Someone said that grief is more or less when you have love to give to someone but they’re not there to receive it.
Dealing with trauma, emotional pain and mental health problems is sometimes like that old wound that never fully heals. At this time of year it can be harder.
despite the stigma and whatever challenges remain, I have never felt stronger or more hopeful. And it is because now I know I am not alone.
I have actively tried, very hard to plod on. I have found happy moments, and I now see so much more of the beauty in the world.
I always say pain changes you. I am not the person I was yesterday, and tomorrow I will not be the person I am today. It’s moulding me into a better, stronger me.
…every day I decide to live, another person, someone, chooses to die. Their struggle is my struggle, but they have now gone while I still have a chance…

It reminded me of the times I thought I wouldn’t make it, but did. And the times I thought circumstances would win, but instead I did. It reminded me that I’m strong. I have much to give, and that no matter how hard it gets I just have to keep going.
I still struggle at times but a huge part of getting better has been preparing my meals with love and care (mindful cooking), connecting what I eat with what my body will benefit from, and mindful eating… Food therapy anyone?
