Perfectionism

Perfectionism- refusal to accept any standard short of perfection. https://www.psychologytoday.com/basics/perfectionism   Having to be perfect in all areas of life can be overwhelming and toxic.

Supporting One Another

Supporting one another  I just recently watched the Netflix series–13 Reasons Why. I won’t give anything away, but this series is one that promotes awareness.

you are not alone.

In times of trial, hardship, or small moments of unexpected sadness…don’t be overtaken. It might not seem so, but you are not and never will be alone in feeling those things.

Start Within

  You must first start within. Healing, improving…do it from the inside out. It is about letting go of those internal rules and expectations you have created for yourself, and letting go of the outside expectations as well. This life is about you. Following your dreams, achieving the things that you want to, and becoming…
