This year’s theme is ‘young people and mental health in a changing world’… and it really got me thinking about the mental health challenges that lie ahead for my younger brother and sister, aged 14 and 10 respectively.
This is my apology, because today I slipped up. I took my position as someone who talks a lot about mental health and was careless in the moment of my own emotions.
Before I launch into this, I just want to say that I don’t necessarily agree with the sentiments in this post title, but I would be lying if I said it hasn’t crossed my mind.
Sometimes I write poems.
Firstly, remember that feelings don’t just pop out of nowhere - THOUGHTS create feelings.
