I certainly have complaints about our mental health system, but today I forgot to notice when one of the psychiatrists I work with said, "WE WORK WITH THE PEOPLE NO ONE WANTS." That knocked me over. I've never put it quite that way before. It can be difficult to make work an "I want you to thrive" sincerity while navigating through a system that forgets what it is that happens on the front lines. And many on the front lines compromise their own ethics as well. For those of us in the mental health field, remember why the people we serve are often unwanted. For those of you outside of it, know that there's plenty to want.
I believe story telling is an art form and blogging is a medium in which to share stories and ideas. Within this blog I hope to cover a spectrum of topics. From the serious to the silly. Here you will read my views and inquiries about subjects such as feminism, other various socio-political issues, psychology, spirituality, sexuality, and general interests such as film, art and music. You will also be exposed to my obsession with cupcakes, tea, books, Hello Kitty, and quirky day to day journeys. I enjoy learning from others as I am constantly attempting to introspect, grow and evolve. During this process I will be jotting down musings on this blog. Pull up a comfy chair and a spot of tea and join me!
