You Are NOT Alone


Source
So this is my last post for the next couple of days as it is Christmas Eve. A time for joy, family and happiness.

Sadly, not everyone experiences this at Christmas and for some, this time can be a dark and lonely time or a time when emotions such as depression can be heightened.

You may be one of those people. You may have come across this blog post by chance, or someone may have forwarded it to you to read.

Consider it fate.

I don't want you to feel alone this Christmas.

I don't want you to feel depressed or lonely.


If you feel that you have hit rock bottom and you feel empty inside, If you can see the lights twinkling in other peoples windows, hear the laughter of your neighbours and yet you experience no joy, as if the world is a dark place in which you see no place for yourself any more.

Or if you feel that you are ready to make a change.

I want you to pick up the phone......................

  1. This is so lovely! As someone who doesn't have any family myself, the festive period is hard for me. Luckily I get to spend it with friends - but some people don't have that luxury. It's best to remember it's only one day, and do things for yourself instead. xx

  6. This is a really important post and I wish more people were aware of these hotlines. Mental health issues seem to be growing more and more common and yet still not much is being done about them. Thank you for sharing this at Christmas!

    Wishing you a very Merry Christmas :)

  7. This is such a brilliant post and I'm sure it will help people out this time of year or any time of year. I'm lucky to have always had people around me at Christmas and that I have a supportive family.

    Have a merry Christmas!

  13. Such a lovely post. I've seen a few of these and they're 100% needed. If they only help one person that's one less person feeling low and alone.
