I'd heard of Bréne Brown before of course. Friends had recommended her books, I’d seen her referred to in interviews, but I’d never been prompted to pick up one of her books. That was until Monday. This Monday.
If I think back four years I’d never even heard the words self-care before. But that was before my diagnosis with depression, pre-medication and, well, pre-me really, and before you get your hopes up and skip to the end I haven’t got any short cuts or perfect solutions when it comes to looking after yourself, but I do have experience and as my parents always told me, that counts for a lot.
I believe it's common practise to make your first blog post one about yourself, so as much as I prefer to buck traditions I'm gonna go with this one. Bear with me.
