Attention lovers of Poetry!!
Skeleton Trees is one of the most powerful collections of poetry I’ve ever read. TJ articulates the vulnerability of longing and the constant heartbreak that comes with emotional abuse. Her authenticity shines through the rawness of her emotions. I’m especially grateful to the author because during one of my darkest times, her words inspired me to write about my own traumatic experiences. As cliché as it may sound, I remember I read it all in one sitting because I just couldn’t put it down. Do yourself a favor and check it out on Amazon!

Your endless enthusiasm combined with your head-turning audacity are what make… Continue reading Fall in Love with Yourself: A Letter to Me at 22
Gaslighting is the act of manipulation using psychological efforts to make a person question their own sanity and reality. The behavior ranges from toxic communication to severe emotional abuse, depending on how frequent it is. It is a tactic used by abusers, control freaks AND ordinary people.
