How it Started

I believe that honesty is truly the best policy. For too long I have lived in a world where the value of honesty has diminished. Anyone can say whatever they want at any time, so why wouldn't you share the truth?

The idea for Honest Breakdown came to me in the midst of a tragedy. I started to feel things that I didn't know I could feel. I was enveloped in a darkness that seemed ongoing. As I started to write down my thoughts and feelings in the midst of this traumatic experience, I realized that I was ashamed to share how I was feeling with anyone. 

It occurred to me that people are rarely honest with others about the most difficult things. We feel like no one understands what we are going through, so we hide our true feelings to make others comfortable. I am here to say that life is not comfortable, and the goal of Honest Breakdown is to empower honesty, even in the middle of the darkest valley.
