Last week, I wrote about God. And Self Worth. And Why trying to prove your worth is pointless.  After the post went live, I started freaking the fuck out. It felt like my heart had been put on a platter for the whole world to stare at. To poke. To slice. Dice. And puree into something unrecognizable. See, I've been on a journey with God my whole life. I can remember feeling Divinely connected and feeling a certain level of dissonance with this whole human thing. I came into this human experience knowing that I was a Divine Expression of God. I didn't think I was special in that way, I just Continue Reading

On God. Self Worth. And why trying to prove your worth is pointless.
