Nothing Ventured…nothing gained….right???

I’ve always been a sensitive soul prone to deep thoughts and feelings. Often the thoughts overwhelm and I need to get them out. I’ve gotten into the habit of posting them on social media which is often to the concern and consternation of those closest to me. I’m someone who can see all sides of a situation, no matter how difficult. That ability to empathize has served me well in my professional life as well as with friends/family but I’m not sure how great it’s been for me personally. I’m a single woman at 45. A woman who has always dreamed of children but never had any….who has always imagined love and partnership but has been let down more than once. I’m blessed with an incredibly close family and many life long friends but spend my day to day life mostly alone. I’ve always been told that I’m a gifted writer and that I should do something with my words….after a long time of doing nothing with my thoughts and words I’ve decided to give this a try. Maybe it will go nowhere, maybe I have no idea what I’m doing (that feels like a strong possibility), or maybe I’ll reach other people like me who need to know they aren’t alone. All I know is I have to give it a try. If I reach just one person then I will feel like it was a worthwhile endeavor.

I was born and raised in Western NY. I’m college educated with a 20+ year career in Human Services/Mental Health. I currently work in Suicide Prevention/Crisis Intervention. I’m close to my family, love music, books, seeing new places, and being anywhere near water. I’m a deep thinker, have a big heart, and believe this world could use more kindness and common sense.
