  • ♡ The paradox of being an introvert... ♡ You love your own company and you love the long silences that you can leave hanging in the air for as long as you want or fill with any number of melodious sounds. You love that you can just be and not have to worry about trying to be anything that you're not and you love that you have the freedom to create things without judgement, or any unwanted background noise. ♡ But the thing is, while I do I love my own company, in fact I actually need alone time to be a functioning human, I do still get lonely. ♡ I still want the hugs that last a beat too long but neither party really minds because they're just happy to get to be with the other. I still want to be in a room that's filled with laughter at things that we know no one else would find funny, but they're hilarious to us and that's really all that matters. ♡ I still want to go out and meet new people that make me wish I'd met them sooner so that I could get to enjoy them for as long as possible. I still want to fall in love so deeply that I can no longer imagine a world without them in. ♡ I will always need time on my own to recharge, it's part of the introvert package deal, but I'm starting to think that maybe I should have days, or even just moments, where I pretend that I'm an extrovert and see where that leads. Because it's nice to enjoy your own company. But it's even nicer to know that there's someone in the world that's ready and excited to spend time with you when you're ready.
♡ Does this resonate with any of you? Are any of you introverts that love alone time but also get lonely? Talk to me in the comments, let's get a lil introvert party going on!
Lots of love,
Anna x

  • Today was such  a reflective day. 3 months ago I said goodbye to someone who I thought I would miss and part of my life for years. 
However, it turns  out they was probably the most toxic thing in my life going and very horrible and negative towards me. Without this and I am the happiest I have ever been. 
Granted I have been pushing myself to go out a lot in recent weeks fuelled by caffeine but without stress it seems to be a lot easier for my body. Uni placement work has been a struggle but hopefully I will focus soon.I’ve found it easier to make new friends, realise: friendship isn’t about someone getting their own way all the time either. 
I haven’t been on my mental health medication for around 2 weeks , which obviously is a concern to doctors but i feel the calmest I have in a long time and a new mental health assessment on Friday will be interesting. 
A lot of people ask me what europhia feels like and to be honest it is like an intense rush that you know once you come down from is going to be a b*tch. 
Also to the people that are naive to believe that borderline personality disorder is going to cause me to  be a murderer - I don’t tend to like people enough to want to cause them harm let alone murder them.

If you suffer from depression or a personality disorder simple things can make a lot of difference. Here are the 10 things keeping me calm - reading fiction and self-care books
- bubble baths
- essential oils
-creative writing
- drawing -colouring - movies and tv series
- blogging - being around positive people - having a job ————————————————

  • °REMEMBER THIS?°
.
.
❓ Way back in November before Baby M arrived, (which seems like a lifetime ago) I posted this infographic and asked you guys how it measured up to your birth experiences. You all know I had been practising hypnobirthing and I well expected to be in the 66% of spontaneous labours...
.
.
🤦‍♀️ We weren't. .
.
😖 My birth experience couldn't of been further than what I'd hoped for. I had envisioned a calm pain relief free water birth where I breathed my baby into the world.
.
.
🤦‍♀️ I didn't.
.
.
💉 Instead, I ended up in as one of the 5% of emergency c sections following a failed induction. This was down to prolonged ruptures of the membranes (my waters broke but labour didn't start).
.
.🤔 Coming home I felt like I'd been knocked sideways. Nothing had happened as I expected and I was tearful, very tearful. I felt vulnerable. But I was so grateful for the amazing staff at the NHS who cared for me and Baby M.
.
.
🤷 So why am I sharing this? As I mentioned in November... We can't plan birth. We just have to go with the flow. I don't intend to scare people and I haven't decided if I will share my full birth story yet... I just want to facilitate open and honest conversations about birth.
.
.
💭 That's not to say my birth was negative. I reached out to @thepositivebirthcompany and as Siobhan suggested I will be accessing the birth reflections service at my hospital. Just to help me process this all a little bit more. So far...5 weeks have already passed and I'm starting to feel ok about it.
.
.
🤔 My personal advice to others who haven't experienced birth would be not to focus on the birth too much. No matter how you give birth the outcome is the same. You get to meet your beautiful little person and life changes forever 💕

  • Peeking around this large board to wish you all a Happy Valentines Day, or just a Happy Thursday❤
Use today to practice self love as well as sharing your love with others, remember loving yourself should always comes first and is not selfish. You will be able to love others whole heartedly when you have love for yourself too.
Unrelated note, I posted a blog today. It is a little life/mental health update and it took the encouragement from some of you to actually post it. So thank you for that guys🙈
I am sending so much love to each and every one of you today and every day!
