Mental health makes people feel shame so let’s FINALLY talk about it!
This blog is a composition of my life, my passion and my desire to truly help others. Blogging is something I have wanted to do for a long time, but I have been scared to fail. As you learn more about me, you will see this is a common theme in my life.
As a child, I grew up in a home that I thought was normal. Mom…dad…and me! I am an only child and therefore everyone thought I was spoiled. Just the opposite of that occurred through my life. I chose the hard path and I have worked my tail off for everything I have ever gotten, believed in or needed. I always knew I was different, because I truly am. My brain doesn’t work like anyone else’s. I think outside of the box and sometimes that gets me in trouble, but I feel it has helped me adapt in many situations. Growing up, I felt that my mom didn’t like me. She was very hard on me. My mom and dad, it seemed, had a perfect marriage and perfect friends. All I ever wanted to do was to please my mom and all I ever got from her was (what I thought) a theme of disappointment. I was scared of her and how she would react if I wasn’t perfect. I always wanted to make her happy until high school. Then she just became annoying. I worked hard in school with school work and sports and I had a job to pay for my own stuff. I never wanted to ask for anything because I didn’t want to disappoint her and have her think I couldn’t do something on my own.
