World Mental Health Day…

If you’ve followed me from the beginning, you will know that this blog started off as a place for me to write down my thoughts and feelings. I was going through a really rough time and felt through this blog was the only way I could express myself.  No sponsored or gifted posts, no posts about how career driven I am and no posts about my now bright and colourful, jam packed life where I go running and do fitness things. Back then the posts were sad. My content was more based on my journey with Anxiety & Depression, or focused on Panic Attacks or Self Judgement everything was just very negative. Looking back and reading those posts you can see I was trying to write them in a positive light, when I just wasn’t positive at all!

And why do I not write that content anymore? It’s as simple as; I don’t need to. Looking back, I would not be the Chloe I am today without that phase of my life. Period. I am in no way ashamed of it. That phase has made me grow into the person that I am really proud of today. But I just no longer feel the need to write about it because that is just not me anymore. Yes, ok, I still get bouts of anxiety when I struggle to go outside or eat in a restaurants without the breakdown in the toilets but it is minuscule in comparison to Chloe 3 years ago. This being the main reason for the change in content.

Today is World Mental Health Day and I usually write a post for it. But this year I wanted to write it from the point of view of someone who has gotten through the other side. Keep going, find something to focus on and don’t stress yourself over not being a certain thing. Medication, counselling, CBT, a chat to a close friend or a time out from work or even a walk in the park. Take your time. This year they are really pushing the phrase ‘It’s ok, not to be ok’ could a phrase be more perfect for this subject? I think not. 

Much Love,

Chloe May x

  1. I love the angle you took this post for Mental Health Awareness Day. It’s great to see others being open about their mental health but it’s also amazing to see true stories from people who have been there and made it out the other side! I feel similar to you. Although I do struggle still I am SO much better than I used to be. And a few years ago, I wasn’t sure I’d ever get better! x

  2. This is amazing Chloe, thanks for sharing your journey. So glad you are feeling positive and happy 😊 I really enjoy reading your content, and this is a great post for World Mental Health Day, showing how finding something to focus on (like writing or blogging) can really help someone through a rough period. Blogging has definitely helped my mental health so much, and it’s a great way to express ourselves x
