Every f**k-up has a silver lining. It just takes practice to see them.

This is the continuation of my previous post: Learn to be happy – and to share your happiness! It is OK… But truth be told it wasn't all Luther's fault. I was too busy being happy as well. I didn't need to write to process issues or struggles, or to stay happy/calm/sane. But I missed … Continue reading Every f**k-up has a silver lining. It just takes practice to see them.

I’d rather be happy than high….

I haven't been this happy in a long, long time. I used to be afraid of addressing my depression, because I liked my highs more than I detested my lows. Or at least I thought I did. I thought (or told myself as a means to avoid dealing?) that if I'd address and get rid … Continue reading I’d rather be happy than high….

6 months into recovery – and my life has changed forever!

Lately I have really started to feel safe and sound in my (mental health) recovery journey. I am beginning to trust that I am in fact in a solid place.

Not sure how I would feel about, or manage, all the … Continue reading Life is too short

And since I got back from my trip I haven't been able to write. Partially because I have been really … Continue reading The path to happiness

A letter to my Dad

For many years, before I decided to deal with all of my "issues", I have struggled with what causes me to feel like this. To be like this. Why can't I be happy [like everyone else]? Why do I have to keep battling anxiety attacks and depression? Why can't I just be "normal"? I have … Continue reading A letter to my Dad

To the friend who cut me off when I hit rock bottom: Thank You!

About four months ago now, I started dealing with some problems and issues that I have faced for the most part of my life but never had the courage to deal with. And it worked! I felt better, stronger and happier every day. I was able to shed a lot of bad habits and bad … Continue reading To the friend who cut me off when I hit rock bottom: Thank You!
