the relationship or a relationship that wasn’t allowed to develop fully in some way. That’s what I gather from these phrases.

Stepping Stones in Self-Growth

Since November of last year I have really began to grasp the severity and importance of mental health problems. I slowly became more comfortable discussing the stigmatized subject.

Peace is earned, not given.

Small emotional victories remind me I’m moving my heart in the right direction towards peace. Most of my recent medical and hospital encounters have been a bit difficult to deal with to a certain extent. But after looking inward, I realized a sizable portion of my issues were based in my fear. I had gotten my feelings hurt so many times and decided to go … Read morePeace is earned, not given.
