Farewell

This post didn't seem too far from existence when considering my previous. But the time came to sit and reflect on the madness my December encompassed, to try and make sense of everything. So I did just that, typing it up to expose myself in the hope that maybe there would come a happy ending.... Continue Reading →

#WorldMentalHealthDay

The day all mental health advocates rise from the dark, limbs digging out through the soil like zombies shunned for speaking too much, bodies buried under 'stigma' and 'fear' and 'taboo'. The day we share hashtags and stories of bad times, speak on how #ItsOKNotToBeOkay and the importance of #MentalHealthAwareness. The missing apostrophe in the... Continue Reading →

Independence

Independence wasn't something I had a lot of growing up. Rarely was I allowed to go out with friends on weekends and holidays, and so I hardly ever socialised with people outside of family functions, school and the extra classes I'd been thrown into. As much as I hated my whereabouts being monitored, it's only... Continue Reading →

Beginnings

Perhaps I should begin with an explanation as to why I decided to start sharing my deepest and darkest thoughts on a platform so very public. And oh how I wish I had an answer to my own questions. But I don't. You see, I told myself many years ago I would start a blog... Continue Reading →
