We’re forced to compare ourselves to the glamorized lives of social media when really, we need the truth. We need to believe in the struggles that lead to triumph. The sense of confusion we can find in others, and the misguided path that leads us through life. We need to address the truth behind the twenties. The things we overcome,  the perspectives we gain, and the inner daemons we’re forced to face.

Be apart of the journey to raise awareness about the stigma of a less than perfect mind.

I’m a twenty-three year old girl, writing about the struggles of my love life, self-discovery and bottomless mind. This blog is for the times your inner voice becomes unbearable. When no one understands what you’re going through and no one tries. A blog for the times you search chat rooms and books, desperate to find reassurance that you’re not alone. The times you’ve shared your deepest, loneliest feelings and no one took your hand, and said me too.

Sometimes our families don’t understand, our friends don’t have time and our voice shakes too much to turn thoughts into words. We try to make sense of the world while we try to make sense of ourselves and that’s an impossible thing to do alone.

  1. Thank goodness you started the road to self-discovery early!!! In my twenties I had some reflections, but was not nearly bold enough to actually write about it and share it with the world! Not until my late 20’s anyway… You are doing a great job here! Keep expressing, keep putting your heart into your writing, and that book that you want to write – it’s coming. You are building the steps to it right now! Good luck and blessings in all that you do!

  2. OMG!! I’ve fallen in love with your blog…with the thoughts that you have expressed. Everything Im feeling…as if you’ve reading my journals but just placing everything perfectly in words on your blog. I am truly in love!!!

    • Thank you so much! That was an amazing – and encouraging – comment to read. It’s given me a lot of closure to find people who can relate so I hope reading my blog can give the same to you. I hope to hear from you on future posts.

  3. It takes courage to tread on the path of self-discovery,I am in my twenties and know that refraining oneself from delusions is difficult,but once you put your foot down many blurred aspects become clear. Best of luck .Thank you for liking my post. I am looking forward to hear from you. :)

    • “Refraining oneself from delusions” I absolutely love this! It speaks so much truth. Thank you for sharing such a positive message. It’s comforting to find others in their twenties who are finding their own ways to make it through these confusing years. Best of luck on your own journey but I hope to hear from you again!

  4. A truly inspirational blog. I have spent a while reading some of your posts. I hope you continue on your path of self-discovery. I have found that the more you find out the more there is to find out. There should be no upper age limit on self-discovery – I am still striving to know more and understand more and I am 56 years old. There will always be challenges but with an open mind, a willingness to learn and with a little self-knowledge those challenges are not insurmountable. All this will help you in understanding others too. Thank-you so much for visiting my blog and liking my post.

  5. You are very brave to blog about your inner thoughts. It is not always an easy thing to do, but I fully believe that communicating those thoughts to others is an important process. I have suffered through bouts of depression, anxiety, and definitely stress by not having anyone I can really talk to, but I didn’t even realize that there was something wrong with me until I met that person that I could share these thoughts with. Now, I realize that I was merely a shadow of my true self until I started to let my inner thoughts and feelings out. I am glad you decided to like one of my posts on my blog otherwise I never would have discovered yours. Keep up the great work for it will not only help you, but it will help others too.

    • Thank you so much for sharing your own story! Suffering in silence truly seems like the worst thing a person could do and I think that’s why art is such a dominant and important aspect of life. We have to turn the chaos of our mind into something that makes the suffering have worth. Again, I thank you for sharing and I hope you’ve found your blog to be a great way to help yourself and others as well :)

  6. I cannot wait to delve into your blog. Thank you for stopping by mine & taking the time to read. You are amazing and brave to put it all out there. Know that you have already helped someone just by sharing yourself.

    • Than you so much for checking out my blog and taking the time to comment. You are brave as well for sharing your writing with everyone! Keep up the great work and thank you so much for the support.

  7. Oh my Gosh, I love your blog. I’m also 23 and I can totally relate.

    I still feel like I have more questions about life than answers to be honest. Keep doing what you are doing.
