Hi, I'm Mimi!

mimimimi Posts: 20 Boards Initiate
I joined The Mix today. I discovered the group chat and everyone was so friendly! At first I was worried I wouldn't fit in because everyone seemed to know each other already but I felt very welcomed so thank you to everyone in general chat tonight!
I have really been struggling with my mental health for a while and never had very good support be that through friends or professional help. I hope this can be a good space for me. I already feel a little less lonely than I did before I joined so that's a good start!
I have a dog called Sam and I am a student. I have lots of house plants. I love reading, musicals, art galleries, exploring new cities and I love the beach! I love getting to know new people and I look forward to joining in more here! 

Peace begins with a smile :)

    Hey Mimi. Glad you feel welcomed already!  I have a dog too. He's called teddy.
     Everyone proper kind on here so I'm sure you'll love it. :) 
    “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

    Aw welcome Mimi! 

    I'm glad chat went so well, it's important to note that everyone felt the same way too even I did at one point! 

    But everyone is welcome and fits in x


    Sorry to hear about the struggle with mental health but I hope this space can provide you with a bit of company during these uncertain times as well as support.

    Any thing you want to talk about just make a thread and we will listen :)

    Ahhh thank you everyone! So happy to see all your responses! 

    @BubblesGoesBoo I recently read How to stop time by Matt Haig and it was really good! I'd love to live on an island, in in the midlands so the furthest away from beaches that I could ☹️
    @GreenTea I have lots of succulents and cacti inside, but I've also just started growing some sunflowers too and I have 3 really tall ones! I have raspberries and herbs and lots of flowers growing outside. My favourites are the forget-me-nots. 

    Thank you everyone for being so friendly!! 😊
