Rose Colored Glasses

I want to become an advocate for abuse and mental illness. For me to that, I feel that this needs to be done to the best of my ability. So here is my story. My Me Too. My dark places and my escapes. My success and my struggles.

Chapter 1

Introduction And Memories, Or The Lack Of

They say the things about rose colored glasses, is that all flags just look like flags. I have found this personally found this to be true. The cynic in me says, that love is a chemical reaction in your brain, and that I should have known better. I completely agree with the cynic. The optimist in me says there is no way that I could have known, and that we can’t control the chemical reactions in our brains. The optimist raises an excellent point.

Dopamine, Seratonin, and Oxytocin are the chemicals put together to create love. Dopamine makes you happy, Seratonin creates the feeling of well being, and is a kind of neurotransmitter. It also helps with feelings of reward, learning, memory, and more. Oxytocin aids in social bonding. All these things can make anyone throw on some rose colored glasses, I have learned,

Abuse and toxicity is not taboo. It is not uncommon. Abuse and toxicity can happen within anyone’s lives and in any kind of relationship; intimate or platonic.

It needs to be talked about. It needs to be spoken of out loud and without fear, shame, or repercussions. The fact that needs to said, fills me with so much pain and empathy.

This, is my story. The best I can remember.
