When he gaslights you or denies, use your voice. Your strong words. I’ve learned to. “Widow.” My poem before it was Rani’s. It still makes me cry at the end (that part’s on my YouTube  full version- https://youtu.be/k9TW2FD_Y50 #ranipatelinfulleffect #hiphop #rap #slampoetry #poetry #rhymes #molokai #hawaii #yanovels #whyiwrite #intersectionalfeminism #feminist #lgbtq #woc #gujarati #indianamerican #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness

Tough week but I love my job. I’m grateful for it. It’s why I will never write what’s going to be mainstream popular. I will write the pain I hear in my office. The pain I have lived. #childandadolescentpsychiatrist #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #diversityindiversity #lgbtq #gujarati #indianamerican #whyiwrite #yanovels #hiphop #rap #intersectionalfeminism #feminism

Nameste, Bitches. 🙏🏽 But seriously, I’ve been meaning to give a shout out to @hotyoga8 for awhile now. See I’ve been on a personal yoga journey for over 10 years at this awesome studio with the best teachers and I’m grateful. Cuz for me, hot yoga is not about body, weight, or competition with myself or others. Nope. It’s about quieting my anxious brain. Being in the moment. Letting go of attachments. Taking care of myself so I can take care of others. Practicing what I preach to my patients. Most importantly, it’s a way I can connect with my deceased maternal grandfather for whom yoga was a personal way of life.

#Grateful to @dbinks for these wise words. Ya’ll know I’m passionate about writing real, raw, imperfect young adult characters because that’s how teens really present to me in the office and that’s how I once was. Some people HATED Rani, Jaya, & Rasa because of the thoughts, feelings, and actions these teens displayed. But that’s like saying I HATE YOU because you’ve been through trauma and you don’t make perfect decisions yet. I REFUSE TO WRITE “GOOD,” “PERFECT,” or FLUFFY, FEEL-GOOD” characters. #childandadolescentpsychiatrist #truth #whyiwrite #yanovels #keepingitreal #hiphop #feminism #intersectionalfeminism #lgbtq
