Writing here is for me, an exercise in vulnerability. Choosing to put aside any and all pretense, and just share myself, my heart, my thoughts, my experiences, knowing that my words can be read, and judged, by anyone who finds their way here.

Triggered and Release

Listening to: Ed Sheeran “Save Myself” “…I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain, Cause human beings are destined to radiate or drain…So before I save someone else, I’ve got to save myself But if I don’t then I’ll go back to where I’m rescuing a stranger Just because they needed […]
