I'm back!

Hello everyone!


I'm back from my break, with a new design, new blog posts and an update.

From this post forward, I will be publishing posts every Sunday rather than my previous twice a week. Don't forget that you can be kept up to date with my blog by following me on bloglovin, here.

This post marks the beginning of my third and possibly final year at university studying law. This year, I have to do well in my exams to graduate, manage my university's mental health society, be on my university's welfare committee and hopefully join a sports society and get a job. But, we will see how it all pans out and I'm going to try and put the least stress on myself as possible. 

This Summer has been very difficult for me, so by going back to university it will give myself the chance to heal and be ready for the upcoming year. But it has also had it's accomplishments such as driving on my own for many hours on the motorway, which I now feel comfortable with, working at the charity shop and taking part in jury service. Of course, this summer hasn't gone as I have planned, but I'm still here and there have been some good times as well as those which have been challenging. 

I hope you all continue to stick with me on my journey.

Best wishes, 
Amy Xx


I'm going away for a while

Hello guys,

I'd just thought I'd update you as to where I'm at. I want to give a lot of love and attention to this blog and help as many of you as possible, therefore I'm going to take some time away from writing blog posts to brainstorm and see what content I can come up with. This doesn't mean that I won't still be on twitter, or reading and replying to my emails. I will still be here to talk if you need to. I just think to get the best out of this blog I need to take some time away and come back with a fresh mind, content and perhaps a new blog design. Don't worry, it won't be long! It's just some thinking time.

I will still be available to talk and answer any PR enquiries:

Don't forget to follow me on bloglovin too, so you will be kept up to date and be aware when I write my new blog posts. To follow me, click here. 

As always, thank you so much for being so supportive of my journey. Best wishes and keep fighting the good fight,
Amy Xx

Sensitivity

Although I'd say I was quite mature for my age when growing up, this didn't mean I wasn't sensitive to what was going on around me. I had to grow up fast and therefore I didn't see things like my peers did. Those things that my friends would be upset over, hardly affected me because I had experienced much bigger things than an argument with a friend. However, even though this may be the case today, I would say that I am sensitive in another way. Although I have the maturity and strength from battling my mental illness, I do find it a struggle if things in my life are out of kilter. For example, an argument with a parent or not hearing back about an event and so forth. It's true that I won't go into complete meltdown, but it still does bother me and for a lot of people I don't think it would as much. I believe that this is just my way of coping. I feel that many years ago, I used to cope a lot better with that kind of thing, but now I tend to struggle more with it and I'm not too sure why it is. Nevertheless, I still try to work on it on a daily basis.
