By obsessively documenting my emotions, I wasn’t really feeling them.
Insight without character limits and word counts.
Between the lines of my teenage diaries.
How to recognize and address this type of manipulation.
The sixth and final part in a series.
Let your writing shimmer and shine.
I don’t really know who I am yet, and that’s fine.
Even if you move around a lot, you can feel perfectly settled.
My feelings are valid!
Take note-passing to a whole new level.
