Battling Mental Health

As someone who suffers with ‘anxiety and a little bit of depression’, I can honestly say I was beyond scared at first, as I didn’t know what the heck it was. It sounds scary, and it is scary having these things- constantly battling your own mind, thinking you’re not good enough or you’ll never amount to anything. I find it hard to order my own food and drink in cafès, restaurants etc; the most simplest of tasks to other people become 100× harder for me. It’s hard living with any mental illness… it really is.

Help is out there though, don’t feel ashamed of having to ask for it, people do generally care. Having a mental illness of any sort doesn’t make you any less human.

To quote 2 heroes of mine: ‘Why Do We Fall? So We Can Learn To Pick Ourselves Up’ and ‘You’ll Never Know If You Can Fly, Unless You Take The Risk Of Falling’…

Love yourself, you are truly worth it, whether you feel like it or not. You was put on this planet for a reason.

  • This Month’s Theme

    The idea of talking about Christmas in September divides the nation, but we’re going to do it anyway, because the next issue is planned for release just in time for the holidays!

    In the past we’ve focused on the commercial side, and on entertainment, but this year we’re thinking a little differently.

    While we are still accepting content on any topic and still love to read all your reviews, we would like to put an emphasis on feelgood stories, things that can open our eyes or make us feel something, whether that’s advice on conquering a fear or goal, stories from real people in the community, celebrations and events, stories of experiences or foreign, far off places, or perhaps something as simple as a warming family recipe.

    Good luck, and happy writing! Content deadline November 1st.
