09 tmw we just have a lot of feelings

As our final topic for Find Yourself February, we tackled our emotions.

Feelings make up a large part of who you are, and a part of figuring out who you are includes feeling your emotions and understanding why you feel the way you do.

To use the words of that girl from Mean Girls, we “just have a lot of feelings.”
