I honestly didn't realise how difficult adulthood was going to be. Alot of the time I feel as though I‘m just floating through life, not really sure I'm doing it correctly and hoping to God that I don't break anything along the way.
So where did it all begin?
In 2011, I left home at the tender age of 17. As you can imagine I had to grow up very fast. With this new found freedom came bills, rent and a whole host of responsibilities. As if leaving home wasn't enough, life chucked me another curve ball and I was diagnosed with Anxiety. Unfortunately this led to me dropping out of college and I could barely hold down a full time job.
Fast forward a few years (and several bumps in the road), I managed to get my life back on track. I eventually went on to graduate with a First Class Honours in Clinical & Community Psychology, woo, woo. Life smoothed out for a bit and then suddenly my long term relationship came to an end. It was at that point that reality truly sunk in that I was now alone on this journey called Life.
I kept thinking to myself that there's no way I could be the only person struggling to navigate their way through adulthood. So I started writing my first ever blog: The Joys of Being Twenty Something. This proved a hit among my readers but I quickly realised that it wasn't just twenty-somethings trying to figure out life, and so The Reality Check was born.
I'm not perfect and I have made my fair share of mistakes along the way. At the end of the day, I'm just your regular-schmegular twenty something from East London winging it. I'm hoping that by sharing my perspective of life it'll help you on your journey. And if not, hopefully you'll get a cheap laugh or two out of my tales of adulting.
So that's me and my story in a nutshell, nothing more, nothing less. Welcome to The Reality Check!
Feel free to get in touch to share your stories or ask me questions, I'd love to hear from you.
