Balancing The Dark With The Light

Growing up in an abusive situation made me a little cynical and dark… sometimes. My mind automatically goes to the worst possible case scenario. I am an optimistic pessimist who pushes through everyday just to help out the next person. We never know when our extra push could save someone! This life is more than just our personal feelings and emotions. If I let my emotions lead me, I would never make it. I have heard countless times that your emotions can pick you up and drop you off at a place you never meant to be. Be careful that they don’t lead you down a path from which you can’t recover.


I apologize for my absence Monday. I’ve has A LOT of changes recently and I’m trying to cope with it all. For as long as I can help out I will continue my blog. This has been a struggle for me and I’m trying to still be me, even when people are against me.

Hello I'm Mariah Eskridge and my goal is to encourage those who otherwise wouldn't have the support. I graduated from Illinois State University in May 2019 with a Bachelors Degree in Marketing and Accounting. I've been faced with plenty of situations that I would've loved having someone that I can relate to.
