Letting Go

Letting Go is being able to embrace your realities and be entirely present in the moment with them, meanwhile understanding that you are not the sum total of those experiences. I’ve likened it to the use of a pencil to write, so in holding a pencil to write with it, you have to properly grip […]

Ampersands: a gray area

I feel like the reason most people need to know whether you are a man or a woman is to know how to treat you..which biases to employ.

Objectification is the dehumanization of a person – the same as seeing a whole woman as just a slick hole. […]

Life and Oranges

I used to be terrible at peeling oranges. The skin would end up hacked off in a chop session and I’d have to eat my oranges with big gashes in them..a very messy affair. It’s not that he ever volunteered, because it seems he took pleasure in peeling my oranges for me, but one day […]

Focus

You know, it’s a funny thing that happened when I began truly loving myself. I was no longer as self-conscious. I stopped thinking about whether people will still like me if I did x or y. My mind became less occupied with pondering how I came across. . It freed me to be more ‘present’ […]
