A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

'Arte Y Pico Award ' award by Melindaville

Melinda's blog is an excellent example of the meaning of this award. She is a former actress, sex-industry worker, musician and heroin addict who has been in recovery for going on 15 years. Today, she is an online professor of psychology currently writing her memoir, ‘lost & found’, detailing her compelling journey. She is open and gutsy honest about her process of writing and revisiting her past.

'Arte Y Pico Award' is given to five blogs (at a time) based on their creativity, design, interest of content, and contribution to the blogging community, regardless of language. To learn more about this award, click here. Part of the honor of receiving this award is passing along the award to other blogs that speak to my heart. Here are my five recipients of the award and in no particular order.
