TGTIF. So it’s been a weird and difficult week for me so far. Thank goodness it’s almost over. I’m sorry, mindfulness skills, but I really need this week to be done with! It’s been rather draining and I took a mental health day today because I’m feeling anxious and overwhelmed at work and at home…especially at work! I don’t really want to go into details, but there has been some good and some bad things going on with me personally this week. This too shall pass! I handled myself well in some situations but not well in others and I’m just trying to figure out what is the right path and what are the right decisions for me! I learned in my therapy session today how difficult of a time I have sticking to boundaries that I set for myself and others. I am a work in progress and progress I shall make! I’m going to actually set an example right now by setting a boundary and saying goodbye, so that I can do what is on my to-do list for tonight. Goodnight! 🙂 Time to get to work!

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.
