Hello! I’m Lena. Welcome to my writing website and higher calling—to carry the message of hope, healing, and recovery. I was a depressed, lost soul, and through the help of others, I found a new model of living that has profoundly changed my life for the better. I am indebted to those who guided me and were driven to pay it forward. The purpose of this space is to encourage others to look within, to help those suffering from loneliness, restlessness, and discontent, and to aid those struggling with anxiety, anger, fear, depression, addiction, trauma, mental illness, and suicidal ideation. I believe that when we honestly look at our behaviors, thoughts, feelings, and belief systems—and work with them—we can alleviate the causes of our suffering and bring joy and happiness.


Anger Means I’m Passionate

When I’m angry about something, I care enough about that topic to let it affect me emotionally. If you care that much about something, you probably have an opinion. And that makes for compelling debate with whomever I have victimized. We all recognize passion as an event, person, or object that creates a powerful and driving emotion in us. I am passionate about my family, work, writing my books, and talking about topics that make people uncomfortable. Many people are passionate about injustices in the world (including me). When we see something happen that we disagree with concerning one of these events, people, or objects, that incites anger. The best time for me to write is when I’m angry and having racing thoughts causes anger inside me that I must get out of my head or else I will rip off someone’s head, or even worse, I text them. I will text an essay and send it to you. For instance, when my husband makes me take medication, I get angry. Why? I love texting and writing, which scares him and everyone. On a broader scale, if you are angry that American inequality is higher now than ever since WWII (and, like, forever), that means you’re passionate about it. To talk about mental health issues, it’s vital that you identify what you’re struggling with. Being open about mental health is good and allows conversations to develop naturally. And, writer friends, you should share your thoughts with the world. Passionate people are more likely to influence the views and opinions of other people. So, I am passionate about this cause; I want to change the world through my words. If you are passionate about something, you’re missing the opportunity to change the world if you don’t put your passion into words. Yes, anger is different from passion, but they often appear together. I can bang out a passionate first draft for my book when I’m angry; I can revise my words later (but I will likely keep the passion in my writing even after I edit.) I don’t know if I’ve ever experienced a nonchalant angry person. I don’t quite know if that’s possible. Then God gave me David, aka my husband.
