My name is Eva or Amanda or Whatever. Eva is a musician. Amanda is a therapist. And I'm both. This is the first platform where they meet. A mental health blog for music people. I'll start by saying I'm glad you're here. Who doesn't need a positive safe space in this WILD world we live in?! And by "world we live in" I mean all of it. Work life, family life, passion and necessity and the way those things seem to RARELY line up.
That's what I hope to create here: a positive, uplifting, "I hear you I see you" space where feelings are shared and welcomed. I hope this can be a space where sad feelings, mad feelings, triumphs and nasty truths can be met with an internet hug (or real life hug if we ever tour together). I personally think hugs are always a great response. Able to be used in situations of happiness and joy and celebration or grief and guilt and anger. Honestly, hugs are probably more powerful in the latter situations where there just are no words.
So I've given you my name and what I'm doing here. What's your name and how do you feel about hugs?
