Clouds with silver linings are still clouds. But it is quite therapeutic to know that pleasure doesn’t just help compensate for pain, it can actually grow out of it. Shit happens; it’s a part of life. There’s no two ways about it. You can’t protect yourself from all the bad stuff, no matter how hard…

… And The Sun Will Rise

The worst thing in the world can happen, but the next day the sun will rise. So please ask yourself; what would i do if i weren’t afraid? And then go do it. Even if you go for it and it doesn’t work out, you still win. You still had the guts enough to head…

Right Person, Wrong Time

Relationships are hard. There is only two possible outcomes of every relationship; you either spend the rest of your lives together, or you break up. I know it’s probably not what you want to hear, but it’s true. They say it can be “right person, wrong time” but that’s a load of rubbish, if it’s…

The Fundamentals Of A Fresh Start

Ever had the desire to just pack up your belongings and leave, to move to a place where nobody knows you, to become the person you want to be. What’s stopped you? What’s been the thing holding you back? I can almost guarantee that most of you can’t think of an answer that seems reasonable….

Take A Break

As an humans, we are constantly changing and growing. If you reflect on how you were two years ago I can almost guarantee there’s a substantial difference in your overall character.

17 Lessons I Learnt In 2017

With the new year dawning upon us, i think it’s a perfect time to reflect on the year that’s passed. 2017, for me, was the year of change. As someone who has always avoided change, 2017 was thought to be a challenge with all this inevitable change going to occur. However, it’s probably been the…

You Are Not Weak

In one of my classes at college, the theme of abusive relationships got brought up, closely followed by a heated argument where the majority were stating that those who stay in abusive relationships are “weak”, “idiots” or “deserve it”. This is just a fraction of the ignorant and narrow minded comments i heard today. Firstly…

Never Too Late

As we grow up we start to believe that who we were yesterday is who’ll we be tomorrow and who we are tomorrow is who’ll we be the day after. After a couple of years you become the same person you were two years ago. You conform to the idea that you can’t change yourself,…

Love Yourself

The way you love yourself sets up the standard of how much others love you. When you understand your own self worth, you subconsciously start to realise what you deserve, you cut out those people who don’t value you or urge you to better yourself. “Self love is the greatest middle finger of all time”…

Recharge And Reboot

Not a single thing in nature blooms all year round, so don’t expect yourself to. This is something that has always been in my mind but I have often found it hard to accept. I used to keep a monthly journal, where I would keep a record of my mood, sleep, socialised and exercise, I…
