Asking for help is something that I’m not particularly good at. I would much rather struggle in silence and pretend that everything is okay rather than reaching out.

Going and telling a complete stranger that something is wrong is no easy task. It takes courage, strength and confidence. All of which in recent months I have been struggling with.

Firstly, I’m so so so so so sorry that this post is a day late. This week has just been crazy busy, and it’s only Wednesday. I made it one of my goals at the beginning of 2017 to build on my self-confidence. So recently, I’ve taken up a yoga class among some other things. … More Five Things I Like About Myself – Gratitude Challenge.
Today is Time To Talk Day. I’m so glad that a day like this is happening. It’s so important for people to talk about mental illness. There is no need for there to be such a stigma regarding mental health. And people certainly shouldn’t feel that they need to hide away and struggle in silence. Having experienced … More #TimeToTalk
Dear Journal, Today was my first day at my new job. I was so nervous, I was worried that I would mess up. I was worried that I was going to freak out and panic.
