Therapy, Tumblr’d

Charlene Corpus, a 35 year-old San Diego sales analyst, likes running errands wearing a grey hoodie emblazoned with the words “The Angry Therapist” in bright orange Helvetica.

The back of the sweatshirt, reads, in the same bold orange lettering: “Dream big. Listen more. Talk less. Eat clean. Get strong. Forgive often. Love hard. Live well.”
