Why can’t we all be honest and admit that we feel insecure sometimes? Why can’t we take a deep breath and say what we’ve been struggling with lately or even our whole lives? I don’t think it’s right that in society we feel pressured to ‘cover up’ our insecurities in order to pretend that we’re completely carefree […]
Not giving that part of myself to anyone feels good, it truly does. No one can hurt me with it or use it against me. Maybe that seems paranoid, but it’s true that trust has to be earned and until that happens, you’re better off keeping them at arms length until they prove they can […]
Walking through the flames, I don’t feel the heat burn or even touch my skin. They leap out on either side of me while bright, hot embers shoot out and threaten to hit me. I can almost see their gleaming, evil eyes as they dare me to keep walking.
When you look outside all you see is jagged, shards of glass scattered in every direction on the concrete ground. You don’t know why they’re there, and although a part of you wants to find out, another part of you tells you that you won’t like what you see once you do. The sight is ugly with pieces of sharp […]

I can’t help it either; it’s just my natural […]
It’s 2016 and social media is absolutely everywhere. If there’s one thing that’s pretty hard (if not impossible) to escape it’s the huge presence of social media and the roles that it plays in our lives. Of course there are amazing things that social media gives us, but I think that spending so much of our time on social […]
Do secrets tear relationships apart? None of us are perfect; we all have a closet full of skeletons that we’ve gathered over the course of our life. So at what point to secrets become toxic to a relationship and at what point do we need to be brave and share our secrets for all the good […]
I was only six years old when my parents got divorced. It was a difficult age to be at because I was too young to have sensed it coming and I was too old to grow up in two separates homes without knowing anything of a different lifestyle.
