My Anxiety Monster

For some reason I thought I’ve talked about anxiety on here before, but apparently I can’t find it. So if that’s the case, we’re going to talk about anxiety today.  Back at the end of 2017 into 2018 I struggled with a lot of anxiety. Anxiety was never something I’d really dealt with before and [...]

Thank you for unanswered prayers

Back in college there was a man I thought I wanted to marry. This past weekend, he married someone else. Lord.
