With social media in our faces all the time, we’re offered a snapshot into our friends’ seemingly perfect lives, which can leave us feeling inadequate, jaded and darn right depressed. Someone close to me once mentioned that if we could all put our problems under a tree, and see everyone else’s, we’d quickly run back and pick ours up again.
The purpose of this entry is as much cathartic as it is meant to help you pick yourself up again. Perhaps you’ve faced a recent tragedy; maybe you’re dealing with ongoing stress like a divorce, working for a dictatorial boss, your cat died, or you’ve been diagnosed with a terminal illness. Maybe it’s none of the above, and you’re simply down in the dumps. We all know how difficult it is to face the world and carry on – especially if you’re a working professional, you’re at school, or completing a demanding qualification. Perhaps you’re a home-maker and notoriously it’s up to you to be the cheerleader of your family.
Here’s my personal story, and my lifeline to (hopefully) inspire you to get up again.
