The Low Mood

From the naked eye you see a smile A delightful smile of a woman who has everything What you don’t see are the bricks within the decorated walls The bricks that weigh down her emotions The bricks that fall on her heavy as she sleeps You can’t see the bricks she holds within herself So […]

Symbols & Indoctrinations

One way to separate an individual from a mental health label is to ask them their values.  Values are what separates each individual retrospectively. For example, one person may choose to live in a busy city to work for a top technology firm because they enjoy communication and applying their skills to the general population whereas […]

Till death do us part

A tree never forgets it’s roots right? Well nethier do people.  Observation is a gift. It’s a resemblance of being open-minded. I’m not one of those people who says “Get over yourself” or “You’re just being silly” if someone opens up to me about a problem. I’m the type of person who understands real world situations and what […]

The difference between ‘thinking’ and mental health conditions

So we’ve all heard the saying – ‘If you can change your thoughts you can change your life.’ Yes this is true…   But…   Mental health conditions can affect an individual neurologically, physically and mentally that can have a substantial impact on everyday life. Some mental health conditions require medication to keep the brain […]

Using the environment to describe mental health💙

How does this work?  You travel to a place that means something to you personally. It can be local, abroad, or […]

A Special Kind Of Project

Okay, so I had a mental breakdown although little did I know it would open opportunities and possibilities for me to develop myself even further. I’ve learnt so much from aspiring people who are interested in the way I write and have a new advertising project to contend with. To focus on writing makes me […]

They can often seem socially inept but want to socialise without having the necessary interactive skills to because they were so deprived of these skills as children that […]

Creative writing: The Innocent Boy

This is his story. He walked towards the mirror and knealt down on the night of a full moon, it’s reflection mirrored in the glass. He stopped. His inner evaluative speech triggered his thoughts to reconcile the attachment developments he experienced as a child as he remembered all he had courageously fought through; the mirror […]

Ernest Hemingway’s Mind

Ernest Hemingway once said: “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self” What does this quote imply? Ernest Hemingway struggled with depression at the time he wrote this quote. You can tell by his words. The first sentence shows he probably tried to […]
