Where have I been?

My last blog post was posted on the 23rd May so its been a while since I’ve actually posted anything. I would love to have some amazing excuse but the truth is, I haven’t been 100% confident in the content that I have been posting. I mean, its okay. I’m not completely downbeat about what…

#PrayForManchester

The recent bombing in Manchester at Ariana Grande’s concert has really hit me, if I’m honest. I honestly feel lucky that I did not attend this concert but am so heartbroken for the thousands of people who did and have lost various loved ones at this tragic time. Having attended concerts and music festivals since…

University Life.

I have wanted to write this blog post for a long time now, however I am coming to the end of my first year, so it seemed like a fitting time to do it. Being a university student comes with the constant strain of lectures, assignments, presentations, assessments, portfolio pieces, placements and all the little…

// Am I happy? – Update //

Recently, many people have been noticing that I seem “well” and “happier”. Truth is, I am. I feel so good at the moment and its having an influence on everything that I do. Even today, someone that I used to work with told me that I look really happy and seem much better than I…

This Post Is For You.

This blog post is for you. You’re going through a rough time at the moment, that’s undeniable. It must feel like nothing is going right at the minute. You’re losing people who you thought would be there for the long run, and everything seems to be happening at once. You’re falling down at the moment,…

Moving forward..

Sometimes we get stuck in the things that have happened in our past and it’s hard to move on from those moments. We tell ourselves that we can’t like a certain person because we get caught in the idea that they are going to be exactly like the others and that we’re going to get…

LGBT: You Are Valid.

The other day, I was walking down the road near my flat with the girl that I have recently been talking too. We were holding hands and three young lads, around 18 years old, decided to shout it out and make a thing about it. I don’t see why it is needed, and why people…

In case you needed to hear it..

So far, you have survived 100% of your worst days. You are doing better than you think. As soon as we have our bad days, its easy to tell ourselves that we’re done for and that “this is how it ends”. But you have made it this far, despite the difficulties. You have climbed over…

One of those weeks..

It’s easy to tell ourselves that our problems don’t matter, and that its easier to keep quiet and just face things as they come. But its okay to accept that you might need extra support more than you did the day before. The last few days, I have really been struggling. I’ve felt really low…

“Coming out”

I cannot explain how scary it can be to come out to your friends and family. It comes with a billion psychological,┬ásocial, emotional and physical stresses that can have such a strong effect on an individual. I have known since I was 12 years old, but came out when I was 17 years old. I…

You, you, you.

Don’t worry about what other people think of you. Don’t stress about trying to make everyone else happy, concentrate on yourself and who you are. Be the best you that you can possibly be, for yourself. Why should we change who we are just to make the people around us accept us? It sucks that…

Moving on..

To be upset about a break-up is okay. To find it difficult to move on from someone is also okay. In fact, its normal. What isn’t okay is making someone feel bad for breaking up with you. Break ups happen and that’s life. You may think that everything is perfect, and that it’s all going…
