Break The Cycle.

So last night, on my Instagram, I uploaded three images that I had already posted to the platform but they were distorted and read “Break” “The” “Cycle”. Now, this actually had a couple of meanings and reasons why I posted these images, in that way, with that caption but zero hashtags (they literally garnered a…

S.E.X.

Sex. What do you know about sex? Tell me what you know about sex. Okay, so we have to get around to this point somehow, and no, this is not a detailed account of any sexual activities that I have engaged in. That sort of deal is best left to the professionals to write about,…

Reassurance.

I wrestled with the idea of having this post titled “Respect” but in reality, I think I have talked at length about that – about respecting one another and coming together for the betterment of our future world. I don’t want to keep harping on about the same thing but unfortunately, I often find myself…

Just Breathe.

Sometimes, my job is wonderful. I get to help people, I can network like a boss and I can do it all with ease. Sometimes, my job is stressful, and in those moments I can hate it. I think sometimes this is universal. We all have good days and bad days, and please don’t come…

After The Dark.

So last week I spoke about how last year I was in the deepest and darkest places my mind could take me. They weren’t fun places, they aren’t places I wish to revisit, but they are places that exist and I acknowledge that. I wrote the piece knowing that maybe somewhere, someone would try to…

Before The Light.

Finding the words is sometimes quite hard, and how deep you’re willing to go will really define the language you use. I have spoken about my mental health a lot, but often, I have skirted around certain issues, and not really talked about, just how bad it got for me a year ago. A year…

Big Boy.

I have reached a point where I accept my own bullshit. To put it frankly, I keep saying I’m going to live healthy and lose weight, but then I’ll happily wolf down a tube of pringles, two sandwiches, a 5 pack of brownies and a few pork pies but I’m “living healthy”. No, I’m not….

You Are Here.

It has perhaps been a while since I openly or honestly addressed my mental health. There’s reasons for this. One being, I don’t want to be that guy to make my mental health my defining feature, and the other being, I don’t want to make out as if I am boasting. The fact of the…

Scream!

I’ve just come off the back of two night shifts at work, which to some, probably doesn’t seem a lot, and to me, it really isn’t. I worked for 18 months on the night shift on my old job, but I am definitely no longer equipped for it. The problem lies completely with my mental…

Fear Itself.

  It has been quite some time since I paid some serious attention to the current state of my body, and just exactly where I am in the grand scheme of being healthy. My diet has changed dramatically, and my physical activity varies wildly depending upon the time I have spare outside of work. Granted,…
