A lot of us dismiss the notion of mental health because we've never been diagnosed with depression or any other mental illness. Mental health goes far beyond a diagnosis. Every aspect of our lives contributes to the fortification or destruction of our minds.

If you are or ever have been depressed, this is for you.
If you've ever been overwhelmed and mentally exhausted, this is for you.
If you've ever felt like life was just a little too much, this is for you.

My goal is to be an example of what it's like to have issues and still achieve a great life. I want you to know you aren't alone from the general concept of mental unrest to the specific feelings that lead to our unique stories.

Control has been a journey. It has provoked growth, it has triggered healing and it has allowed me to connect with others in ways I never dreamed of. Control is my vulnerability, my sensitivity, my experiences, my hopes for myself and for you. 

Thank you,


My second year of purposeful celibacy 

I've shared my initial reasons for celibacy and what it was like to start. Here, I discuss year 2: Successes and lessons. I've found it to be helpful to be raw and honest. Candy-coating the journey hasn't been helpful for myself or anyone these posts happen to reach.
