Peso del Mare offers a space for readers to take a new step in understanding and acknowledging the complexities of human experiences. Many people have weight and not that many talk about it. We encourage discussions to combat stigma around normalcies that are unknowingly shared and offer an opportunity to carry this weight as beauty.


From Founder & Editor Tiana Petrullo.


Peso is a meaningful project to me and Transparency even more so. By becoming self aware of my own mental health within the past couple of years, everything has changed. Being able to acknowledge the realities of my depression, anxiety, and PTSD and find a logical explanation for my symptoms has allowed me to stop fighting my natural tendencies and start healing. Once I began to verbally express what I deal with daily in conversations with others, I found that I was nowhere near alone. Although it is not entirely comfortable for me to be putting my thoughts and feelings in public in this way, I think that it is most important to verbalize mental health experiences. I have been able to connect to every single story written for Transparency and I hope that you can either find similar connections or learn something new on the topic of mental health.

I endlessly thank all contributors for putting their walls down with me. The start of this community has already become more than I had imagined.

More about me.
