Vulnerability

Vulnerability— • The thirteen letter state one enters when exposing their most inner, rawest emotions • This weekend I did myself a favor and watched Demi Lovato's documentary: Simply Complicated.

Depression & Him

Depression & Him— • The thirteen letter combination that destroyed me • He was my saving grace. That fresh breath of air after drowning underwater. That pull off the ledge of a twenty story building.

Social Media

Social Media— • An eleven letter phrase describing the use of social networking through the sharing of thoughts, pictures and messages • A night out in the city can't seem to begin until a worthy enough picture is captured and posted.

Strength

Strength— • An eight letter word describing one's ability to endure tough times optimistically while overcoming setbacks and hardships • The type of strength I'm focusing on here cannot be seen with the visible eye.
