10 Mental Health Reminders From My Puppper

Most people who know me will define me as unconventional with a dash of weirdness. I have now learnt to embrace the quirky side of things, but growing up, it was a struggle. Relating to people (and other kids) was the bane of my existence; and things that were important to them I just wouldn’t understand. Everyone brushed it off as just being an introvert. It was an isolating experience, living in a world where no one got me and all I wanted was to be understood and accepted.  Things changed when I got my first dog. It was one...

What My Therapist Taught Me About Being A Therapist

“One thing I’ve realised in this process of therapy, is that one should really want to change, why else would we pay as well as experience the discomfort of going through it all? Therapy is not a very comfortable process!” I may have felt myself cringe when I heard my friend say this, but I'd be lying if I said that I didn’t relate with the statement. As a therapist, seeking out my own therapist and enrolling for therapy was a rather difficult process for me (a nod to my ingrained stigmatisation of therapy). I took the route of “handling...

Good Intentions aren't an Excuse for Bad Behaviour

I believe that we are all inherently good people, and we just make mistakes from time to time - but wait, hear me out - we ultimately reach a point where we learn what was right for us, even if it wasn't what we needed in that unfortunate moment. Now, for some background context, I am surrounded by mostly emotionally mature people and they do leave me in awe most of the time. Yes, I know, I have very healthy friends who are inherently kind.  The point of this wasnt to brag, but if I do have to, I can...

Fight It Out

I’ve  always had a lot of friends - I know this might sound a little boastful but well, it’s true. I believe I am an extrovert and being around people makes me happy. My weekends have always been full and I wouldn’t have it any other way But having spent years around my (several) social circles, there’s always been a thought that’s bothered me, something I think about even now : I never fight with my friends. If (and when) I do, it always ends up being blown out of proportion. I’ve realised I alway rationalised my anger by telling...

Bump Out of the Closet

I’m pregnant. Take a moment and let that sink in, I would understand it if it takes you a while, it took me a few months to fully absorb this reality. Now, unlike most 30 year olds, this was not planned (which explains my rather slow processing). The two red lines on the home pregnancy test made certain that my drop in energy levels, excessive sleep, and brain fog was indeed biological and not psychological. Honestly, you would think 33 year olds would be sensible enough to practice “safe sex” but lust, love and other such things… can make the...
