Blessed #AshWednesday everyone! I wanna shoutout to all of my friends who were lookin out for me today and let me know I had a smudge on my face. An even bigger thank you to the deaf girl who, with much courage I assume for I did not know her, typed out on her phone a message to warn me about the mess on my forehead. You get are all awesome! It’s nice to know that y’all have my back even when you don’t need to ;) Even if you may not believe, I hope God blesses each and every one of you during this lenten season. #ashtag #myfriendsareawesome #longpost #sorrynotsorry
do you remember the first time you were called annoying?
how your breath stopped short in your chest
the way the light drained from your eyes, though you knew your cheeks were ablaze
the way your throat tightened as you tried to form an argument that got lost on your tongue.
your eyes never left the floor that day.
you were 13.
you’re 20 now, and i still see the light fade from your eyes when you talk about your interests for “too long,”
apologies littering every other sentence,
words trailing off a cliff you haven’t jumped from in 7 years.
i could listen to you forever, though i know speaking for more than 3 uninterrupted minutes makes you anxious.
all i want you to know is that you deserve to be heard
for 3 minutes
for 10 minutes
for 2 hours
there will be people who cannot handle your grace, your beauty, your wisdom, your heart;
mostly because they can’t handle their own.
but you will never be
and have never been
You can be comfortable or courageous, but you cannot be both.
The light bulb symbolizes our thoughts and how over-thinking can kill us.
This is actually genius.

My thoughts are slowing killing me.
Each day my thoughts are killing me.
"Get out of your head."
I think you’ll find that every woman in her heart of hearts longs for three things: to be romanced, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, and to unveil beauty. That’s what makes a woman come alive.
"The brain can get sick too."
Re-make of this post.
End mental health stigma.
Mental health is not a joke.
