WHY I STARTED THIS BLOG: I’m in social work, so it only seemed natural to create a place to just escape from all the negative things I have to deal with. Almost like, an alternate reality of mine, a place where I can be myself and forget about all the sadness of life.
Somehow Social Work followed me in here, so I welcome it. If u need help, advice, counsel, or just an ear to listen, message me. I’m here for you.
*I don’t post any messages on my Tumblr, I answer all of them privately, so be as candid and honest as you want.
I am not a licensed social worker, nor am I a therapist but I’ll do my best to help in any way. Think of me as a friend who will never tell.
Do this on anon if you like, I don’t mind :) NO HATE PLEASE
