is giving yourself permission
to be who you are” – from REQUIEM, a collection of Poetry
I have struggled for many years with my mental health and identity. I utilized unhealthy coping mechanisms for many years because I did not have the proper support, and this led me down a dark path with alcohol. After I developed serious health issues, I reached out for help. I learned healthier coping mechanisms that allowed me to live a sober life. These experiences taught me so much about who I am, what I want, and what I deserve from those who are in my life. I became the person I always wanted to be, and I hope that by sharing my story I can inspire someone to overcome adversity, to reach out for help, and to live in their truth, unapologetically.
