Childline

Hey everyone,

I thought i would talk about childline today because it helped me so much when i was going through a tough time in my life. They are there for you twenty-four hours a day. You can message a councillor directly and you don’t have to give them any personal details. You can just tell them how you feel and it made me and many others feel so much better. Like you are not alone, because you are not. They deal with countless cases of people in need and they can help you too. They are there for you and to help you as much as they can. They can give you advice and comfort you. You are able to ring them or message them on the website. Just give it a go, it helped me a lot and i hope it helps you too. Comment with any questions.

Lots of love

Depression

Hey guys,

So i thought i would write about depression since as i said in my last post, i was suffering from it last year. To me it felt like however much i wanted it to go away, it would not. I just felt extremely sad and annoyed with myself i just thought, why would anyone want to be friends with me? It was like my little secret. I have such a lovely life but depression can happen to everyone no matter their background. I felt that i could not tell anyone because they might not believe me, but that is not true. Trust me you fell so much better once you tell someone. It’s like a weight has been taken off of your shoulders. Getting help is important and many organisations are confidential and won’t tell anyone if you don’t want them to. I have now passed that time in my life but it lasted a long time. To everyone out there you are not alone, i am happy to talk to anyone about it if you want me to. Don’t give up. I know it hurts at the moment but trust me i know people say all the time that it get’s better, but it genuinely does. You will be happy again! Childline was my saviour, but i will tell you about that in another post. Leave me any comments or questions about depression or anything you want to say!

Lots of love

Hello again

Hi everyone!

I am sorry i haven’t blogged for quite a while but i have been really busy with school. Some of my previous posts are quite sad and i found out that at that time i was struggling with depression. Having this blog enabled me to spread my feelings without having to talk to someone about it in real life. Sometimes writing about your problems can help you a lot. I recommend it because it helped me. I am now over that hard time in my life so hopefully my newer posts should be a bit more positive. Hope you are all well, feel free to comment if you have any questions.

Lots of love

A quote

“In order to be irreplaceable one must be different” -Coco Chanel

No one wants to be normal and be boring being different is great, even if your not happy with being different now you will be eventually, when you realise you are beautiful anyway!

It’ll get better

We’ve all probably thought, ‘I can’t cope anymore’. I’ve thought this many times! I just get more frustrated than the average person because it’s sometimes hard to accept that your different, even though I usually am happy to be unique. The teenage years are that hardest times in your life, or so I’m told. I’ve hit rock bottom a lot recently but I suppose it can only get better, I don’t think it could get any worse anyway. Things will get better eventually so we all we’d to persevere as it will get better at some point in our lives!

Sport

Being in a wheelchair means that most people assume you cannot do sport. That’s rubbish! The Paralympics is around because many people who are disabled are amazing athletes. I love sport I do athletics, swimming and everything else that my friends do. I enjoy bring active. People don’t realise how sitting in a wheelchair all day long makes you stiff and uncomfortable after a while. It can also start to heal you and make you stronger so actually we need to excercise more than anyone else!
