Mental Health and Medications

I’ve been gone for a while but I’ll hopefully come back soon. Some stuff happened in my everyday life that’s kept me super busy and I haven’t been blogging like I should. But this is something that needed to be put down. For the last 2.5-3 months, I’ve been on new medications. I had resisted […]

Self Care After Critique Sessions

If you’re at all serious about writing, you’re going to need a critique session at some point. Those sessions are what helps you pick out what’s wrong with your project before you start burning through your list of agents and publishers. But it can hurt. In fact, they might be holding back if it doesn’t. […]

Frozen and Mental Illness

I’m aware it’s been a couple years since this movie came out but I feel like I’m explaining this to too many people and it would just be easier to have an article I can give them. Okay, so Frozen! I love that movie and it is wonderful and I sing along to the songs […]

Self-Compassion

One of my biggest weaknesses is being able to show myself compassion. I’m almost delusional in my readiness to brush off a friend’s faults, but I’ll bully myself for the same ones. I try to change my inner hatred but I always end up in the same place. I refuse to believe that a friend […]

How to Respond When Someone’s Anxious

From an evolutionary perspective, our brains do not like to be satisfied with what we have. Our brains also like to prepare us for things that might happen in the future. Sometimes, these two functions go crazy and a person ends up with ANXIETY. In more severe cases, an Anxiety Disorder. Anxiety is like the […]

Dating Myself

This week, I bought myself roses. I cut them down and put them in a mason jar full of water. I might buy myself some of those colored beads to put in there and make fresh flowers a weekly thing. But the important part is that I saw flowers, pink roses, and I didn’t just […]

Grown-up Love and Nostalgia

Romance has always been really hard for me. People would hit on me and tell me their friends liked me as a joke throughout middle school and high school. I was the weird fat girl. I had a friend or two, but I was not a romantic resource for anyone. By the time I went […]

Overcoming Fear

This isn’t about overcoming the fear of being bad. I’m not afraid to suck. What I’m talking about today is the fear of offending people. For instance, I could write about my ex boyfriend whom I found out six months into the relationship was engaged. I’ve been filtering little details into my writing for years […]

How I Handle Romantic Rejection

The other day, I gave a guy my number. It took a lot of courage to do that. As I braced myself for the rejection that I was certain I’d get in response to his receiving my phone number, I got to thinking about the one last time I gave a guy my number unprompted. […]

Mental Health and Writing

Last weekend, my mom asked me if I’m putting pressure on myself to write when I don’t want to. I tried to explain to her why I make myself write blog posts and drabbles throughout the week and I didn’t do a very good job of it. Well, I came up with a better answer […]
