For the majority of my life I have lived in isolation, every day surrounded by people but feeling more and more alone. Every Morning I would wake up, put on a fake smile and crack on with my day the best I could until eventually it became a routine and I continued without even realising I was doing.
For the best part of my 20's I didn't tell a soul how I felt, I was so down in the dumps all the time, I felt ashamed of who I was and how I was feeling. But one day I broke and it all came flooding out.
I didn't think anyone would care, that they would just tell me to get over it and cheer up. I was quite lucky as this didn't happen and after a few weeks of persuasion I got the help I so desperately needed
My life now is in a much stronger position and my mental health is far greater than it ever was. Through opening up and talking things through I have come out the other end and living life as best I can.
This brings me to why I have started this blog today.
I want to reach out to those of you who are where I used to be. Those of you that perhaps feel like you don't belong.
Nobody should have to feel alone in this world.
With this blog I am hoping to create a safe space for you to open up and talk things through, without fear of judgement.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope to hear from you soon
