Mental illness, medication and me.

Who’s in charge here?

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all” ~ Oscar Wilde No, but really. Who? We are born. And then we die.

Why aren’t you crying anymore?

Because the goal posts have changed. Because the further along I get on this journey, the more I’m realising something. It’s all bullshit. Everything. *Buckle up, this is a long one* All that we learn. All that we are told. All that we believe. All that we think is right or wrong. All bigger than… Continue reading Why aren’t you crying anymore?

Yes it’s a word. Look it up if you don’t believe me. Okay don’t, it’s clearly not a word but I couldn’t decide between proud and empowered so I went with both. I can’t remember the last time I felt genuinely proud of myself. Not just an ‘I did good’ or pat on the back… Continue reading Em-proud

Authenticity or attention seeking ?

If I’m honest, I don’t even know anymore. I guess it’s subjective? I could post a picture on here where I think I look nice and some would think I’m trying to grab attention.

Apparently, it’s a personality trait of mine but that’s something I’ve only recently discovered. 16personalities says that as an INFP (that’s… Continue reading I am the 1%

God love this woman! She’s so freaking incredible. Like I would legit use her words in an argument. “You don’t know what you’re talking about bitch. Brené Brown said...so don’t you come over here, getting all up in my grill”. I’ve just watched her Netflix show ‘Call to Courage’ for the 3rd time. Today I’m… Continue reading Brené Brown said…
