56. Blaithin Car­ney Artist

Hot Press - - 100 Voices On Mental Health -

We live in a world where ex­pec­ta­tions are so high. The most se­vere critic is usu­ally our­selves. Ev­ery­body has dark days, and on these days, you want to re­treat. But these are the days you need to reach out, and try to speak to your fam­ily and friends. It al­ways helps. I tell my chil­dren that it’s ok to feel sad some­times. It’s part of the hu­man con­di­tion and spec­trum of emo­tions. And that if they need to talk about it, then I’m here for them. We’re hu­man and we’re fal­li­ble. But that’s also part of the won­der of it all. * Blaithin Car­ney, from Kil­dare, scored an Ir­ish No.1 sin­gle with ‘Rome’.
