This week was so EXHAUSTING for me for some reason! I fell behind on my paperwork (about to do some of that now), my stomach was funky, and I was just totally exhausted. Tonight I miss him. I hung out with a friend for a little after work to unwind after my long and tiring day today. All my clients showed today and I received a lot of phone calls in between sessions…a lot of needs to be met by me out there today :/. I’m just physically tired and want what I had with him…minus the questioning of my intelligence/master’s-level education/occupation/alma mater/emotional stability (really, though?), threat of someone who is “better” (credentials) to come along, and the appropriate ongoing depression as a result. I’m not a victim here. I really should have stood up for myself more and let my true self shine more as well. Now, I tell things like they are and express how I feel. I clearly state when I’m feeling uncomfortable and if the other person doesn’t change their behavior, I leave. ok I’m super tired now…goodnight!

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.
