Last Therapy Session

  Photo by Mikey Dabro on Pexels.comToday, I want to take a moment to look back and appreciate myself and the progress I have made in the past few months. My last meeting with my therapist was different from the others. Nothing overtly major, just different, in a good way? For one, we didn't have…

mind thoughts

It's so weird that putting holes in our ears is socially acceptable but removing a fetus from a body isn't. Society is so very weird and its rules commonly benefit the already privileged. Is it always going to be like this? I have been going through a lot recently. It seemd like every bad thing…

Finding a Home

Note: This is a story sequel for Chignon by Chi Chun. This was written for a literature class. 🙂   What, after all, is eternal in this world, and what is worth being serious about? “Like I said, this is the main question you need to answer in your final paper. Remember--”   The bell…

Pain and Memories

By the time she thought she had let go, she was reminded that that was not the case at all. She had not moved on, just moved forward without acknowledging what she felt. She didn't find any fault in that, but that was what held her back. "I want to forget. Remembering is so painful."…

Now, I understand that this kind of thinking was part of my struggle with internalized misogyny. However, this wasn't an individual struggle. Most girls…

Jake Peralta and Emotions

  Often men in media are portrayed as macho statues with minimal emotion, unless it's toward sports. Think Ron Swanson, Tony Stark--those Manly Men who refuse to feel emotion, therefore are strong, masculine, and admirable. Masculinity being tied to lack of emotion has been a stereotype for a long time, but Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Jake Peralta refuses…

Accountability and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

(Spoilers for Crazy Ex Girlfriend)   I'm not sure if I have mentioned it here before, but I am seriously in love with the CW's Crazy Ex Girlfriend. It features a strong female lead with an underrepresented mental illness as well as a diverse cast of different cultures, sexualities, and life experiences. However, today I…

Dealing with Depression

Hello there! If you're reading this then you're probably wondering how you can deal with depression. Or perhaps someone you love has depression and you're wondering how to help. Well, I don't claim to have all the answers but I do have depression and I know what it's like to not want to live anymore.…
