My Intentions

Here are my intentions with this blog.

To create a safe space for people to learn about and talk about mental illness. To share my journey and what I’ve learned along the way with people who are open to learning about it. To find ways to laugh and smile through the seriousness of mental illness. To use my life as a lesson. To make you feel like you’re not alone. To help people find hope.

I’m just one person living with a mental illness. I’m not here to diagnose you or make you think I know it all. I’m not here to say that anxiety is a one-size-fits-all mental illness. Your experiences are different than my experiences, but some of my experiences may help you learn something or feel less alone.

So I hope you join me on this journey. I hope my intentions for this blog are realized.

I’ve always been a writer, and I’ve always wanted to share with the intention of helping people. This is one way I believe I can do that. It’s a big and scary leap for me to do this. Moreover, it’s something I can do for myself, as life doesn’t often allot me opportunities that are self-serving as well as fulfilling.

Your friend,
