So I have always been awful at talking about how I feel, and expressing my emotions out loud. But when I do it in the form of writing I find that I can get out what I need and even get out some more that I didn’t even realise I needed to get out.
I am so happy that it is something I managed to begin to do, it is a very big thing to me. It was never for views, comments, etc. Although I don’t complain and am very grateful when my posts are read, I would Defo say that it’s more of an online/digital diary where I am free to talk about anything and everything I want to. How I want to and when I want to. I’m sure I’ve said it before but I find it so much easier to express my feelings or just my ideas and beliefs in writing, than using my own words out loud.
It has really helped me to find my niche and I think that’s somewhere in Mental health and well-being. The confidence blogging has given me has allowed me to gain a tonne of new experiences and I have recently been given a couple of volunteering opportunities, one of them being on the youth panel for a website called ‘The Mix’. Talking about awareness for mental health and the stigmas around it.
As I’ve mentioned before I’d always wanted to start a blog anyway, and since starting it life has honestly improved bunches in a rage of different ways!
What I have learnt from blogging? How to be myself. And that if you want to do something, don’t let FEAR hold you back!
