Back and posting weekly again - and I'm so excited! I have so much planned for the year, and I can't wait to let you in on all my projects I've been working on! If you know me, you know that National Eating Disorder Awareness week is one of my favorite weeks of the year. I love raising awareness every day of the year, but it definitely helps when there is a WHOLE WEEK dedicated to it! If you're interested in how I've been promoting awareness, and statistics regarding eating disorders - keep on reading!
Before I could even take a breath, 2017 is.... over?! Not quite, but we have less than a month, and I just can't believe it. This year, I was dragged through hell and back - and I'm still recovering from the damage that was done. Slowly but surely, I keep putting one foot in front of the other, and that's all we can really do, right? I'm back and have so much planned for 2018, but I wanted to check in with you all beforehand!
Having a mental illness is scary. Accepting that you have a mental illness can be even scarier. You feel alone, isolated, and just...scared. Constantly. And that's exactly how I felt for years.
I actually cannot believe it's already 2017! I feel like I was just complaining about how my senior year of high school was going, and now I'm sitting here about to start my second semester of sophomore year of college. I never thought that it would come, and now that it has I'm feeling a little overwhelmed.
I get a lot of comments from people regarding my blog. Some negative, some positive. Usually ranging between the comments of "Do you really think you could make a difference?" to "You're blog has helped me so much". Naturally, I prefer the latter but I'm open to comments of any kind. No big deal.
While I get so many comments about my blog, the question I get stays pretty constant. It's always some variation of "Why do you blog?". Honestly, the simple answer to this question is because I love it. Let me elaborate though.
UGHHH. I'm sighing an aggravated sigh until the next two weeks are over. It's almost time for finals which means I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get everything done and accomplished.
Happy holidays my beautiful followers! I hope you're all enjoying spending time with friends and family.
You know, I really love the holiday season. I love spending time with all my family when I don't see them all that often, I love Christmas shopping and making Christmas lists, and I just love the holiday spirit. Except when I don't.
Hello my beautiful followers!
Long time no see, eh? Well, I've had a ton going on so here's an update for you. Some good, and some well..... not so good.
I guess the biggest thing that's happened in my life since I've written last is I made the (terrifying) decision to go back to therapy. I had an amazing summer and things were great, but then when I got back on campus things started to be less than great and it quickly became something I couldn't handle on my own. I had a really hard time coping with the fact that I couldn't do it myself.
To the people I hurt while I was hurting,
Let me start by saying that I am sorry. I am sorry that I was not the person you expected me to be and I am sorry that I let you down.
You have to understand, though, that I was not myself, and while that is not an excuse I hope you can find the heart to forgive anything I said or did during this dark time in my life.
It's sad that we live in a world where so many people live to tear other people down. And what's even worse is that so many of the words we use to insult a person shouldn't hold a negative connotation. We shouldn't be tearing each other down regardless, but here are a few things our society views as insults that we really need to put to rest.
