Sometimes when we are feeling low we feel so alone, but there is always someone who is there for us, waiting to hold us up through the difficult times.


I thought this song summed it up quite well.

I've never seen you look so empty
I've ne...

It's been a month since Mum died. Thirty-one days. Seven hundred and seventy-four hours. Four thousand, four hundred and 60 minutes.


It feels like a long time, as though it's been years, but also feels as though she could have died yesterday or last week. If there's on...

Being bullied is something which I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. I wouldn’t even wish it on my bully. It robs you of your self esteem, makes you feel like you’re an easy target and forces you to wonder ‘why me?


When I was in Year 7, I was quite a quiet girl. I used...

I distinctly remember being about nine or ten and mentioning to a teacher, who asked me why I was crying, that I was being bullied. They told me that I wasn't being hit so it couldn't be bullying. It was, unfortunately, something that really stuck with me but at the ti...

Opening up – it is a hard thing to do. Especially if you feel like no one cares. Back in 2012 when my best friend moved to the other side of the country, I felt lost, alone, worthless. I used to isolate myself in my room and I used to do things to hurt myself, physical...

I'm deeply saddened by the recent events in Paris. I'm sad that there is such tragedy and terror in the world and I hate seeing unnecessary loss of life.


 The hope I take from this situation is that we are all struck by how awful and terrible it is. Thankfully we haven...

Mum's funeral was last Friday. We chose to have a small service at the crematorium in the morning followed by a larger thanksgiving service at the church in the afternoon.


I've been to a few funerals before now. The first I ever went to was my Grandma's. I was only eig...
