Around the age of 14 I was diagnosed with depression, a lack of wanting to talk to physical people pushed me into expressing my feelings with words. Maybe it was something to do with not having to see peoples reactions to the dark thoughts in my head or maybe it was the ability to have a second to think about what I was saying before I actually said it. From writing about my mental health struggles I found that I really enjoyed writing- about my opinions, about the things I thought about, about my experiences. It was 2014 when I decided to take my writing public through The Introvert Archive, at the time I was embarrassed to be doing something that wasn't recognised as normal then- writing my opinions and sharing them online, therefore I didn't promote my blog at all to begin with, not even my own Mum had any idea about it.
After high school I decided that writing was something I loved to do and I genuinely wanted to peruse my love of sharing my opinions and experiences. For the past two years I have been working hard to create content and promote my blog to people who have similar ideas and interests as me. My style of writing can be described as a “no bullshit” approach, I prefer to tell things exactly how it is, rather than trying to sugar coat it. I believe that if you are going to attempt to influence people with your writing you need to be 100% truthful, there is nothing worse than putting your trust In someone only to be misled.
Blogging and writing isn’t my only job, I have also stepped into a role in the family business. Family is very important to me, as you can see through some blog posts- I like to spend a lot of time with my family. As a small, family run business I stepped into the role of office manager, which allows me to divide my time between both working and writing. This however, would never have been possible if my parents had not been so supportive of my writing dreams.
In all, writings if something I love to do and often my saviour from the outside world. I will continue to strive to create a community on The Introvert Archive who are always in the know about lifestyle, health, mental health and up to date with major world happenings.
