When Disastrous Yields Delight

Pingback: https://wordpress.com/post/perfectlyimperfect32com.blog/4827 At just twenty-six-years-old, my world crumbled around me. The facade of a life that I had been pretending to enjoy crumbled around me. The death of my beloved grandfather was shortly followed by my long overdue filing for divorce. At the time my son was just three-years-old. I was a stay-at-home-mom with no car, … Continue reading When Disastrous Yields Delight

Anger Boiled Over

I am not afraid; you no longer scare me. Once so terrified of you, I spent hours scouring the Internet desperately trying to find your new address, license plate number, and make and model of your latest car. Not anymore. You've had your way with my emotions for the last time. Though not physically raped, … Continue reading Anger Boiled Over

"You're gonna push me on this … Continue reading Just Incase

Learning to Overcome

Pingback: https://tomboyforlife.wordpress.com/2017/03/02/always-in-doubt/ The Daily Post: https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/doubt/ During my thirty-three years of living, doubt and I have become closer companions than I care to acknowledge. Never one to make a clear, executive, or precise decision, I have long been plagued by doubt and second guessing myself. As a student I anxiously worried if my school work was good enough. … Continue reading Learning to Overcome

Comfort in Solitude

  As the sun shines brightly, the birds chirp happily, and everyone seems bright-eyed, and, ready to face the day that awaits them. Not me thought. Immediately upon the dreaded alarm clock going off, I pull my down comforter over my head, desperately attempting the alarm clock to grant me just one more moment of solitude. Immediately paralyzed with both … Continue reading Comfort in Solitude

A Room With a View

Soon a sea of white coats will storm the cold and sterile room. The harsh white light beats down upon me from above, Leaving me to see only floating stars and black spots dancing around as I desperately try to force my eyes to focus. Like the roaring waves of a hurricane ravaged sea my … Continue reading A Room With a View

Remembering

Five years ago today I drunkenly and selfishly sat in shock and denial. I couldn't function, had no motivation to try to function, and was as close to giving up as I've ever been. The next few days were all a blur. All I really remember is the soul crushing, almost numbing pain I felt … Continue reading Remembering
