Reaching out.


Every day is a new day...

When you’re feeling depressed, anxious, angry, confused (insert other emotion here) it can be scary. You feel like you’re the only person who feels this way and that it’s not normal. You look at other people’s lives and they seem perfect in comparison to your own. But did you ever think, if every person put their own problems in a pile, you’d probably take yours back? Everyone is fighting a battle, some bigger and more challenging than others. Something that seems so trivial to you may be a mountain of problems for another. The thing is, some people feel able to reach out whereas others don’t, can’t or feel there’s nobody to reach out to.

Hey, it’s okay to be single!


I’ve seen plenty of blogs and posts about how it is okay to be single. I am sure this is not the first blog you have come across, looking for reassurance that you are not alone in being alone. I am in my twenties, supposedly the decade where you are supposed to have fun, see the world, explore yourself and build your career. But all my friends just seem to be settling down, getting married and having babies.

I was not far off this myself. I met my ex-boyfriend when I was 18 and I can’t tell you how much I absolutely adored him (and to be fair, I could probably admit I still do). At the age of 22, we were ready to move in together and start the future that we had planned for so long. At least so I thought. Turns out, he actually met someone else to settle down with and I was rather promptly pushed out of the picture.
