Dear Journal, … Ready? … I have a job. I’m so happy! I hate not having a job. A job makes me feel like I have a purpose, a responsibility. I have always wanted to work in a coffee shop and now I’ve got the chance to experience that coffee barista life. Tomorrow is my … More I Have News.
In the past, my previous therapists have always suggested that I keep a journal. I’ve kept a journal on and off for about 13 years. During a bad patch last year I decided that having those journals were holding me back from becoming the person that I wanted to be, so I made the decision … More How Journaling is Helping My Recovery.
Hello lovelies! I hope you’re having a fantastic weekend so far. I just wanted to come on here and just share a few things with you.

Dear Journal, This week has been incredibly tough. When I woke up this morning, something was different. My mind was different. There wasn’t this ‘black rainy cloud’ suffocating my mind. There was silence, and calmness. For those of you who know me, my mind is constantly made up of overthinking and ‘what if’s’ and stress. … More Make It Count.
Wow, okay. *Deep breaths* A few weeks ago I made a decision that was very hard to make. Saying goodbye is never easy, it doesn’t matter if that person is your friend, your sister, your boyfriend, it doesn’t matter. It’s difficult all round. When I lived in South Korea, I began a relationship with a Korean … More By Loving You, I Lost Myself.
Dear Journal, Today I want to talk about something that is very… tragic and unexpected. Death has always been something that scares me, I guess it’s the same for a lot of people. I mean, it’s a very morbid and scary thing to think about. Death puts life into prospective. It makes us realise just … More I Will Miss You.
Dear Journal, This week I feel like I’m really struggling, and it’s only Tuesday! I’m feeling kind of overwhelmed and I’m letting stuff get on top of me.
