So yes, I have decided to run the London Marathon next year for the charity Mind. After successfully raising money for the 10k great Newham London run, I thought it would be brilliant to run for the same charity that plays a huge role in some people's lives.
We already know that millions of people go through stress, anxiety and depression with no one to talk to, and trust me, it can be difficult. I've been there. With no one to talk to it feels like your world is caving in and there's no way out. Thankfully, when I get my bouts of social anxiety and down days, I have a wonderful friend who has been there for me 24/7 and nothing is too much. Many other brilliant friends are around to support me every step of the way but telling someone is always the hardest part.
You're scared that your friends and family may judge you for being distant or erratic in the decisions you make because of what's going through your head. They won't. But if you feel as though they will, Mind, the mental health charity is there to help you every step of the way. They will provide a listening ear when you need it most, with no one judging you.
It is extremely important for people to have someone to talk to and Mind offers this. Mind offers a service where you are able to talk to someone about any problems you have, may that be stress from work, school or anxiety and depression. They can provide support and are brilliant in doing so.
