Why I’m Here

Hey you.

Welcome to my blog. I’m Robyn, I’m 18 years old and I feckin love glitter. I also love coffee, Karin Slaughter novels and my dog, Baxter. I have a weird love for cheesy quotes and have an all-consuming love for eating.

I’ve started this blog because I have a passion about mental health. I care about this issue so much and feel it is something that needs to become more talked about and less of a taboo. We could all do with becoming far more educated on it, myself included. We all have our dark days; our ups and downs; and times when we just need a hand squeeze, a shoulder to cry on, or a reassuring word. I want this to be a place where we can come to learn, to understand, but most importantly, to know that you are not alone. Because even if we are all alone, we’re all together in that too.

So please, read away. Educate yourself. Attempt to understand. Take some advice for yourself or a friend. Know you are not alone. Some of these articles will be written with personal experience in mind, or with experiences I have had with friends and family.

Have a coffee and cuddle your dog – it makes things better I swear! And if you don’t have a dog of your own, I might loan you mine.

“What a wonderful thought it is that some of the best days of our lives have yet to come.”

With love,

Robyn x
