But I feel okay telling you that my early adulthood has not been easy. It has often felt characterized less by my successes than a string of traumatic (not a word I use lightly) experiences which I have not always been a willing participant in. This is not to say I’ve never fucked up or made self-sabotaging decisions- I absolutely have. But it has taken me a long time to accept that I have not always deserved the treatment I have received, particularly in a sexual and romantic context. Very rarely, in fact.

A few days ago I received my final classification for my Broadcast Journalism degree. After a lot of very hard work and discipline, I thankfully graduated with a 2:1. Not the highest grade, but much better than the 2:2 or 3rd I would have received if I hadn’t have pulled myself together at several stages during the last two years.

I hope you continue to pop in while I share my life

I did not expect sharing my trauma story with strangers to be a foundational aspect of my adult life. Especially while entering the mental health profession. I feel like most therapists do not go there on a public level to maintain a sense of professionalism, but, fuck it.
