Mental Monday Special: The Fights, The Defeats, The Victories, and The Healing.

It’s tough dealing with depression and anxiety daily. I know better than anyone that fighting it alone is something that no one should have to do.

Mental Monday: Being Loved Pt 2

In my opinion, the most dangerous drug known to man is love. It’s addicting, it feels good, you’re not yourself. You’ll do anything in the world to hold on to it, but one wrong move and it’s gone.
