A new year's letter to you




Dear you. 

The you who is ready to face the year head on and is raring to go. The you who is rolling into the new year indifferent. The you who looks at the 365 days ahead and wonders how you can possibly see the 1st of January 2019. This letter is for you.

I am beautiful



I am beautiful. Something I may not say very often because we live in a society where you are seen as vain if you think so positively about yourself. Most days, like the majority of people my age, my self esteem is lower than it should be. But some days, like today, I know that I am beautiful. Not the type of head turning beautiful, not the type of dribble beautiful but someone whose beauty grows as you get to know them.

Dear Santa, this year I want nothing


Its that time of year where children are writing their Santa's list, where teens are discussing what expensive gifts their parents will be buying, where bloggers post their wish lists and where we are all in the shops trying to find that perfect something. But this year I've kept my paper blank.

A look at the mental health community



For a little over a year I have been an active part of the mental health twitter community and wow have I seen some changes, and now I am at this weird cross road where I am not quite sure if I want to keep my place in that community. Let me explain.

I am not your inspiration


Ever since I started talking openly about my mental health, I have been showered countless times with the complement "you are such an inspiration". I always took this to heart and felt warm inside. Yet it dawned on me that I am only an "inspiration" because of my mental illness. Like all experiences in life it is what you do with it that defines who you are, I use my mental illness to help others. However, it dawned on me that I am only your inspiration when you are faced with a pretty picture of recovery.

A letter to the healthier me


To a healthier me,

There are many old versions of myself that I could address this letter to, some versions were worse off, others better off but this letter is to myself last year, to a healthier, better version of myself.
