As I've grown up, I've met more people who are struggling with themselves, with their mental health, depression, anxiety and their daily battle to stay alive. In Nepal, a recent news article suggests that the country has seen a 13% increase in suicide rate in the past four years. It's disheartening to know that so many are suffering alone. We have a huge shift to bring in the way we deal and view mental health. We need that conversation to happen as soon as possible in Nepal, UK - everywhere, before more lives are lost. If you have key links, information, or believe you can offer help via the blog - then please do write and reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. PS.

I have NEVER been able to stay silent where there is injustice! Pictured is Anthony Williams aka @medicalmedium, he is my “Health Hero!” Since the age of four he has been moved by Spirit to show people the path to wellness. He NEVER quits-even when others debase him. I consider it an absolute honor and privilege to be a light warrior sharing what knowledge I’ve gleaned, then people can do their own due diligence! #knowledgeispower#speakup#healing

I've always been scared of public speaking. Of speaking up in general really. I was the kid who never put their hand up in class even though I mostly always knew the answer. And it still scares me to give solo presentations and to be 100% honest with people in my life about how I feel about something.
As I commit to wanting to write and speak more I'm trying to understand why I'm so scared of speaking up.
A lot of it comes from being a kid. From feeling like my voice didn't matter. From being the odd one out when I did voice my opinions and views. From being rewarded for getting good grades in academic subjects that mainly involved writing. From not being encouraged to speak up.
And so the pattern starts... Cue a variety of life and work situations where I felt like my voice wasn't heard or acknowledged, and where I held back what I really wanted to say. I'm trying to break that now and take ownership for voicing my views clearly and compassionately.
I know and believe I'm a great a writer but I still don't believe that about being a speaker. I'm working on changing that too 💙 Any tips greatly welcome!
