Writing is a Form of Therapy in Itself

Writing has been an outlet that I have used since I was very young. I was the kid that had one of those diaries with a lock on it. In high school I wrote in a journal and it benefited me plenty at that time. I had no one to discuss my feeling with, I was angry, depressed and I was going through some things in my life and writing about my feeling saved my life. I also spent lots of hours drawing and that too seemed like an outlet even though I did it during class hours and got me in trouble often.

Welcome

Welcome,

If you are here you might be struggling or know someone who is. I too have struggle, I too continue to do so, At times I too wondered why I am here? What ever it is your going through remember it shall pass; it might not seem like it will right now, but it will; it does pass you will be okay :)
This blog used to be a place that I used for my struggles with depression, my social anxiety, my daily stress it was nice until it became highly triggering for myself and I did not want anyone else to stumble upon my public blog and feel the same while reading my entries. Instead I am choosing to draft all my previous posts and start fresh. A new start for me and you. I would like to dedicate this space for self-care of you and my soul; a place where you can come and look for coping skills and ideas that will help you when your struggling or just to hopefully remain more positive.
