Ugh tonight I felt restless and achy from working out too much and too hard today. I also have this really annoying habit of picking all of the scabs on my legs so they never heal. It’s like compulsive and satisfying. I feel like I do a lot of things that are compulsive and satisfying in the short-term but I regret doing so in the long-term. I think this skin-picking thing will resolve when I am able to resolve the source of the anxiety behind it. I’m at my parents’ house tonight due to the snowstorm and my town’s silly street parking rules. I’m actually super tired but I had a lot more to talk about, so I will write at a later time.

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.
