Welcome to the blog

Welcome to the “We Got This Blog.” I am so blessed that you are here with me as a part of this beautiful community. The death of my father three years ago, at just 14 years old, broke me, but through writing, I was able to start to heal. My journey has not been easy, and many days I still unravel or fall apart, but I am alive. I am here. And guess what? You are too.

It Isn’t Always Wanted: “Grief Phrases”

I’ve had some time to reflect since those beginning days. I didn’t always love my actions or my quietness or the way I kept most of the pain sheltered from those closest to me. I ate too much, I didn’t sleep enough, I walked around fine when I felt so far from it. I said…

Why Did I Start a Blog?

I have always loved to write, even as a little girl. When my father first passed in 2019, my mother suggested that I journal as a way to help process my grief and soon, it became my safe space. I knew that I had the power to help those out there who were dealing with the loss of a loved one and even those who were dealing with their own mental health issues. After my father’s suicide, I had come to the conclusion that I never wanted anyone else out there to struggle, to feel lonely, or to hide behind smiles or jokes. Everyone’s life matters and is worth living; I can promise you that.
