Shame

Yesterday I posted this blurb on Instagram. And now I want to expand on it even further. You see, shame is something that we each deal with differently. We might see some of our shame journey in other people, but it is still different. No matter how different our shame is, we are not in this alone. You are not suffering through shame’s grasp … Read More Shame

Mind Wandering

If I am doing something with my hands and there isn’t a book I’m listening to or a TV show that I’m watching, I’m most likely lost in my mind, off somewhere in another time. Even if music is on. I have a wandering mind. Most of the time, I’m trying to prepare myself for some future conflict that I bet I’ll have to … Read More Mind Wandering

Inconvenience

What does inconvenience mean to you? Is it about things? Or time? Or ….. you? Whaaaattt did she just say? Have you ever felt like you are an inconvenience? No? It’s just me? Okay… Well, I want to talk to you about it anyway. A lot of women feel like they are an inconvenience for just about everything. Sometimes we can go days or … Read More Inconvenience

Well, that happened…

Once again, it’s been a couple months. I definitely haven’t been consistent at sharing life I had wanted to. I could sit here and beat myself up, telling you how awful I feel, how awful of a person I am because there is no way that I should expect you to keep following me. I could. But I’m not. Life happens. I started questioning … Read More Well, that happened…

She asked the simple question “Have you stopped lately to be proud of what you’ve accomplished lately? Or ever?“ No. No I … Read More Day 4: Proud

Day 2: Perfectionism and Love

Today my focus is on my need for perfectionism and my fear of not being loved. These two thoughts are so tightly wrapped up for me that it feels like a never ending cycle of trying to be perfect so others can love me. In my growth journey, I’m learning from multiple outlets. Today’s outlet included two different books that actually prompted my focus … Read More Day 2: Perfectionism and Love

Day 1: Me

I haven’t been feeling myself for a while. I feel as though I’ve completely regressed in all the work that I did to improve my mental health. Looking back, I think this happened over the period of more than a year with many different events triggering further setback. I wouldn’t say I’m depressed, but I would say my stress and anxiety are at an … Read More Day 1: Me

I am…

… who I am and that is who I’ll be. A few years ago I bought Staying Strong by Demi Lovato and her first entry was about finding your own motto. Ever since the day I first read that, I established and clung to the motto “I am who I am and that is who I’ll be.” I haven’t always lived by that thought, … Read More I am…

Talking to myself…

Have you ever considered how often you talk to yourself? I do it ALL the time. Seriously! There are times that I am thinking about something and I’m in a public bathroom and find myself audibly thinking about it. Yup, random people just caught me talking to myself. Embarrassing right? For me, not as much as you would think. I mean, I probably won’t … Read More Talking to myself…
