Hi I'm summerSHINES *waves*.
I'm an arty type human who shares authentic emotion-saturated writing and doodles about my life with chaotic mental health; to distract myself from said chaos and spread some sunshine for the many trauma survivors among you. I'm someone who survived childhood abuse on unimaginable scales, but I'm nonetheless absolutely determined to post-traumatically shine. When I write about S.H.I.N.I.N.G, I do it in HUGE capital letters; and it's not just because the caps lock on my keyboard got stuck [!] it's because shining amidst adversity is something that absolutely matters to me. The process of writing has built up my confidence and helped me find my voice; a voice that is so polar opposite to the quiet shaky one of my former self. This is an anti childhood-conditioning blog championing rebellion and empowerment.
I pick the words that most accurately describe my emotions without sugar coating or filtering anything out, so please be warned to expect s*h*t loads of swearing, inimitable straight-forwardness, and content that is potentially triggering at times.
I write what I mean and mean what I write.
Love Summer Xx
