I have been journal writing since I was in middle school. I use it as a way to express myself and the random thoughts that I have. I come from a dysfunctional family, but who doesn’t? A lot of the things I use to write were about the dysfunction going on and my perception on my life growing up.
How did my blog get it‘s name?
Sometimes my thoughts get the better of me and start to make me feel a little insane. Thus, my blog was born, to try and reclaim my sanity one blog post at a time.
In my blog, I write about a multitude of things from my thoughts, society, parenting, mental health, anxiety, depression, daily life, experiences, and anything else that trips my trigger. I think of it as sort of a vlog, but without all the noise.
I am a very straight forward person who loves paying attention to minor details. I consider myself to be quirky, generous, creative, honest, and empathetic. I love fashion, interior design, coloring my hair unnatural colors, and trying new foods constantly.
I am not afraid to be vulnerable. With that, I think it is important to say that I have been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder, OCD, PTSD, and Borderline Personality Disorder.
I believe in equality for all. I believe we are all unique, yet we are all human and deserve respect.
I also believe that everyone is entitled to believe what they want to, but that doesn’t mean their ideas are the ONLY right ones. If people would stop protesting their beliefs onto others and just let people do their own thing (so long as no one is getting hurt) then the world would be much better off.
Feel free to express yourself on the topics that I post. I am always open to discussions that are civil. I hope you continue to stick around.
