    Brown blanket confessions: 4/29

    Brown blanket confessions: 4/29

    “Ugh oh. Taylor’s going through something again.”

    Can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard that one. I think it’s more like nooo Taylor is just tired of sweeping everything under the rug. ALL THE TIME. I’m not a very passive person. If I’m being passive it’s more out of spite or to piss you off. At the end of the day I really don’t put that much energy and effort into things that don’t serve me in some sort of way. I mean what else is a girl to do anyways? Sweeping things under the rug is one of those things. If you keep doing that at some point you’re gonna trip on that rug. It may be small at first and you may steady yourself and keep going. Eventually though, it piles up and you trip and fall on your face. That’s it.

    So I guess if I’m not passive that means naturally I’m aggressive? I mean that has its perks I suppose. It helps me in the aspects of tryna push myself to be a go getter like with my career and networking. It helps me in aspects of love. I can use the energy to push harder from a stamina point, if i allow myself of course. Buuuuuut it can also be my downfall for surrrre. I can rush into things too quickly. I get mouthy and say things I really don’t mean. I can react too harshly instead of taking a moment to breathe. I can get so overwhelmed by all the things I feel at one moment that I breakdown in the worst place and times. It can be scary and it can push people away from me. It can make my heart race so quickly even I fear what’s to come next.

    I think it’s all about balance. Like the libra scales you know? The answer isn’t perfection. It’s balance. Balancing the aggression and the passivity in order to handle things better. Learning to take that breath and then one more with it so maybe I can not keep those tears in longer but understand why their building up in the first place. I mean I’m always gonna be a cry baby! There’s a time and place tho. If anyone knows me you get what I mean by that!

    Anywhosal just another little trip to the realization station from me to you. Wish me luck cuz you know I’m just goin thru it again 😅😭😘

    I Wish Only Good Things For Whoever Created This App

    Thank you.

    Living in a country that has no access to proper health care, least of all mental health care, this app has been a blessing. Just knowing that there are other people who’ve been through what I’ve been through and won’t judge me is a blessing. #TheMighty #TheMightyTakeaway #MentalHealth #scapegoated #raped #gaslightnarcissticabusesurvivor #SexualAbuseSurvivors #ChildhoodTraumaSurvivors #Survivor #Scoliosis #Schwannoma #Schwannomatosis #UterineFibroids #Aspergers #AspergersSyndrome #genius

    My future Mobile Home will be my Mental Health Haven 😌 #Selfcare #Depression #PTSD #MentalHealth

    I am so incredibly thankful to my Heavenly Father for providing my family a new place. Today we were approved for a residential lot and will be living in a mobile abode as first time homeowners. I am so excited that I have not been able to sleep well for the pass three days. I have always had a dream of owning a home mortgage-free. And this is only the beginning. I plan to live here for about five years and then possibly buy a tiny house on wheels to live on the road. Growing up I lived in poverty being raised by a single mother. I truly hated our living situation. I would cry about how ugly our walls were and at our mix match furniture. I would blow out my birthday candles wishing for a new house. I used to live in fear of the mice that we had and the disgusting roaches that would crawl. I used to wonder why our living situation was so different then my family members. But, now that I’m older I realize about my mom having difficulties with alcoholism, gambling and struggles with mental health. I know now why we lived how we did. I’m always reminded of my childhood and how I didn’t want to repeat that lifestyle. This year I finally get to live within that wish. I am going to be living in a modest home happily as a minimalist living debt free. I look forward to sharing my journey to inspire others who strive to live a simple life. I know that mobile homes comes with a negative social-stigma. But we will be living in a beautiful town near highly rated schools which was top priority. I almost slipped into the hoarder lifestyle of my mom until I learned about minimalism. Then I learned about old-fashion simple living. And I am so ecstatic that I will finally be living the life of my dreams. #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder #Disability #TheMightyTakeaway #MightyMoment
