Social Media and Me, and Me, and Me.

I am not the biggest fan of the depersonalization that I go through as a byproduct of my anxiety. I often feel like I’m watching my life play out in front of me as if I’m not an active participant in it. I can become so distinctly separate from my own life that the ideaContinue reading “Social Media and Me, and Me, and Me.”

Self Defense, Slow Dancing, and Junior High
