You are never too broken

Two women, two singers, two lovely voices.

One is younger than I am, and it takes her a long time to get to the point (but at least she makes it on her own website):

You are never too broken

The other is older than I am (so I have listened to her for many years already), and she sums it up this way:

I feel just as bad as I did — but I can buy more ice cream cones

All these things that have happened I know are only making me better and stronger

Yes, it hurts to go through them. But I know they’re shaping me, strengthening me, and making me better. I can handle things I never thought I’d need to. I’m reminded who I am. I’m strong and I’m capable. And now that I’ve worked through most of the immediate stuff, I can start getting back to the other stuff I’m working on to improve myself.

She has called me out on this and with her saying it and the help of my therapist I am becoming a better person

As hard as it is for me to recognize my own faults, I am so proud of her for taking it upon herself to call me out. I know that was probably hard on her but I also know it showed major growth since we both tended to brush some small things under the rug.

I personally think therapy can do good for everyone

Keywords: therapy

Sometimes you just need a person to listen and not bombard you with advice and opinions. It’s not a place where you get put in a room with bright white light and you get forced to speak. It’s a safe environment where you can open up without feeling harmed or judged.

Gaslighting by definition is an act of undermining a partners emotions and feelings in a way to deny their reality

By invalidating their feelings and emotions, the gaslightee is being told they are wrong. Gaslighting is most commonly seen in relationship dynamics as an attempt to control the moment. To stop the conflict. To ease the gaslighter’s anxiety, and to regain control in a degraded power struggle. Now before you gaslight me into calling me too sensitive, let me call attention to the fact disagreements, even arguments, are healthy in relationships. The difference between a healthy dynamic and an abusive one is hearing and validating the person’s concerns. If the person you are arguing with is deflecting responsibility in an attempt to tear down their partner, this is called gaslighting. Even better if the person being gaslit is a pleaser, trying to cater to other’s needs and expectations. I call this an easy mark. As an empath, I can often see my own responsibility in situations where I shouldn’t. I can EMPATHIZE with someone else’s reality and this can open the door to being taken advantage of, even gaslit.

I want to create a place that is safe and positive and where I can also share my knowledge and insight and maybe help someone else

Keywords: {0}

My name is Angie and I am from a small town in Iowa. I was born and raised in the same town and have only live a little bit of my life in towns nearby. I am creating a place where I can share my journey on the road to healing and finding peace. I have lived with depression and anxiety most of my life and feel like it is time to share and help others with their journey.

YOU are the reason I want nothing more than to die every single fucking day I have to yell at my fucking mind to not think about your body pressed against mine

Every fucking moment of my life is consumed by the mere thought of you and I fucking hate you for it.

Sensitive people have so much to offer the world — we’re the peacekeepers and the shoulders people cry on, and we’re the ones people want to live next to because we are respectful of noise levels — but we just need the space to do that

Keywords: relatable

The more nurtured we feel, the more we can tune in to our gifts, and the more we can be of service to the world.
