Hi I’m Tash :)

I’m 24 from London. I often overthink things and bottle stuff up until I burst (usually when I’ve had a drink). I’ve been to therapy for attachment issues that stemmed from my childhood. I lost a loved one when I was at a vulnerable age of 18 and I still don’t think I’ve accepted it. I’ve decided to join this site so I have somewhere to share my thoughts and feelings rather than putting it on my boyfriend, family or friends.

I’m not sure how to use the site so if this is the wrong place for an introduction I do apologise I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it soon. Any tips will be great!!

    Welcome. You are in the right place to share you introduction:) also in the right supportive safe place/community to seek support & share what feels comfortable with you and we will be willing to listen, try to help & we care. 
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley
