Self-loathing and cathartic release through writing

It’s Monday afternoon as I type this and today, I’m feeling a little muted and tired. I’ve been writing a lot this past week and am almost finished part three of my series. It’s getting to the fun part now. The hard parts of the trauma dumping have been written. Now I just write complete…

Unpopular opinions: cancel culture

How to know if you’re being “gaslighted”
