In the last eight to twelve weeks, I’ve been thinking a lot about things. When I was younger, I used to think tears were a sign of weakness. I believed if I couldn’t keep my emotions in check then I would be considered weak and fragile. As I got older, I gave myself permission … More You’re NOT Weak, You’re actually Strong!
Lately I’ve been thinking about pressure, and how I handle it. I used to always seem to draw a blank when time was ticking, but once it came down to the wire something would click, and I always made my deadline. The last few years my anxiety has intensified, and that last minute click … More Caving under pressure? Self-sabotage? Mental Health Issues? (Which one is it?)
In the past few years, I’ve been looking at the world through a different lens. As I probably mentioned in previous posts before, the world has become a little grayer.

Today, I want to talk about something that I’ve been having a really hard time with these days. If you’ve followed my posts from over the years, then you know how much I’ve been through these past years. Some things are self-inflicted I guess you could say, but most things I didn’t have control … More Bad Habits or Just Depression? (My Current Focus)
