Note: On Being (the Other Woman)


Can I share a bit of myself with you?

I believe in healing.

Healing of wounds, sours, and painful experiences.

Those that makes you wonder why me?

Do you believe you can be whole again?

I do.

For the rest of my life.

I want to give to things that heal.

— Joel


On being “the other woman.”
Love is not black and white or even shades of gray. It’s love.


You’re not too old
Will I make success in this field, given my late start?


My relationship with being skinny
Is being skinny equals being healthy?


There are plenty of others willing to call you a failure. A fool. A loser. Don’t you ever say it to yourself? You send out the wrong signal, that is what people pick up. Don’t you understand? You care about something you fight for it. There is something you need to about failure. You can never let it defeat you.
