I walked away

I walked away The choice I made to save myself There may come a time in which, to save yourself, you will have to walk away, and it will be the hardest thing you ever have to do. When I was little, my uncle was one of the coolest people I knew. He was in his early 20’s when I was born, which is funny to think about now being older than he was at that time. But from my earliest memories as 4-year-old me, next to my dad, he was probably my favorite person in the world as I knew it. He watched me while my parents worked. We played games...

I’ve Changed

I’ve Changed   New city, a little writer’s block, still trying to change the world one relationship at a time I’ve had (pretty bad) a case of writer’s block for over a year. My anxiety got the best of me last year and I just couldn’t write anymore. I struggled to do anything that previously brought me joy- I think because I lost of sense for what that even was. I lost the drive. I lost the feeling of it meaning anything. I lost my sense of purpose. Sometimes I just cried because the days just felt too...

Wheel of Life Activity Free download below! The Wheel of Life Activity is one of the most basic tools you can use to get your thoughts and anxieties in order before you make a change in your life.  It’s essentially a pie chart of major categories that encompass your life- family, social life, career etc.  Often when we are feeling extremely overwhelmed with life, we tend to lump all of our stresses and problems together into the general lump of “Everything is failing” “Life is hard” “I don’t even know...

Anxiety: The habit of worrying, spiraling out of control

Anxiety: The habit of worrying, spiraling out of control Taking control of anxiety How many times have you thought of yourself as a “worrier” or felt like anxiety ran its on course in your life? I’ve been there. I used to think that there was nothing I could do about my anxiety because whenever I tried to out-think anxiety, it seemed to multiply. Whenever I tried to force myself to stop worrying, something new would pop into my mind. Worry and anxiety had a way of ruining a perfectly good moment- usually one I looked forward...

Codependency Uncomplicated

Codependency Uncomplicated Codependency: The result of unhealed childhood trauma Most people, if they know of codependency at all, think of it as an issue a people deal with who are in a relationship with someone battling an addiction or illness. The dictionary definition is “excessive emotional or psychological reliance on a partner, typically a partner who requires support due to an illness or addiction”. While both of these ideas have truth to them, I think they are very broad vague definitions of what codependency really is. Before I give...

A Look Into My Past

A Look Into My Past

A Look Into My Past Sometimes I wonder how I can connect and find the people I want to help- the people that are struggling like I have- when it can be difficult to explain how my life was in the past. It’s not because it wasn’t painful. It’s because I worked so hard to block out the memories that even when I do remember, it’s like I’m remembering someone else’s past- someone else’s family and someone else’s story. Even when I can picture the moments, when I have flashes of memory, it’s almost like...

5 Tools For Detachment

5 Tools For Detachment

So here’s the thing. I could tell you that in order to detach from your loved one that you need to move a couple 100 miles away from them, block them on all social media, and find a new circle of friends. I could tell you that it will take x number of months to complete the process, and that you will have to avoid contact for so many days to really detach. I could tell you that this is a foolproof way to detach, but it’s not. While doing some or all of the things that I mentioned may help you on the beginning part of your journey, the only...

Self-care and Codependency

Self-care and Codependency

Self-care and Codependency Why self-care is the more important topic I talk more specifically about taking care of yourself than I do about codependency and some of you may be wondering why. The reason is that I think a lack of self-care and self- love is at the heart of codependency. Living with or in a dysfunctional relationship damages the soul. It can cause us to lose sight of ourselves and our potential. I think when we get used to being a caretaker we develop one of two thoughts. 1. Why should I have to work on myself when he or she...

Better Communication, Freer Life

Better Communication, Freer Life How learning to communicate can lead to a happier life For a long time, the way my family dealt with uncomfortable situations was by pushing them under the rug. We pretended it wasn’t happening. We put on a happy face. And we pushed forward. In many ways, this helped me develop into the emotionally strong person I am today, but in many other ways it made things really difficult. We talked, but we didn’t really talk. To the point where we didn’t really know what was going on with each other...
