Here we go..
I’m Emily. I considered blogging for a while but always felt nervous at the prospect of entering a world where I am expected to be fully open about topics which are important to me. I’m a very reserved person and so although this is still online behind a screen, it is out of my comfort zone, it’s like having a spotlight shining on your life in therapy.
Nevertheless, I thought I’d give it a try. I have anxiety and depression and so would like this space to reflect on my mental health and my journey – I have a particular passion for yoga, and so am also keen on writing posts on related topics such as this which have aided my wellbeing. I have no idea where this will go, and whether I will even get noticed! But it’s still a platform for me to express myself which is the main thing.
I not long woke up, and since yesterday I’ve dipped nervously in and out of this website, thinking about what to say, and what is the right thing to say, or what will stand out enough given all of the fierce competition in the blogging world. Maybe I’m looking at it in the wrong way. So as I’m here rubbing my eyes and yawning every five seconds, I’m just blurting out what’s on my mind for the first time. Maybe that’s the best way, right?
That’s me for now, bye!
