I just had a friend ‘break-up’. Over the phone and no less heartbreaking than a relationship break-up, because to me, that’s exactly what it was. I’ll rewind a little. You’ve probably noticed I don’t use names, no matter who I am talking about in this blog, but when I have mentioned someone, for a … Continue reading Fire Meet Gasoline
I am not allowed to drive this weekend, so I have been at home for the most part, which with the new series of Bojack Horseman having come out on Netflix, isn’t too bad of a thing. From the moment I started watching this show from the first series I fell in love with it. … Continue reading Flog or Revive?
So, I have a question for you. Can two people, with mental health problems that they are fighting individually, work together and have a relationship be it platonic or romantic? Or is it a total recipe for disaster and ultimately, a great deal of pain and heartache? This is something I have wondered, on … Continue reading When Mental Health Collides.
I wish life was like the movies. I don’t mean movies like the Human Centipede, which makes me wonder about the mental stability of the creator and the viewers alike, but more like the movies my Mum likes to watch. The kinds that me, my Dad and Brother like to call the ‘tacky crappy … Continue reading It’s Not Like the Movies
So, once again as often seems to be the case, I start writing a blog and then something sparks a new one so this is a rejig of my original thoughts. It’s been an intense week and this morning I have blown up. There’s been two days during the week prior to this that I … Continue reading Let’s Play Pretend.
Those who know me, particularly over the last 6 years, will know I had a brain haemorrhage in December 2012. I have alluded to this previously in my blogs but I have yet to go into any depth about the cause and effect of it. Previously, when I have spoken to people about the event … Continue reading Broken Brains.
So, I had an idea in my head for a post this week, which I shall get into, but as the Howie Day “soft rock” hit lyrical title hints at, I’ve had a bit of a slip since. A plan didn’t turn out how I envisioned and I got upset. I made plans with someone … Continue reading Even the Best Fall Down Sometimes
Over the last couple of weeks, I don’t think there is an emotion that I haven’t felt. There’s been anger, fear, panic, and regret but there’s also been love, happiness, and excitement. Despite the negative emotions, I have found myself to be a lot better at looking to the good instead, or at least recognising … Continue reading Emotional leftovers.
Some of you will be familiar with the title above. It’s Brené Brown’s wording, not mine unfortunately. I’ve had several of you tell me you’re now reading Daring Greatly because of my recommendation, and I love it! I hope you all get as much out of it as I did (and do – I’m on … Continue reading If we are to find our way out of shame – it will be together.
So, I am really excited about this one. I originally wrote it last week, but then I got recommended Brené Brown’s book – Daring Greatly, which I have devoured about three times in as many days, so I had to amend what I wanted to say. This book is incredible, I understand myself better and … Continue reading Hi, It’s Leah here. I’m back.
