About

Welcome to my blog, I’m so glad you came! I created this site for people like me: for those who love beauty but have trouble loving themselves; for those who wish for something beyond themselves but sometimes feel trapped in their own bodies; and for those who have grown tired of trite responses to the lived experience of suffering. Specifically, it’s a blog documenting my own religious experiences—including my recent conversion to Catholicism—alongside my day-to-day living with a certain emotional and psychological temperament that can best be described as masochistic. I certainly do not intend intend to present this blog—or Catholicism!—as a treatment for psychological disorders. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, and/or self-harm and have not yet sought help, please check out some of the wonderful resources available from the mental health community. However, I do think that my experiences with anxiety, depression, and self-harm influence my understanding of Catholicism and, conversely, my Catholicism affects how I understand those experiences, and I hope to trace some of those connections and influences within this blog.

A good intro to me and my journey to Catholicism can be found in my inaugural post, Broken Wholeness. 

For reasons that I imagine are rather obvious, I choose to keep this blog anonymous. However, I welcome feedback either within the comment section or by email at catholicismforcutters@gmail.com.
