Uncomfortable: Taking Ownership of Our Mistakes

No one likes to admit when they’re wrong. It’s this human instinct we possess to protect ourselves from the hurt, from the bad that may ensue after we make a mistake. So, because of this, we have a legitimate issue when it comes to owning our mistakes, our flaws, our imperfections. And everyone has them; but it is so much easier for us to point out the flaws in others than it is for us to take a good hard look at ourselves.  Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Taking Ownership of Our Mistakes”

Uncomfortable: Who do You Want to be?

Yes, this is a legit deep question here. However, we all ask ourselves this question at some point. Some of us maybe once a week, or a couple times a month, and others – maybe several times a day. The key here is that we are asking ourselves who we want to be, not whatContinue reading “Uncomfortable: Who do You Want to be?”

Have you heard of the “crazy/hot scale” A.K.A. the “Hot Crazy Matrix”? If you haven’t, sadly, it is a thing for this generation. But, ya know what? I think it is TRASH!!!!

Uncomfortable: My Continuous Battle with Bulimia Nervosa

This is not a comfortable conversation at all, but that’s what this blog is all about, right? Honesty?!
A lot of people look at eating disorders as a “phase” in someone’s life. But, what many people don’t understand, and what most of us (who have had an eating disorder) go through, is wayyyyyy more complicated than a phase. An eating disorder is a mindset, and changing that mindset and your ideas about your body, isn’t always easy. For me, this has proven to be a constant battle…  Continue reading “Uncomfortable: My Continuous Battle with Bulimia Nervosa”

Uncomfortable: Freedom of Speech | Does it Still Exist?

More than five different Conservative events, on college campuses, have been cancelled since the beginning of this year due to violence, or the threat of violence against the scheduled speakers.
Milo Yiannopoulos had two events cancelled at the beginning of the year. One at UC Davis in January and one at UC Berkeley in February.
