    It is not until my adulthood that I began labeling myself as tender of heart. When someone says I am sensitive, I re-frame it and with a smile I say, “Nope…. I am Tender”.
    When we call or label someone sensitive it usually has a negative connotation. There is a stigma; am I wrong?
    I absolutely believe […]

    So I grew up in a Christian home. I have spent most of my life in the hospital. When I found out I had cancer it flipped my world upside down. I got to the point where I was at the lowest of my low. I gave up hope. I got diagnosed with depression, severe […]

  • Hi there Tamryn here

    Who has ever felt that they weren’t good enough ? 
    That they just felt ugly and unworthy? 
    That no matter what they can’t shake those feelings of it being so easy to see why other people like themselves they are actually pretty and I am the utter opposite ? 
    If you said yes to any of these then […]

    I could feel her looking at me as I stared out the window. She asked the question again and I knew I had to respond. “So you don’t think you’re thin enough to have an eating disorder?” I stared at her defiantly as I replied,”No”. But even as I said those words my voice trembled. […]

    People often ask me why I became so passionate about the subjects of bullying prevention and suicide prevention. I tell them that I experienced a tremendous amount of bullying as a child, even into my early teens. Having been born with spina bifida I was often the target of my peers’ vicious taunts. The 1970’s […]

    A man/my boyfriend on and off for about 10 years decided to lose his mind one night. While he was always emotionally abusive, he had never been physically abusive, until this one long night. It started off like a normal evening when he got upset about something that he thought I had done. He was […]

    Self-worth was a concept that for the majority of my 21 years on this planet, I never thought applied to me personally. This might surprise you if you knew me or my family in person, because from the outside, I’ve always had the perfect life. I grew up in a middle-class Christian family, with a mother and […]

    “I grew up in Sydney, Australia and went to an all-girls private school on the north shore. Looking back at my time in high school, I was just an ordinary girl, who didn’t know who she was. I placed my worth in the number of friends I had, boys, how I looked like and made […]
