  • Where Shame Belongs.

    Where Shame Belongs.

    All because someone stopped for me at the crossing. All because a friend said they liked juice and I had none in the fridge. All because I ended my txt with a full stop. All because of shame.


  • I am not sure I want to be a doctor anymore.

    I am not sure I want to be a doctor anymore.

    I am not sure I want to be a doctor anymore. The pride of knowing for certain that I am making a difference only seems to highlight the reality of inevitable relapses when the biggest issues impacting people are completely out of my control.


  • In my 30th year my body betrayed me.

    In my 30th year my body betrayed me.

    It is pretty hard to feel sexy when you are in pain, when you wake up and you are already sore, when simple movements constantly ache.


  • Holding space and supporting the mental wellbeing of our loved ones.

    Holding space and supporting the mental wellbeing of our loved ones.

    urthermore, the concept of self-awareness touches on your ability to know your own limits and capacity to support someone else. What are your needs? What are your boundaries? Continuing to pour from an empty cup is unsustainable regardless of how much you want to help another person.


  • Therapy is hard.

    Therapy is hard.

    Therapy is hard. I am not sure I realised how much so.


  • Just a few worries.

    Just a few worries.

    I worry a lot. I worry about wasting my life. About not reaching my potential. Of missing out. I worry about spending my days doing things that don’t actually matter to me.


  • A Father’s Love

    A Father’s Love

    And it turns out, it is not so small after all, it is not as healed as I pretended, it is not as minor as I had hoped. And it really fucking hurts.


  • Another Letter to Myself.

    Another Letter to Myself.

    An ode to myself. Your now is a testament to the person you have intentionally and deliberately cultivated.


  • Embracing Loneliness.

    Embracing Loneliness.

    It will be gradual, but you’ll stop thinking about how much better activities would be with someone else. You’ll start enjoying them even when it’s just you. You’ll stop delaying things till you have someone to share it with. I promise you, it gets better.


  • How to manifest the love you deserve.

    How to manifest the love you deserve.

    Think of your manifestation list as a guide; both for the universe to funnel an abundance of love towards you, but also as a template for what you are ready and willing to allow yourself to receive.
