*Trigger warning: I discuss sexual abuse in this post* I hate not knowing how to feel…except for numb…that’s mostly what I feel (when it comes to one situation, anyways)… I had blocked something out of my mind several months ago. Thing is–I wrote about it (thanks a lot, past Rae), in detail, the day after… Continue reading When You Don’t Want To Remember.
I haven’t been able to sleep lately. I get in bed and my mind is flooded with nonstop thoughts. Every noise in the house seems to be amplified. My heart races and sometimes I can’t hardly catch my breath. What is it with these restless nights? I have to be up by 6:30, so tonight… Continue reading Climb out of the darkness.
With all of the shootings and stuff going on lately, my heart is breaking. When I watched the video of Alton Sterling‘s wife being interviewed-or giving a speech-addressing the nation…I started bawling.

So today’s daily post is the word “open.” I immediately cringed…that’s probably not a good sign. My mind went straight to being emotionally open. I think there is always a reason that your mind immediately goes to one thing when you read/hear a specific word. I don’t want to talk about being emotionally open. Yet…that’s exactly… Continue reading Open…Yikes…
Sometimes, I wonder how many people around us are actually sociopaths? Have you ever met someone and thought, “hmm…I wonder if that person is actually a sociopath?” I sure have. Several times, actually. I mentioned before in my post about my “Dysfunctional Friend Family,” that I’m pretty sure a couple of the guys in our… Continue reading That Blank Stare.
