Feelings----The Choice is Yours!

All of a sudden you are sitting some where and you get this feeling down deep in the pit of your stomach...you're' not sure why you feel this way, you are with your family and friend. There is really no reason you should feel like this around the people that know you best! But you do, you feel sick, you feel worthless, the feeling becomes overwhelming so you decide it best to go off into your own secluded area. Why do we feel like this?

Today if you are reading this I want you to instead start your day with "I am strong because I've made it through the storm, there is no storm bigger than the storm I just overcame!" This isn't going to change your life tomorrow....but it is going to give you a better vision on where you are going. You don't need to let those feelings of dismay hold you down, trap you, and or lie to you about who you are meant to be! Be stronger than the feelings within you and stop letting society conform you into a subculture you do not belong in!! The choice is your...


I hold a mental health gathering every Wednesday to allow people the opportunity to talk about the week's struggles.

If you would like to participate in this meeting each week please reach out to me so I can send you the link needed to join.
