Since I can remember, I have had a knack for expressing myself through writing. In fact, I feel more comfortable articulating my thoughts and feelings through words. I’ve kept a diary on my computer since 2009, which I have written in almost every day since. I find it incredibly therapeutic to write in and read back. I started this blog two years ago as an outlet to express my struggles with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. The more I blogged, the more I came to understand that being honest and open about life’s struggles opens the door for connection, acceptance and self-love. I truly believe that we need each other’s most honest stories to know that we are not alone. Life is not a perfect feed of filtered Instagram photos. Life consists of ups and downs, and perfect imperfections. Over the years, my blog has turned into my own little, personalized space on the web where I can share my innermost thoughts, feelings and the overall randomness in my mind with the world.
I’m only 23, and still in the midst of trying to figure out who I am and what I am meant to accomplish in life. As of right now, I have recently graduated from Northeastern University and am now a professional human being working as a Project Coordinator at a private program for psychiatric treatment and community integration in Boston, MA. I enjoy doing things that make me feel good: working out, yoga, spoiling my dog, going on spontaneous trips with my boyfriend, meditation (work in progress), writing, spending time with the people I love, and learning about anything psychology-related.
Cooper is my three year old ruby King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. He is the best little side kick in the world and I’m not even being biased when I say that. Everyone who meets him is always in awe on how good he is. He comes everywhere with me: work, car rides, appointments, flights. He is also a world traveler. Oh — and he’s famous!
