The Raw Truth: Reagan

In high school, I was told by someone who I thought loved me that I had an awkward body, and that’s exactly where my body image issues and eating disorder began. I went from being a girl who worked out twice a day and played sports all year round to doing yoga and Pilates, then […]

The Raw Truth: Megan

I have been through a lot in my life, more than most experience in their life time. I have been raped twice, been given a permeant STD by one of my rapists, sexually harassed, stalked, had an eating disorder for 15 years and spent 4 months in an inpatient treatment center, lost everything in house […]

Timing: Morgan

I used to have this perfect picture in my mind of what my life would be like when I was in my twenties. I planned on being married by 21 (I know, crazy). I thought I would graduate from a four year college, have a Bachelor’s degree in *whatever* and have a career by the […]

Quieting Your Inner Critic: Erin

For as long as I can remember, I’ve criticized every inch of myself. As a dancer, a runner, and model (and I use that term loosely.

Control, Vulnerability, Walls and Letting Go: Heidi

I mean, if these words make your shoulders tense up, you know where I’m coming from.  We’re all human, folks, we have good days and bad, and most of the time we only show the good – we don’t let people see behind the mask.  But you know what, we only get one life, and […]

How I Became Foxy: Bridget

My story starts when I was born cross-eyed. Then at 4 years old, my school had me fill out “what do you want to be when you grow up?” My young soul knew… I wrote “artist.” I didn’t I spelled it right at that age, but you get the point. Growing up, girls were always […]

The Raw Truth: Emily

Comparison.  We are all guilty of it. I grew up comparing my life to everyone around me. My sister, the skinny, tan, social butterfly. My friends, athletic, smart, tall, always had boyfriends. Then there was me, wanting to change every possible aspect about myself. I hated my hair, my skin tone, my body shape, my […]

The Raw Truth: Sophia

So here it is, my raw, unfiltered, honest truth: I have felt isolated by rejection and have experienced love through forgiveness. I have been misled by expectations and had them restored with honesty. I have lived through crippling anxiety and had it dissolved with trust. It’s been raw, it’s been rough but it’s my truth. […]

The Raw Truth: Katie

2018… man there’s a tough crowd out there! Why do we look to others for gratification? Why do we let others make us not believe in ourselves? And good grief why do we morph ourselves into someone we are not for approval of others?? Why do we let others get comfortable hurting us… because they […]
