My addiction is a little shocking.

So I’ve learned I’m addicted to people. What!? Yep. It’s true. My therapist pointed it out to me and I was shocked. How could I be addicted to a person?  Then like every new idea I let it soak in. Then I realized it may be true! I remember in college I had to read…

The Pretenders were a group not me…

(What it’s like when people look over your shoulder for someone better to talk with. ) I refuse to pretend to be perfect. Perfection doesn’t go hand in hand with being human. It’s never possible. I attended a party recently and tried to be soft spoken and not be well, me. Yep I’m loud,a klutz(I…

How do you forgive?

My brother is on this list. That picture is a sum of how he’s treated me my whole life. My close friend said people can’t grasp how badly he treats me until you witness us together for 15 minutes. I vividly remember sitting in my room at 13 and him telling me “you just have…

I’d be someone’s 17th choice.

So my friend wanted a job she found out about a couple months ago but the “people in power” went in another direction. Fast forward to today and  the position is still open. Now the “people in power” want to interview her. She said she doesn’t want to be someone’s 2nd choice. I said “if…

The power is in you.

(With my former “Big Sister” Lisa who helps me remember my powers) I was volunteering for my favorite organization Big Brothers Big Sisters the other day and Samuel said a truth. Samuel was 8 and he gets it. Sam said “if you drink the whole carton of Milk,  you’ll have the power it says on…
