My Inner Baby

February 28, 2019

About two weeks ago, I discussed with my therapist about my feelings of loneliness and how I automatically translate my loneliness to people not caring about me, then me not wanting to care about myself.

“I don’t really care who you are, what your relationship is to me…I just need you to get out.” This words left Martha’s mouth with so much hate and venom I wanted to push my chair back a bit. They were directed at her son, Timothy, who had just told his conservative Christian mom that […]

A painting of a naked woman holding something like a rope above her.

When I started graduate school for my MSW, I remember thinking that it was time for me to change in myriad ways. The jig was up!
