I abandoned blogging for a while on this site because life. I haven’t stopped writing though. I chose to write for a website called The Mighty which is a website dedicated to telling stories and bringing awareness in order to end the stigma surrounding people who suffer from mental illness and chronic illness. I write mostly about my experience with bipolar disorder and suicide. It is my truth to tell and in the end my goal is to spread as much hope as possible.
I’ve decided to return to this space because I enjoy instant gratification, which means I get to write and then publish immediately. I think this is probably both good and bad, sometimes it’s good to not publish right away. One of my greatest loves in life is writing. Words are my refuge.
The world these days feels crazy and out of control, so this place and my words need to become my refuge. Words feel like the only control I have left. They can be used to soothe and heal, or to bring knowledge and enlightenment. Words to me are one of the most powerful forces on the planet.
