How comparing myself to others turns into misplaced anger

It took me a long time to realise that a lot of my depression was manifesting into misplaced anger. And that a lot of that was directed at people I could not help but compare myself to.

How I’m starting to combat letting my idolised self take over my life

I’ve talked to you about the highs of being a rainbow potato (which, if you haven’t seen my YouTube branding is basically what I’ve dubbed myself – I’m not sure why but it just fits) but I wanted to talk to you a little bit today about being afraid to start something.

Mental Health Awareness Week: How birth control affected my mental health

I hesitated writing this post for a lot of reasons but not least that I don’t want this post to feel like it exits only because it’s mental health awareness week this coming week but sometimes moments like ‘mental health awareness week’ force you to have that little bit of courage to speak up.

Blog: Dodie O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire concert 1/04/18

Year in review: The highlights and fails of my 2017

How Kiki’s Delivery Service helped my mental health

Main Image: Kiki’s Delivery Service/ Studio Ghibli  I am currently trying to pretend that Halloween is not over. Although, I am very much excited for the Christmas drinks at Costa; I can never fully get into the Christmas spirit until the December ‘I need to buy presents now’ panic hits in.

I’ve officially finished my Masters degree

Image: Pexels (A representation of a students life if they are way more hip than I was/ somehow have enough time to use a type writer, and like coffee).  A short(ish) and slightly personal post ahead. This is just a warning so you know for what you’re getting yourself in for, so don’t say IContinue reading “I’ve officially finished my Masters degree”
