Hey Everyone!

I have been using The Mix for a few weeks now and I wanted to introduce myself to the community!

I am open about my experience with anxiety and depression and I love that The Mix provides a platform where the community can share and support others experience! I am a keep activist and I hope to be involved with reducing the stigma surrounding mental health! 

Other than this, I am a student and proud pug owner! 

It's lovely to meet everyone  <3

    Hi Eleanor,

    I had to reply to this because my name is also Eleanor! If you see someone called Chocolate elf in chat that’s me! 

    Welcome to the mix! It’s a great place!

    Hey Eleanor welcome! It's been great having you here <3
    “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
