It Doesnt Control Me.

When I first went on medication for Epilepsy, it wasn’t just a part of my life. I let it define who I was. I was overcome with depression and I blocked everyone out. When I let Epilepsy take over, I let it dissolve friendships, and harden my heart towards people who loved me. Through EEG’s…

Bad Company Ruins Good Morals

1 Corinthians 15:33 Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” We don’t always like to admit it, but we tend to follow in the steps of those closest to us. I started saying a certain phrase when I got to college. “ it’s fine, it’s fine, it’s all fine” and now all my…

Are They a Good Friend?

I’ve struggled with this for as long as I can remember. I get so wrapped up in a friendship that even when it becomes toxic and destructive I can convince myself it is worth being saved. I know people who have emotionally abusive friends but refuse to leave their side. I was in a relationship like…
