Dear boy…

Please remember that behind every hello, every ‘like,’ every match, every swipe, every comment and every text, is a beautiful girl. A girl who has feelings. A girl who has been strong for too long a time. A girl who has been fighting to stay brave and keep shining even when she wants to give…

The darkness looms…

…FIND THE LIGHT… This time I knew. I could feel it coming. The darkness. What can I say? I knew it well. I’d lived with it. The way it clawed into my thoughts and told them lies. The way it left me feeling fatigued. Constantly. The way I needed to sleep so much more than…
