After my previous relationship, I truly felt like I could never care or trust someone new. I thought that I didn’t deserve to be loved. I thought that I could never find someone to accept my strange and quirky traits. I thought that I could never find someone who would be just weird as me. … More I’ve Met Someone.
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. To me, (and I would like to make this crystal clear, this ONLY applies to myself) I think that asking for help makes me weak. This is … More Asking For Help.
Dear Journal, This week has been one of the most difficult weeks so far this year. At the beginning of the week I had a bit of a problem at work. I have been extra agitated and it’s caused quite a bit of friction between the people that I work with. I’ve been working on … More Nobody Said It Will Be Easy.
Dear Journal, Where have I been? Good question! I have been… busy. The truth is, things have been pretty bad for me. I’ve been very stressed. My moods have been so up and down. SH is at it’s all time worst. I have been and visited a psychiatrist for the first time a few weeks … More Where Have I Been…?
You are NOT good enough. You are too hard to love. No-one will ever love or accept you. You are ugly. You are fat. Everyone hates you. You will fail if you try. You are crazy. You are stupid.

When I first thought about what I would write about for this post, I was going to write about how I was brave and moved to South Korea by myself. Of course that was such a great thing that I did and experienced. However, recently I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about some of … More Gratitude Challenge: A Challenge You’ve Overcome.
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, Today I want to talk to you about “building bridges”. Over the past 6 years I’ve burnt more friendship bridges than I could have ever imagined. It’s often not because I don’t like the person anymore or because we have different interests. It’s often because my anxiety or depression has stopped me from … More Building Bridges.
*** TRIGGER WARNING*** Okay here goes, I’ve thought about writing about this for a while now. But, I’ve always stopped myself. I guess maybe I’m scared of the response this might get, or (most likely) what people will think of me. When you’re dealing with stress, anxiety or depression, it’s exhausting. It’s like a constant … More Loving Someone With Anxiety & Depression.
