Revel In Your Psychosis
"We're all equally fucked up some only hide it better"
I don't usually talk about my job on here but I really wanted to share a bit about this amazing training I had on Wednesday at work on schizophrenia and hearing voices because it BLEW my mind. Wow, people really go through some shit in this world and hearing others' personal experiences was astounding! We did this exercise where you pretend you are at a job interview and are trying to answer questions but then you have two people whispering in your ear saying really horrible things like "you're a whore, you're evil"...I genuinely couldn't answer any questions and was so flustered. It must be so hard to live your life like that. I don't think I could manage. The whole experience both saddened me (I cried twice in the training...how embarrassing) and inspired me in how resilient and strong humans are! It reignited my love of working within mental health and helping people, reminding me why I got into this job in the first place. It highlighted the importance of not judging others because you really have no idea what they are going through and while a certain behaviour might seem odd to you it could make perfect sense to that person at that moment. It also encouraged me to try to think about and work through some of my own personal issues myself. I so wish you guys could have experienced it...it was that goodl!
Right, moving on haha. Might seem odd that I started off talking about psychosis but I actually thought it would flow quite well with the dress in that this outfit is kinda dark and moody, but then also has the lighter bits to it where you see the person underneath. Going too deep? Ok reel it in Elvira haha. But seriously, this outfit rocks! Felt so edgy wearing it out last weekend. I went to Beat on Saturday night and fitted right in cos the whole atmosphere was quite psychedelic and my look had the right amount of edge to be on trend but also effortless. So on point!
Anyhoo, I'm gonna sneak off for a little siesta now. Shhh, don't tell anyone. I went out for dinner and drinks last night and didn't get home till so late. I'm a little hungover and super tired so I really need a snooze. Especially as I'm going to the cinema later to watch The Boy Next Door. God, I just love JLo in thriller movies...can't wait! Right, goodnight guys ;) xo
