Well here I am, writing a blog post. What a thrilling introduction I do apologise for the lack of emotion in my writing and for the fact I don’t have an extravagant opening catchphrase! The concept of blogging is very unknown to me. I find it extremely bizarre that I can simply sit in my bed looking like crap and write a bunch of words which express my deepest or most honest feelings and they may or may not be seen by anyone at all?
So after that ramble you might actually want to know who I am and what I’m doing here in this corner of the interweb (and if not then I guess you can’t please everyone!). I’ve wanted to start a blog and reach out since for a few years now, since I was about 11. At that age I had started to delve into the world of social influencers and my passion for watching YouTube was blossoming, I became rather addicted! I just found it hugely therapeutic that I could click twice and watch unlimited videos of people who made me smile WHENEVER I wanted to and when it seemed like smiling was impossible! Growing up watching YouTube has definitely influenced my view on the world and I believe that the internet has given so many people such amazing opportunities and happiness, which is the main thing I am searching for (but of course I’m aware of the dangers of the internet too, don’t panic)!
To put it simply, I have been battling with my mental health for a long time now and I just want to be able to reach out and engage in the community that I have been on the other side of for so long! I love writing and I’ve always found it an amazing way to vent my feelings and get my head straight. So that alone is the biggest reason I’m sat here writing right now! I want to help people who feel alone and I want to be able to look back on this difficult time in my life when I’m better, WHICH I WILL BE!
If I could make one person feel slightly less alone then my life would be better and I would have achieved something great, but at the end of the day at least this blog gives me somewhere to vent and talk about whatever I need to whenever I need to. I want this space to be honest and real, no one is perfect and I certainly make many mistakes.
So join me on my journey to happiness…
