Mental illness does not care who you are. It does not care whether you are a naturally bubbly person, or a pessimist. It doesn't care if you are a loner, or surround yourself by friends at every given moment. It doesn't care if you are in love. It doesn't care if you are a high flyer. Mental illness is a predator, searching for your weak spots and exploiting them.

Passion is the promise that you will never give up trying. Passion is the high you get from simply being happy in a moment, without the thirst for recognition.

However, the Conservative… Continue reading Dear Someone – 13/7/15
Day 1 - A letter to yourself as a child Dear little one, You won't appreciate your life until you are verging on twenty-five. Even then, you will still have no idea just how lucky you are. You won't appreciate how easy it is to play, how unnecessary it is to worry and how much… Continue reading Dear Someone – 4/7/15
