I had to entitle this first post “This is me” as I think it resonates with so many of us, but I also considered singing out loud “Who am I?” from Les Miserable, another film I love. I cant promise I wont be singing while writing this but ill save you from hearing me (for now hehe)
I’m a Tropic skincare ambassador, but I’m also a Mental health warrior and supporter. While doing my day to day job, I come into contact with so many people of all ages, that suffer with varying degrees of mental health issues. As someone who suffered with eating disorders for most of my life (finally feel I’ve beaten it) I learnt that for me, that was a way of allowing me to splurge as I didn’t feel I could or was allowed to talk about what I was really feeling and dealing with.
Various things over the last few years, have aided my recovery. Not that I don’t still get depressed, I do and I will always rely on my low dose of anti-depressants, but learning to understand myself, finding a role that allows me to be me, alongside my family showing and making me feel loved, has had a powerful effect and I just want, no just, I NEED to get all those thoughts and feelings on paper (I can pretend this is paper, as I type faster than I write and my ocd, about checking my grammar and spelling, has an outlet.
Thank you for reading and coming on this journey with me.
