How I Started My Blog
Living with anxiety is difficult. Especially as a person of color. You are taught from a young age that it’s taboo and that you are overreacting or you need to pray. Well I prayed a lot as a kid. I prayed that my brain would be different and that I could turn off my thoughts. I prayed that I could stop being obsessive compulsive. I prayed that I stopped having emotional outbursts. However, prayer is a tool, not a solution. It wasn’t until I was in my 20s that I decided to speak to my doctor about it. She recommended that I seek out a therapist. I did, it was the best decision I could have made for myself. I want people, especially young women of color, to know that it’s ok to not be perfect. I can only hope that through my posts, I can help someone on their path to a better quality of life.
Advice to Bloggers
I’m so new to this that I feel very hesitant to give advice. All that I can really say is, be honest. People respond to honesty. People crave authenticity. Be you and the other pieces to the puzzle will come together. Also, forget being the perfect writer, just express yourself however you can. I am not a writer. I’m just a person with too much on her mind. 😉
I cannot wait to nominate 15 other bloggers. I may not always like every post you put up but I read them and am encouraged by you everyday! 🙏🕉❤️
