My First Article For Metro

The last few weeks have been a little bit of a whirlwind.

I’m overwhelmed by the feedback and support I’ve received about my blog, and the decision to take the plunge into freelance writing.

Yesterday was very exciting as my very first article for Metro was published.

It’s no secret that I feel strongly about the need to end the stigma surrounding mental illness. So it’s amazing that I’m now able to write about this and be given opportunities to have my voice heard, which can hopefully make a difference.

I wrote about the widely circulated quote: “Nobody will love you until you love yourself.”

I feel very strongly that this quote is not true and that false messages like these, disguised as ‘inspirational,’ are damaging to those already struggling.

Everyone deserves to be cared for, so quotes like ‘Nobody will love you until you love yourself’ are damaging.

I’m still on cloud nine and I can’t wait to get to work on my next article.
