Indeed they are! I’m very proud of myself for FINALLY being able to set good boundaries at this time with others. I can state my intentions with an individual and be firm with my boundaries…and stick to my gut! I’m really excited to be able to breathe, live my life, and be honest to others about how I may feel about them. I know I need this time in my life ALONE to really focus on my career, myself, and my own passions and interests. It’s pretty damn refreshing to not want or need anyone at this point in my life. I have heard that the greatest lovestory is the one where you fall in love with yourself. Slowly but surely I am beginning to live this story out. Others may want or need me, but I hold them at a safe distance and a firm boundary to take care of myself–my own feelings and desires. My only feelings and desires at this time are to better my own life myself :). I’ve been really relying on the phrase “que sera sera” and doing my best to give my worries about the future up to the universe and to trust that all will work out as it is meant to!

Hello, my name is Marie. I am a 20-something who wants to heal her emotional wounds and help her clients to heal as well. I am a clinical social worker (almost fully-licensed LCSW!) who deeply cares about my clients. I try to use my own life lessons, trials, and tribulations to better help myself and others. I pride myself in presenting to my clients as "more-human-than-most" and often let them know that I am a work in progress as well. I attribute my vast collection of self-help books on my book shelf not only to my clients' "presenting problems" but also my own. I have attempted to create 2 blogs recently on a different site and found myself feeling frustrated and expressing negativity and anger (this was leading up to my breakup). Now that I am in a different place, I aim to keep this blog positive, but real, as I share with you my journey toward healing my body, mind, and spirit--and finding myself somewhere along the way. I will be sharing my favorite resources, quotes, and pictures that are helping me through this difficult time. My hope is that you will find some healing from this blog and from my experiences.
