Death will be the Life of Me

I think this “death fear” inside me is prohibiting my body’s healing.

Physical Pain, Mental Pain, is it all the Same?

You can run from a childhood food addiction, but you can’t hide. It’ll catch up with you, every time.

One Day at a Time

Why does it seem like things must completely fall apart- before the rebuild? It seems like everything is falling apart right now. School. Home. Family. Life. I’m ready to make circumstances better, but it’s like walking upstream in an overflowing river. Some things are little. Some things are big. But nothing is right.

Oxford Languages define “empath” as a person with the paranormal ability to apprehend the mental or emotional state of another individual.

I didn’t workout as much as usual and myContinue reading “Don’t Look at Me”

Yesterday was a gorgeous March Friday in Michigan. In celebration of the great weather we’ve had all week, I ventured out to do some leisurely shopping at TJ Maxx. The only thing that I was specifically looking for was a St. Patty’s Day mask. Anything else that I found would be a bonus. It takesContinue reading “Are We Sure Stuff Doesn’t Make Us Happy?”
