Yours Truly

I posted this on Instagram and Facebook yesterday but I wanted to put it here too, in the hope that some days I will remember my own advice!

Smiling

{Smiling} I often joke that I’m the happiest depressed person I know. Smiling on the outside doesn’t mean happiness on the inside all the time. But that’s okay. It’s not a front though, it’s just who I am. I get through with a smile and some choice swear words. As always, this too shall pass.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Don’t be afraid to say no. Don’t worry about what others are thinking of you. Because most of us are so inside our own heads worrying about the same damn stuff.

It’s okay to say ‘I’m afraid’. Sharing how you feel is never a weakness, its a strength. And I have always found that when I am open and honest I not only help myself but also those other people who say “oh thank fuck I thought it was just me”.

If we all talk about Mental Health people might not feel so alone.

    ‘Sharing how you feel is never a weakness, it’s a strength’ – if only more people realised this!
