Perpetuating unkindness

Critical Mental Health Nurses' Network

Dear fellow bloggers,

When I was a little girl I dreamed about having pen pals in faraway places. I imagined there was someone living in another country who thought about things the way I did and who had experienced some of the same things I had experienced.  Unfortunately, it never happened. There were too many other things going on in our household to make finding a pen pal a priority.

Fast forward many years later to the age of the internet, and here I am living out my childhood fantasy. I am so grateful to have a place to do what I love the most, writing, and  to connect with others with the same passion.

I have met so many interesting, soulful people from all corners of the world since starting this blog. My blog got off to a painfully slow start, and there were many times I wasn’t…
