It seems like every day, the news is reporting on some new major systemic failure in our country. Housing, banks, jobs, food supply, roads, and bridges. Nothing has been left unscathed. In the last 5 years, there seems to be an extremely rapid decline of the nation

Admission is the First Step
So here’s something that isn’t talked about, but something I deal with and have, every day of my life. It is something most people don’t consider almost ever.
Trying to Heal
I wanted to write a second post on yesterday’s post regarding bullies. I hate writing negative posts and really try to find a positive light at the end, but sometimes, there is just no light at the end of a tunnel. There is no open end of some tunnels.
The Lasting Effects of Bullies
I woke up Saturday morning, feeling angry at someone who has not been a relevant part of my life since 2018. I hate it when something from my past comes and invokes all the old feelings I had back then. It says to me that I haven’t allowed myself to close that chapter in my life and I really need to because there won’t be any secure form of closure.
The Best Mental Break Ever
As I said in a previous post, I had a mental break last year. It was a scary, but somewhat life changing event that I am still processing, adjusting and applying to my life, nearly every day.

B12 is My Favorite and My Best
On the heels of yesterday’s rather downish post, I wanted to move back in an upwards direction. Not that life isn’t still a huge struggle, and not that I don’t constantly feel like I’m standing on a very scary precipice, but, I’ve worked through a lot, been through a lot of mental hurdles, and come to a better space in my brain.
Calling for Help
A funny thing often happens when you take that step, suck up the courage, and admit to the world the deep seated pain of loneliness and depression that has been prevalent in your life for longer than you can remember being happy.
It’s been a while and a year or so. Things have changed even as they sort of stayed the same. It is the start of a new spring, and to be honest, it feels like the start of a lot of new.
Ever worked at a job that made you question your competency? Not the people you work with creating that mindset, but the way your work is evaluated?
