At the time we were all confused. It just seemed like she was completely high off her face or needed to be locked up in a mental asylum. But after struggling with various deists era for many years - I get it. I’ve even been there myself sometimes, moments from doing something mid massively regret (and a few times actually gone through with it).
The last few months have certainly brought a lot to light for me. I’ve witnessed my strength and my weakness, my fragility as a human being and the insane twists and often unpredictable turns of the human mind. They have taught me a lot too; about myself, about the intricacies of mental illness and about the unnoticed plight of those around us who struggle with different diseases and disorders that often go undiscussed.
Growing up, I genuinely thought I was a freak (don’t we all?) because I was very different from all of my friends. I know we all go through feelings of uncertainty, feeling like we don’t quite belong, but this wasn’t a case of growing pains or mistaken identity. Unknown to both myself and my family for years, I was suffering with bouts of severe anxiety. Unfortunately for me it was always mislabelled as home sickness or even being overly dramatic, but I knew that something was seriously wrong with me.
It’s certainly been a while since I’ve even had a slight inclination to write anything online. A tough few months in more ways than one, writing has been, quite frankly, the last thing on my mind - choosing instead to focus on keeping myself sane and, at times, alive.
Finally - a post featuring my favourite pics from Prague! Sorry it's been a few weeks in the making but my workload has been a bit hectic recently and the blog had to be put on the back burner. Never mind that - here they are!
You know what I'm sick of? Not having a damn boyfriend, pal or even family member who knows how to operate a camera. Seriously - my life would be so much easier with easy access to a trusty amateur photographer that I could just pay with hugs and hot chocolate. Wouldn't that be the dream?
