I’m not sharing all this so you can feel sorry for me. I’m not sharing this to make you feel uncomfortable. I’m sharing this as I think it’s important to talk about the uncomfortable subjects in life. It’s important to talk about your losses, as well as your gains, to share your disappointments alongside your achievements, to stand up and go ‘this f***ing sucks’ without being told other people have it worse, or to be thankful for what you have, or any of the other cliches we tell people when we ask how they are without wanting an honest answer.

Mental Health – We All Have It!

have spent my entire life being exposed to the negative effects that poor mental health can have on both the individual and those around them. From seeing those close to me being admitted to hospital, supporting friends through panic attacks and self-harm relapses, and myself being on and off anti-depressants since I was 15, it has been near impossible for me to be unaware of the concept of mental illness. This is why when people disregard the need for mental health awareness it both baffles and infuriates me.
