Happily Never After

Why aren't movie characters real?

Okay, so I accept and acknowledge that Jack Dawson, Noah Calhoun, Alex Stewart and any character that Channing Tatum has played do not exist and are only fictional, but why? It's characters like Superman, Harry Potter and The Doctor that cannot ever be possible, but why is being a genuine, lovely, caring person who loves every bone of someone's being, and just wants to love them and wants them to be happy, so impossible to find or be? Surely these characters were based on real people, and if that's what girls and guys wanted then, why don't people want that now?

The culture that we live in now makes these characters impossible to even imagine. This culture only praises the 'LADS' who sleep with and fuck over girls by the dozen, with their idols being Gaz and Scotty T, which in return is making girls idolise the Geordie Shore girls and other similar types of people, i.e. unhealthily skinny, fake, slutty idiots.

Why do people not want the movie-style, fairytale relationship? Because they don't exist, right? Well yes, but only because these type of people do not exist anymore. Call me old fashioned, but what is so terrifying about only talking to one girl/guy at a time and actually committing to them? What is the point of 'seeing each other'? You're either together, or you're not. I mean, there's playing hard to get, there's the chase that initially makes getting to know each other fun, but then that guy gradually becomes 'busy' and that means too busy to talk to you, even though you know he's speaking to other girls.

When Taylor said all this, I wanted to teleport all of my exes to London to listen to her.


I'm not saying girls are perfect either, I'm sure plenty of guys have been messed about by girls just like the guys mess around the girls, and obviously there are the few anomalies who are actually lovely guys and girls, but they've already been nabbed because someone has seen the good in them, and I am horrendously jealous of those people, but I can only speak from personal experience. And I'm not going to lie, I do speak to guys, I get with people when I'm out, I'm not a prude, but it's really just because I have no other option. Maybe I've just had a bunch of tossers in my time, but frankly, I'm yet to see any other type. There was one guy who was so close to it, to sound cliché, I actually thought he was different and something good was happening, but that quickly came crashing down after the 'one month free trial', that I apparently have written on my head, was over.

It may be sad and pathetic, and show that there's obviously something wrong with me, that I haven't had a proper boyfriend for 4 years, and those 4 years have been where people have told me to just 'have fun', but speaking to multiple guys just to be fucked over after a couple of weeks for a skinnier, prettier, funnier girl every single time, is not what I class as 'fun'. I would much rather be with one person for months where we actually like each other for who we are and want to make each other happy, that's what I would call 'fun'. And anyway, these people that tell me to just 'have fun' forget that as a girl, if I was to sleep with a number of guys, I would then be a slag/slut/whore, and that is not fun either.

Can I marry the guy who wrote this?

Why does nobody want happily ever after anymore?!

Mental illness vs. emotions

"OMG I'm so depressed that I can't go out this weekend!" - no, you're not depressed, you're just annoyed.

I really think that part of the problem with people's understanding of mental health is how it's spoken about in the media/tv/films etc. People use 'depressed' and 'anxious' as moods the same way they use 'happy' and 'sad', but they're not. It's the same thing with calling people 'anorexic' as a compliment as the Kardashians have been caught in hot water for doing multiple times. Talking about mental illnesses like this makes them seem like trivial things that aren't important, aren't terrifying, aren't serious.

There is a massive difference between feeling sad and having Depression; there's a massive difference between feeling stressed or anxious and having Anxiety. I guess this kinds of contradicts my previous comment about 'anxious' not being a mood, but people can definit…

Anxiety & Me: having the BBC pay for therapy is nice, but is it real?

Oh hey, me again.

I watched the BBC programme last month called Anxiety and Me featuring Nadiya Hussain and I thought I would write a blog post about it, because I know my opinion is so important and people live based on what I say (I'm joking, just in case you can't sense the sarcasm there)! Just for anyone who is new here (hi!), I have been diagnosed with Anxiety since 2015 but I think I've actually had it for a lot longer than four years.

Overall, I thought it was great. I thought it gave a really good understanding of how Anxiety can feel for someone, and even my boyfriend of nearly 4 years said he learned more about the illness and how it can make me feel. So clearly, it was very informative and clear. I loved how raw and real it was: I started crying after the first five minutes because it hit me so hard. (Disclaimer: I'm going to openly talk about things that happen in the programme so if you wanted to watch it first go and do that now!)

At the start when Nadiya…

Bringing back the fire in her eyes

Oh hey thereeee, don't know if you remember me?! It's been nearly 4 months since I wrote a post: life's been a bit crazy, so I hope you're ready for a big one! This is my end of year/end of decade (say what?!?!) post, where I want to just round everything up and leave a lot of things in this year, and not have it follow me into the next.

So this year, there have been some pretty big changes to life: I moved house in January, started a job which I'm loving, went on a couple of holidays, and then shit hit the fan big time - I made the decision to leave my boyfriend of 3 and a half years.

I'm not going to go into all the details even though I'd love to spill the tea so those who haven't asked could hear my side, but the majority has been put to bed, and I don't want this to be a bashing post. However, it was fucking awful. I'd been unhappy for a while, probably for about 5 months before I actually cut the cord because I kept telling myself I was be…
