I’m Alex! I created this blog initially to be my outlet for dealing with anxiety/depression. However, writing is sincerely one of many passions and overall – it has helped me cope with hardships. Whether poetry or my thoughts, it makes a difference. I’m now 22 and still on the road to recovery within’ myself. I am learning to accept things that I cannot change, and most importantly – myself. I am learning to embrace one as a whole and realizing that my well being is the most important; To care and love for myself first is the most difficult yet so rewarding to be able to say that my mind matters, my words matters, my worth matters. Truth is, I’ve gotten to the point where I am assuredly content with life, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still have my own demons, struggles and daily battles. This is a process and progress in every day. Things could always be worse and though I may take a few steps back from time to time, I will not give up. It’s about accepting the good, the bad and the ugly. To anyone who finds their way here: this is for you too. To be honest, I am just a girl aspiring to guide and help others find their way just as some pretty amazing women did for me. You all know who you are: you paved the way, and I appreciate you more than you may know. The support, guidance and unconditional love you’ve given, has shaped me into who I am today. So thank you – for everything.
