A Piece From My Heart – Discrimination Or Not?


Discrimination?   Really, Teresa, don’t you think you are being just a bit melodramatic?”  That is the question I have been asking myself for quite a few months now, questioning the feelings going on inside my head as I write this special piece from my heart.  However, I feel I am closer to the realization that, yes, discrimination is playing a role in my life right now.

If you have read my bio or maybe another one of my articles, you have seen that I am a caucasian woman who grew up in the midwest in a conservative,  middle class family.  We lived in a nice neighborhood and I attended a predominately white elementary, middle and high school.

I got married, had children and was fortunate enough to stay home and do the “Mom” thing full time most of their formative years.  Life, was good, it was really good and for the most part, although different than then, remains to be good.

I was given the opportunity to go back to school and start a brand new career back in 2005, launched into the dental field and absolutely loved all aspects of it.  I began as a Dental Assistant, which I did for many years then, as the progression normally goes, transitioned into Office Management expanding my knowledge and spreading my dental wings.”

In her spare time she likes to get outside and take advantage of the beautiful Pacific Northwest summers and experiencing new adventures with her boyfriend of 5 1/2 years. She is an admitted football fanatic and loves the excitement of participating in Fantasy Football with her sons, boyfriend, family and friends from the Pacific Northwest, Florida and Indiana! The only work she have had published, is a poem published in Creativity Magazine when she was in the 8th grade. She has always enjoyed writing, however it wasn’t until encouraged by a professor and a few friends that she realized writing just might be the “Gift” God gave her. Teresa is preparing her Freelance/Content Writing Services for Launch in February 2017. Services are available for businesses and corporations of all sizes and also to those Bloggers wanting to enhance their own content for readers. Her ultimate goal is to have a book published based on personal experiences in her own life and hopes it is not only entertaining and engaging, but might also help some reader, somewhere, somehow.

  1. I understand how you feel, Teresa. My husband and I experienced several setbacks like that within the last couple of years. It is hard when you are of a certain age to get a job. Ageism does exist. It is unfortunate but true. I will keep you in my thoughts.
