Gwendolyn, Eastern Coast. Blogging since 2010. Old posts aren't deleted ― there’s a reason why they were posted; whether they are relevant or no longer relevant, they will remain a part of who I am. So here are my flaws, wounds and failures, my passions, triumphs, and victories for the world to see -- I'm giving my secrets away in hope to inspire others. "I do not own any of the photos posted unless stated otherwise"* – enjoy, xoxo –
"The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human.
Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around—and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being.
The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness."
