Albatross Conundrum

I'm a lady, 23 years of age in Midwestern U.S.

I enjoy the company of animals, books, music, and the wonderful people I've encountered so far in my life.

Currently working toward the dream of being a librarian in the Pacific Northwest. We'll see how that goes.

Talk to me. I'll respond with fervent eagerness.

I think a huge mistake we make is not allowing ourselves to feel. Whenever I’m driving in my car and a memory pops into my head that forms a lump in my throat my first instinct is to immediately shut it away. But I try to force myself to feel it, the loss. I let myself cry and slam my fists into the steering wheel because I know my mind needs my body. Sometimes the spaces in our head aren’t big enough for the pain we feel and it’s our bodies job to set it free.
