Mentality

The various moments in my life, along with advice, motivations and fashionable perspectives. 

 Cleric - Yukijoro

Inspired by my academic pursuit and personal roots with psychology, mental health, and healing Yukijoro is the second facet I named. The myth of the fantasy creature/spirit and ice deity spoke to me when I read about, "the woman who died in winter". After experiencing and overcoming some of severe trials of my own, I often felt like I was trapped in ice, looking towards a positive and beautiful world. So the frozen healer holding a mirror is one of my perceptions of self. My stronger, but perhaps melancholic, muse helped me through loneliness and isolation by reshaping my writing voice and emotive style. The focus of my writing style under the influence of my inner muse yukijoro is "mentality" and the overall reflection of the emotions that lie deep within. My hope is to process the life lived and the life I hold now. Of all my writing voices, this is the most true to the me now, I am still the woman who is healing from her winter. This facet has the most presence on my blog, as she is the one reflecting on my journey and experiences. 

You can catch this guide on my main blog sharing my wisdom, experiences, and reflections.

If I wrote a monologue on the troubles of proclaiming toxicity and ghosting friends I would end it shouting “Communicate to me better than old R&B love songs.” When I reflect on friendships past, I think about what went wrong, and the solid unifying theme is COMMUNICATION.

Chapter 34: Burnout or Turnout

“I work under the assumption that I’m not good enough, and if I don’t do more, I won’t get anywhere in life. It’s a nagging feeling that I’m failing at where I am supposed to be in life. What does 24 on the cusp of 25 looks like for a Black Femme with an unused bachelors look like?”
