I’ve been judged, unfollowed, talked about, and even asked in disbelief, why I raise mental health awareness. Why I would risk my career/brand by openly posting about my struggles with depression, namely bipolar type II disorder… THIS IS EXACTLY WHY! Depression is an isolating disease all its own so why should someone be expected to sink further into seclusion, out of fear of stigma and shame. When I was in hiding and unaware of my disease, I became a binge drinker and pill popper… at the same damn time. Surprised much? Then stop judging and start giving a fuck about folks. ASK the tough questions, insert yourself into the life of someone who’s always shutting you out, or themselves in. Sharing has kept me ALIVE BITCHES and I will continue to raise awareness, don’t give a bang who don’t like it. SHARING/ASKING SAVES LIVES! RIP Mr. Williams, you made the world laugh, while your sorrow consumed you - something only an earthbound Angel could do. #bitchslappingthestigma #bstswithTAVY #depression #depressionhurts #depressionawareness #bipo #mentalhealthawareness #fightthedarkness #silentillness #silentdisease #rip #robinwilliams

If YOUR truth frees YOU, who gives a bang who it doesn’t flatter. We own our experiences, NOT the transgressions of another. Can’t forgive what hasn’t been exposed… especially if you’re still being held emotionally hostage by the bullshit. So NO, I will no longer subscribe to your brand of poison. I will NO LONGER write, share or love through a custom muzzle. Fuck being polite when you’re under attack - it’s usually the “entitled” who assassinate you. Fighting back, telling YOUR truth, it doesn’t mean you hate them, it simply means YOU love YOU, and they weren’t ready. #GAMEOVER

As delicate as flesh, yet just as strong as bone. 


Scraped, bruised, and broken - we heal, we mend. 


Our love inspires the torn heart to regenerate.


Mind your posture ladies, our nation’s daughters are simulating.

"I’m friends with the monster that’s under my bed
Get along with the voices inside of my head
You’re trying to save me, stop holding your breath
And you think I’m crazy, yeah, you think I’m crazy

Well, that’s nothing”
