I’m proud to be the White Sheep in a dysfunctional (bio) family

Last week, I had an interesting phone call. It was from a person that was pretending to care about me and my healing journey. It was odd but expected. I didn’t entertain his judgements. As a matter of fact, it was easy to deflect and even easier to understand knowing that this was the firstContinue reading “I’m proud to be the White Sheep in a dysfunctional (bio) family”

Poem: What if I told you…

What if I told you that everything in your heart Was going to be pulled completely apart? Every smile that is shared Is another ‘hit’ to be bared You decided to dim your light Because you were tired of the fight Every way you turn Something started to burn You protect your friendships with somethingContinue reading “Poem: What if I told you…”

From ROCK to RAGING RIVER and back to ROCK

The last few weeks have been rather interesting. With a shift in the Universe and also a shift within. Lots of crazy things have been happening. It’s actually kind of funny to be honest… I pride myself on having outstanding crisis management skills. As long as others are having moments of complete duress, I’m ableContinue reading “From ROCK to RAGING RIVER and back to ROCK”

The Magical Penis

Before you get excited, I’m going to start by saying this concept is not what you think. As someone that has kept my family dysfunction, my family abuse, my brokenness, VERY private, I have learned a few things about sharing my pain. I have been joking about this concept for a few days so thoughtContinue reading “The Magical Penis”

Balance. Grooming. Awareness. Direct Messages. Self-love.

Day 20. Freewriting. I messed up. I had a few conversations before doing my freewriting. I dunno what compelled me to side-step. So the below is still relevant to share for the larger goal of exposing [my] mental wellness, but it is not pure. It’s NOT my first waking thoughts. I’ll share my current thoughtsContinue reading “Balance. Grooming. Awareness. Direct Messages. Self-love.”

Perfectly flawed. Slightly intolerant. Hopelessly optimistic.

I interrupt my regular rambles for an intentional (and slightly thought out) post. I’m writing mid day. I’ve just had a day of exercising some brain muscles that were a bit dusty. Communications strategy for a Foundation. Took a bit longer than previous projects but still faster than I expected! (Humble bragging is part ofContinue reading “Perfectly flawed. Slightly intolerant. Hopelessly optimistic.”

Please stop breaking me. Love, Heart

Day 1. Freewriting. Processing hurt: Crack open your heart to let in the light… They say that everything happens for a reason. Sometimes things are meant to build you up and other times, things happen to remind you of your inner strength. I have spent YEARS trying to conceal the heartbreaking parts of my life.Continue reading “Please stop breaking me. Love, Heart”

Hoovering? Love Bombing? … who knows?! It’s just another manipulation.

When I date someone, I start a shoebox for relationship keepsakes. When the relationship ends, the box turns into a bag. The bag gets chucked into my closet. I shared this quirk with some friends and they wanted to open the bags… They thought it was clever and sentimental but odd. Looking back, I’ve datedContinue reading “Hoovering? Love Bombing? … who knows?! It’s just another manipulation.”
