B+s, not A+s

One of the greatest pieces of advice I've heard lately has stayed with me for almost a month now. But first, a little background: Being a recovering perfectionist, I've known to struggle with doing everything & doing it all by myself with no errors. Asking for help was viewed as weakness & my high & …

Refreshingly honest

If you've been with me for a good amount of time, you know how I feel about manipulation, deception, & the mental games people play. In short, I don't do it. I refuse to give in or to be controlled by what they want. It's horseshit, right? So in the midst of all of that, …

Choosing happiness

So all day yesterday, I kept feeling like I was missing the mark. What is it about me that says, "Nah, fam?" As you know, in one of my relationships, I've tried REPEATEDLY to work on our differences but there's been no active change. I can't keep throwing this in the closet, shutting the door …
