Your soul feels passion, it feels delight, it is the symphony of the milk way, an inner warmth that […]

What does depression feel like?

Depression is more than just a low mood, it’s more than a label, it’s more than laziness, it’s not someone’s personality. Depression is the feeling of helplessness, the fighting to be optimistic, the steady humming in the frontal lobe, the sleep less nights accompanied by its neighbour; anxiety. When does biological depression start? How does […]

The Isolated Borderline

To the partners of the sufferer. I know how hard you try to help your loved one. I know how hard you try and make communication. The days your loved one curls up in bed not ready to face the day whilst you put food on the table, the rapid mood swings with such emotional […]

The Marilyn Project

Marilyn Monroe, our historical icon, wore her curves with dignity, her smile with force and her clothes with style. Monroe was abused as a child and grew up with mental health difficulties that lead her to take her own life so many years ago. In the age of social media it’s really important people are […]

Value your emotions because they’re valid

Emotions are gifts. They allow us to feel, they allow us to construct, they allow us to create. Is this a bad thing? No. Modern society sees normal emotions as a burden to the stability that is trying to be created through sociology development.

Have you ever looked around you and people all stable and laughing, the walls closing in on you, the hallways swallowing your mind whole, like you’re pushing yourself through quicksand, like your brain is slow and grounded, like you have no control over your anger? In the lowest moments do you sit there and listen […]

What side of the brain do you use?

  What side of the brain do you use? The interaction between both is a game of volleyball, a confusing element within its features, a comprehensive account of our genetics and memory processes… Skills are what motivates us. Experience is what shapes us. Atoms. That’s all we are atoms.  

Is it time to rethink borderline personality disorder?

I thought I’d do a post after seeing a post on Facebook about a kind hearted young girl taking her own life because of borderline personality disorder caused by abuse. I just want to point out the effects of borderline personality disorder and how it may impact on caregivers: BPD are loving individuals They are […]

What is love?

Love is undefinable. You think the person you love will always deliver the same you give to them. If it’s imbalanced it is destructive. As Shakespeare once said “The route of all heartache is expectation”  You can’t expect anyone to love you but you can always hold on to that inner hope. You have to love […]
