Special

I just want to feel special. Ever had that feeling? No? Are you sure? I thought I was above that kind of need. I didn’t want to be a person who needed to feel special. I saw those people as being self-centered. Until I started doing self-care and personal growth. Then I realized that it is okay to want to feel special. In fact, … Read More Special

Your Thoughts Will Run or Ruin Your Life

  I have lived within my thoughts all of my life. My thoughts ran and at some points, ruined my life.

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.

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…
