I am here to talk about personal stories, finally. Often times, I describe myself as an "open book" but I choose which chapters and pages of that book that people hear. While privacy is still important to me, I want to open up more. I want to open up in a way that is protectibe, but also vulnerable. I want to share stories, experiences, and lessons from my life that are difficult to talk about--things that I'm ashamed of, things that I am scared of, abd how many times, I am getting in my own way. I want to get into the nitty gritty of what happens daily and how it affects me. Writing is therapy and it's time I be honest with myself about where I am in my life journey. If any of my writings inspire or encourage you to reach out to me, I am extremely open to discussions; not to provide advice, but simply have a conversation about how s**t can really suck sometimes!
