This blog was created for those who are suffering through emotional pain, mental illness and/or an addiction. I know you are out there and you are not alone. Sometimes it may feel like you are the only imperfect soul living amongst beings of perfection who either judge you, ignore you, want to fix you, give up on you, or are exasperated and frustrated by you. It may seem like everyone else around you is “normal” and “happy” and “has it together” while you struggle with the simplicities of life, like getting out of bed, getting dress, and getting your head into the game of life. While many are motivated enough to make to work, you struggle with making it to the breakfast table. They may struggle to the top, while you struggle with keeping sane, and feeling “normal”, however you may define that to be. I am with you. Sometimes it may feel like these “perfect” beings that live among us, look down on us with disgust and disdain. They judge, label and make us feel unworthy of patience and love, but you are worthy. You matter. The health of your gray matter-matters. This blog was created to encourage healthy minds and healthy relationships -with self and with others. It was created to inspire, encourage, uplift, and commiserate because misery needs company. And in good company, misery becomes mastery -mastery of our lives, our self love, our hope and our destiny. Come with me along this journey.
