The Rush

You’re an the open wound I want to keep open, I’m not allowing a skin to heal over it. It’s like I need to keep it open, it hurts like hell to leave it alone, more so than letting the scab grow over it. I know you say that we broke up at Christmas but … Read moreThe Rush

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.

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. With the help of a semi-traumatic event last November (and I’m not certain I’m dramatizing that either), I was pushed into advocating for mental health to be … Read moreStepping Stones in Self-Growth

The Power of Shame Resilience: Brené Brown’s on Shame, Connection, and Empathy

It’s been a couple of months since my therapist introduced me to Brené Brown. Her book The Gifts of Imperfection changed my life; it helped me understand how to sit with my vulnerability and discover my authentic self. After finishing that book, I scoured bookstores and online websites for more of Brown’s work. I found her book I … Read moreThe Power of Shame Resilience: Brené Brown’s on Shame, Connection, and Empathy

Depression: You Don’t Have to Walk Alone

Depression is drowning in an ocean of despair while another part of you is cutting away your lifeline that would keep you from drowning. Can you imagine how frightening that could be? Imagine fighting that fight every day. Depression can come and go for me. I have good days, bad days, and really, really bad … Read moreDepression: You Don’t Have to Walk Alone

Beauty, Everlasting.

This post was inspired by a friend of mine. She recently wrote an entry about detoxing, a proper healthy way, after getting a hangover with a few pictures of herself detoxing at the end. In one of the pictures she’s relaxing in a sauna. The way the picture was taken, her demeanor everything about it immediately … Read moreBeauty, Everlasting.
