To start off with I’d like to answer the questions given to me by Em.
What inspired your blog and the beginnings of it?
I started my blog after a very traumatic time in my life where I was grieving the loss of my childhood and the lack of healthy parental love, after learning that both my parents are pathologically ill. My Dad attempted suicide shortly before I started my blog, so blogging gave me an outlet for all my thoughts & feelings, my grief & complex trauma.
Is there anything you’ve held back from posting for any reason at all?
The only thing I’ve held back is my real name & identity as my mother is a life a coach and I don’t want to make things too uncomfortable in the long run with talking openly about the abuse. I still have to protect myself.
What are your favourite tags or categories to look at?
I usually look up complex trauma, art & design, art therapy and any mental health categories.
Tell me 3 things you love about yourself.
I am very affectionate & empathetic, I am particularly good at making a home cosy & fragrant and I love my creative side.
Is there any particular post you’re proud of that you want everyone to check out?
