You’re only human…learn from it and move on…

Sometimes we forget everyone is different and not everyone is going to connect with you how you imagine.

In my overeagerness to build community and to find my tribe, I may have burned a bridge or two. Inadvertently, I failed to see boundaries , red flags, and I ignored my instincts.

This is the complexity of my journey to heal from trauma, negative experiences, unlearn and relearn healthier coping mechanism and behaviors etc.

I have learned that isolating when going through difficult times is not healthy and I have also learned that you can’t expect more than what people are willing to give. I want to learn how to meet people where they are…

I have learned that I can trust my instincts again because every time I have ignored them, I got burned…

I have learned that my view of community, collaboration, friendship is my own and it may differ from others.

I have learned to forgive myself when I make mistakes because I am human and I come from a loving place.

I have learned that I can leave my door open, but I can’t expect anyone to walk through it and that’s ok.

I know my journey to live a healthier life, surrounded by amazing individuals is worth the fight…no turning back to that dark place of solitude I used to call home.

This page will be a safe place for anyone who visits. My goal is to capture important concepts I have learned in my journey so self-discovery and love. This process has been both taxing and liberating, painful and exhilarating. I will do my best to be authentic when I write and as vulnerable as I'm comfortable with; we have to remember that sometimes we have to take care of ourselves. It is okay to say, when something is too much to handle. I encourage any visitor I may attract to reflect on what you read through journaling or having conversations with someone you feel safe with. Feel free to send me topic suggestions and or your reponses to my posts.
