Hello everyone, how are you all?
This weekend I am at my grandmother’s house again, together with plenty of aunts, uncles and cousins, for a big spring clean of my grandmother’s attic. For now it’s just me that’s arrived, so my grandmother and I are at the quiet before the storm.
Over the last year I’ve really come to appreciate the importance of family when dealing with mental illness. Without them I don’t know what would have happened to me, but I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today in my mind.
Whether it’s your real family, or the family of people you have chosen to surround yourself with, it’s so important to keep them close when you are struggling (and otherwise!), because they might just be the safety net which catches you.
If there is one thing which can bring you wellness, it really is your people.
I need to run now, people are arriving soon and I’m helping my grandmother set the table, just wanted to quickly check in with you all.
PS: I’m considering moving from wordpress.com to wordpress.org, does anyone have any experience with this? Was it a good choice?
