Hello, my name is Karlena Clifford. A twenty-something studying Psychology and Counselling. I’m by no means an expert but I have a big heart and a mind that thinks more than it should.
I want to write about the things that we find most difficult to talk about, our anxieties, fears and insecurities by sharing mine with you. But I will also write about all aspects of life, the highs and lows of being human and things that make me happy.
Mental illness can be very isolating and I want to create a place where we can feel safe, like a blanket on winter’s night, a community of meaningful understanding and a place to feel less alone. I believe the world can be brighter with love, understanding and compassion. And the only way we can build this understanding is by reaching out to each other and sharing our stories.
I have recently discovered a love of writing and words which I hope to share with you here. Writing has been a release for me, as though a part of me which was once caged has been freed.
I hope you will join me on our journey and find my words somewhat useful.
There will be new posts every Friday!
Thank you for being a part of what I’m trying to create for us.
