Heartbreak.

Heartbreak is a bitch you end up becoming mutual acquaintances with once you get to know it. A little over a year ago, I would spend most mornings numbly staring at my popcorn ceiling until I had to peel myself out of bed for work. On the car ride home I’d blare My Chemical Romance […]

Venturing into the Unknown

Well I’ve done it. I feel like I’m in a “coming of age” movie about a 20-something year old girl who moves across the country to a big city. Except, this movie is real and doesn’t have writers who can easy type in a feel good ending. As I drove into Los Angeles with my […]

Self Discovery Empowerment

I found myself smiling at her as we sat on our beige couch in our brand new apartment with wine glasses in our hands.  She just catapulted herself into another drawn out story of how she wanted to get to know herself better and how she felt cheated that she didn’t give herself the valuable […]

Ignorance to Knowledge to Action

I’ve stared at a blank screen for months now. Not knowing what to write. Not knowing who I wanted to be behind the words. I felt restricted, like if I said the wrong thing the vulnerability of being human would be unmasked…and I wasn’t sure if I wanted everyone to know how imperfect and ignorant […]

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 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

Guest Writer: Kathleen

What do people want in life? It’s a question psychologists have attempted to answer for centuries. I was pondering this answer one day myself, so I decided to ask the most reliable source I know- Google. Google provided me with 7,620,000,000 results. Astounding, right? Considering there were more results than people on Earth, I decided […]

If we could see the expansiveness of our souls, we’d feel powerful and self- assured. We wouldn’t second guess our adequacy […]
