- but how do we do that?
when the world never taught us how to take care
when the world never supported this care-taking

"just take better care" and we answer crying "but how?!"

your family will still love you.
you are not falling behind.

the story behind SelfCareSeries
The SelfCareSeries has sprung from my own story with mental health hardships.
They've been a part of me for as long as I can remember. The seemingly casual "not good enougness" turned into an ED, which turned into anxiety, which turned into changing my life and the way I lived - an live - it.
Being chained to my bed and living in emotional solitude smashed my feelings into my face, and I realized that I was gonna miss out on life if I kept living it, the way I thought I needed to live it to fit in.
It was too hard to live that way.
It didn't bring me joy.
It didn't bring me healing.
Through therapy and traveling I learned that the sensitivity I otherwise hated and would have traded away for anything else, really was a gift. It's a burden too. Sometimes at least.
But at the end of the day, and right now as I'm writing this, my sensitivity and my way of walking in the world is a gift. Because for this exact moment is has brought me to you. You reading this right now.
Maybe because you're curious, maybe because you're on a similar journey as myself and maybe because you're looking for healing. Either way, I am so WOW-over the moon-amazed that you found your way here.
Being willing to feel better is the biggest fucking step we can take,
and I'm honored to be a part of your journey.
This is the SelfCareSeries.
