You are not alone

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......................

  2. This year (and the past few) I am lucky enough to be spending xmas with people, but I have in the past had to spend it alone, and you're right you do presume everyone else is having a marvellous whilst you're stuck on your own. I've seen a lot of people posting online about 'if you know an elderly person who lives on their own, please pop in and check on them' but I think this should be extended to anyone of any age who are on their own, xmas can make many people feel vulnerable.
    Thank you so much for this!

  7. That is very thoughtful of you, as some of us are quite far from our family and can feel a bit down at this time of the year!
