DON’T JUST SETTLE

UNFULFILLING RELATIONSHIPS CAN MAKE YOU DEPRESSED

Don't Just Settle

My twenties was a dire decade in terms of relationships (not that you could really call them that). Gosh, my head must really have been in a bad place to attract such pathetic idiots! I would attract this type of vile man like a beacon. Although I did have quite low self-esteem and a poor […]

STORY CORNER: A NEW SHORE (A POEM)

Story Corner: A New Shore (A Poem)

I step over warm golden sand, And gingerly dip in my toe Into the turquoise water. It’s numbingly cold, But in it I resolve to go.   Its temperature feels like icicles, Their daggers stop my heart. But from this familiar comforting shore, I must surely, for my own sake, depart.   For I have […]

STORY CORNER: A LEAP OF FAITH (A POEM)

Story Corner: A Leap Of Faith (A Poem)

“Can you do this?” they ask me. But I am filled with doubt. One hundred reasons flood my brain Why I should sit this out.   I don’t think I am good enough And my confidence is lacking. I don’t think I’m fit for the task, Despite their support and backing.   For there are […]

STORY CORNER: THE NEW CHAPTER (A POEM)

Story Corner: The New Chapter (A Poem)

This chapter of my life is full. Full of regrets, discarded opportunities, Misery, anger and sorrow.   If only I had done this! If only I hadn’t done that! If only I was treated better! If only I was brave enough…   The tragic list goes on and on, Enough to give even the most […]

STORY CORNER: THE BACKSTABBER (A POEM)

Backstabber - A Poem

You pretend to be nice And smile in my face. You act like you’re accommodating, Tolerant and full of grace.   You laugh at my jokes And give me a hug. You believe me naïve And think I’m a mug.   You are waving your knife, Waiting eagerly to attack. You want to embrace me […]

STORY CORNER: DIARY OF AN ABUSED LOVER (CHAPTER 34)

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

21st April 2017 Finding it extremely hard to concentrate at work. Keep making mistakes and staring into space. Am I doing the right thing? Why am I questioning myself so much? If I say I’ll do something, I should commit to it. Spent lunchtime picking at my food. My hunger has been replaced with dread. […]

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

14th April 2017 I feel sad. I had my last session with Nikki today. She’s hopeful that I can turn my life around. I hope I can too. It’s gonna be odd not talking through things every Friday evening any more. I feel a little unsure of myself. I know she’s given me explicit instructions […]

STORY CORNER: DIARY OF AN ABUSED LOVER (CHAPTER 32)

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

31st March 2017 I only have 2 more weeks left with Nikki. I do feel sad about it – she was great to talk to about my problems. I told her what happened to me yesterday on the train. She thinks that he is perhaps trying to remind me of how we first met. She […]

STORY CORNER: DIARY OF AN ABUSED LOVER (CHAPTER 31)

Unhappy woman in an abusive relationship

4th March 2017 The British Museum is absolutely HUGE!! I really loved it – I think it’s my second favourite museum after Le Louvre. We did arrive later than I had initially hoped, around 1:30pm. Yep, that was my fault. I took longer than usual getting ready. I’m trying to look after my appearance again […]
