“We’re wired for story. In a culture of scarcity and perfectionism, there’s a surprisingly simple reason we want to own, integrate, and share our stories of struggle. We do this because we feel the most alive when we’re connecting with others and being brave with our stories – it’s in our biology.”
Brené Brown


  • When will my submission be posted?
    We cannot guarantee a specific post date. We try to publish articles & artwork from newest to oldest. We greatly appreciate your patience.
  • Why wasn’t my submission posted?
    We are very particular about our format guidelines. It’s likely that it didn’t follow the format we are looking for.
  • Is there anything I should avoid writing about?
    We are always looking for posts that cover everything from mental health to mental illness. However, we do advise that you avoid flat out stating your takeaway message in your post. We also typically reject articles that over generalize/oversimplified advice and/or use phrases such as “fight/squash/destroy the stigma”.
