Reflections of a former people-pleaser

Quotation-Dante-Alighieri-journey-Meetville-Quotes-143947 (1)Hemingway once said, “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”

So here I am, bearing everything to you dear reader. I will pour out my guts and insides to you if at least you will take away from my posts just one life lesson. If all you take away is this, then I will consider my job over and done with.

Whatever you do…

Don’t live your life to please other…

One truth about therapy.
