Getting to know me better!

Since my About page is pretty sparse,I thought I’d let you guys know a little bit about me. Besides, we could be hella awesome friends, right? My name is Violet Petals. I’m going through the process of getting my Gen Ed for a 2 year English degree, and will hopefully continue on to achieve higher education. I love writing, animals, and gloomy weather (with loooots of rain!). I have “Lusty Lavender” hair according to Splat and spend time admiring my little Loaches. If you’ve never seen them, look them up! They look like teeny tiny little eels with mustaches; even without a top hat they already look dapper. I only have a few close friends. During and after high school my circle of friends nearly disintegrated. I’m trying to navigate through the spiritual waters of Wicca- it’s something I’m very much interested in and I totally welcome and appreciate any stories/questions/pretty much anything on that subject. As mentioned in my About page, I’ve struggled with self-harm and continue to deal with Depression and Anxiety daily. These are topics that are dear to my heart, and one day I’m sure I’ll dedicate a few posts to my story and my visit in a mental hospital. And if any of you that are reading this are going through any of these things:


Hell, eventually, it will be more than okay.

If you’re looking for a sign of strength, a sign to keep going, this is it.

I’m writing this now for you, and the beautiful life you will live if you keep holding on.

It’s so fucking hard, but I swear loves, it gets easier and better and one day you’ll wake up and realize it was all worth it. Every pain was worth all the moments filled with peace and happiness.

Damnit, YOU are worth it.

Sending you much love and positive thoughts.

  1. When you are deep within the pit, it is often difficult to climb back out. I know. I’ve been there. Since you talked a little about yourself, let me tell you a tiny bit about me. In 2002 I became disabled and was in so much pain that for over two years I was on a narcotic roller coaster to find something just to take the edge off. I couldn’t walk more than a few steps unaided, standing and sitting were excruciating. The only relief I could get, and it really wasn’t much, came only if I were laying down. While I had previously struggled on and off with mild depression throughout my life, at this time I went into a chronic depression and stayed there almost two years. It has been a difficult journey back but the one thing that helped me significantly was when I started blogging back at the end of 2012. For the first time in a long time, I had purpose once again. I am also happy to say that my pain is much more manageable, although something that I still struggle with on a daily basis, and I believe that also has a tremendous effect on keeping me ‘sane’.

    As you say, ‘the key is holding on’. Even if it is with your fingertips. One must hold out hope that things will get better. Good luck in continuing to hold on!


    • Lisa, thank you for being so open and telling your story. That sounds really rough. I’m so glad you’re on your way to feeling better though, that’s amazing! I agree, even though blogging might seem trivial to a lot of people it truly does help the soul blossom. It’s good to hear stories of strength like yours that remind me that it’s never the end until the end, if you understand what I’m saying. I think somewhere on the Internet there’s a quote about never giving up because you never know when the tide will turn in your favor and change everything. Congrats on finding a little piece of happiness for yourself 🙂

  2. I really like your blog and writing style. I think if more people read stories of success and determination and hope, there would be more peace in the world and courage in the heart. Kudos to you!
