Are you okay?

“Are you okay?” “Not really.” *No reply* “Are you okay” “Not really.” “Well i’m here if you wanna talk.” “I would love to actually” *No reply* “Are you okay?” “Yeah, I’m fine.” “Great, now let’s talk about that really stressful thing that you hate talking about.” Brilliant. These are real conversations (If you’re can callContinue reading “Are you okay?”

My weekend away

Hello reader, I hope you had a fantastic September. As you might have realised, I took September off and didn’t make any posts. I have decided that this will be a recurring event.

My (not so positive) experience with driving

For those of you who don’t know, I have always wanted to learn how to drive from a very young age because I was obsessed with the idea of freedom and being further away from home than ‘in town’ where I was in control.

Loneliness is more than ‘not having anyContinue reading “I’m not afraid to admit this”

The Takeover – Daisy Doyle

I’ve been asked to share this. It is a fantastic piece of literature written by one of my good friends, Daisy. My head spinning; my thoughts intrusive, it resembles a tumble-dryer.

Pride

Wow, two posts in two days? This is unheard of for me! What I really want to know today is what people think of when I say the word ‘pride’. The rainbow flags? Parades? The LGBTQ+ community? Maybe it is one of these, or maybe it’s something far smaller than this. Maybe it’s simply beingContinue reading “Pride”

Don’t let mental health be your brick wall.

It’s like there’s a barrier which you have to break down before you can do much moreContinue reading “Don’t let mental health be your brick wall.”
