Tell It Like It Is

I am absolutely the last person you should ask for advice if you don’t want a genuine answer. I will not tell you what you want to hear, I will tell you what you need to hear. As I’ve grown into the person I am today, I’ve experience heartbreak, toxic relationships, disloyalty, abandonment, pain, anxiety, and a sadness so great that you feel like you’re drowning. Throughout all these things, I was lucky enough to have people around me that would tell it like it was. People would give me their sugarcoated bullshit, and that’s not what I needed. My world was crashing down around me; I needed truth. Stone cold facts that would give me a steady ground to walk on, because I was walking on the teetering edge of wellness and insanity.

So, if you ask me for advice, I will tell you the truth. I will call it as I see it and I will say what must be said. I tend to come off blunt or rude, which is never my intention. But I do it because I care. I do it because that’s what I needed when I was falling apart, and I want to be able to help someone put themselves back together if they need it. I am the furthest thing from a psychologist, though I plan to be one day, but I now how to tell the truth, and I know how to empathize and understand what another person is going through.

So if you ask me for advice, I will wholeheartedly try and do my best to help you. I care about people, I genuinely do. If you’re having a hard time, I really do get it. So if you need me, ever, I will be there every time.
