Hot Press - - 100 Voices On Mental Health -

I suf­fer some­times with anx­i­ety, par­tic­u­larly so­cially. In re­cent months, ad­mit­ting that and con­fronting it has im­proved how I make friends and talk to new peo­ple. It's al­low­ing me to come out of my com­fort zone – and for it to some­times be­come my com­fort zone.

I've learned hav­ing the wrong peo­ple around you, who won't lis­ten to these things, isn’t a good idea. It's im­por­tant to talk about your strug­gles just as much as your tri­umphs – and find­ing the right per­son to lis­ten, no mat­ter how mi­nor or mas­sive your prob­lem is, is key!

Your men­tal health is your health. It should come first.
