Expressing My Needs

One of the biggest things I have always struggled with in terms of mental health is not asking for/stating what I need. I, like all human beings, can be selfish, but I don’t like to. I am easily prone to guilt and pressure. The end result is I rarely am honest about what I need […]

Expressing My Gratitude

As you have probably noticed self improvement has become a reoccurring theme with many of my blog posts. To that end, another aspect I need to work on is expressing my gratitude. Due in no small part of my own negative tendencies, I rarely actually get around to showing how grateful I am. One incident […]

Dead Brain Days

I don’t know if anyone else has experienced this, but lately I’ve been getting a lot of what I term “dead brain days”. I find it impossible to write because I lack inspiration or motivation. I find little enjoyment in things that I normally like. It’s hard for me to talk to people because I […]

Better with Age

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog piece about dreading the fact that I am turning 30 this summer and how the number one thing I need to change is my perception on this event. That like many things, my own negativity, is what is holding me back and so I need to attempt […]

As some of you may or may not know I am turning 30 this year. In fact a lot of people probably don’t know because I make it a point to avoid saying the age 30 as much as possible. In fact even as I am writing this I am getting anxious and upset about […]

The Trouble with Giving Advice

Let me preface this blog by saying that I am in no way discouraging people from talking to others about mental illness, or even giving advice. Please read the full thing and take it for what it is rather than assuming. On to the blog I have noticed lately a large number of people on […]

Megan Rants: Trashing on Self Publishing

Recently in a fit of irony HuffPost put out an article demeaning author’s that self publish. I am going to lay out some things before giving my response. The first is that I could not finish the piece, it was rude, ill informed, and like most of what comes from that site… complete crap. Second, […]
