Christmas always messes with my mental health. There’s so much to do, so much pressure and expectation, so much insistence that you must. have. fun. It always sends me into a bit of a downward spiral. This year we’re hosting too so that’s a whole other level of stress.
This combined with the fact I’m still trying to get my brain straight post-natally isn’t the best combination, and honestly I’ve found myself in a pretty dark place.
Usually talking honestly online would help this, however the past few days on Instagram have been horrendous and have sent me further down that spiral. So I’m walking away for a bit, for my own sake.
