If We Said Our Negative Thoughts About Ourselves Out Loud, Could Their Power Over Us Be Removed?

The day I went for my assessment was an emotional one. The fear of what may happen and general emotions of the day left me with a feeling, if I’m going to do this therapy, I need to do it wholeheartedly. That meant I had one problem I haven’t tackled…my narcasistic mother and step father.

1. If there was a time in your life that you were depressed, what did you do to help yourself?
This time last year I was at my lowest. I wanted a way out and knew I had to find one. so after some research I decided to make 2014 a different year for me. I set new goals and challenges for myself, the first was an outlet for my emotions and so began my blog.

I don’t have pets, although I would love to.

very rarely.

Don’t feel guilty for having limitations.

My best friend! The strength she has is amazing and she still finds time to be there for me too, no matter what. She has taught me so much!
