- Helplines for Xmas, if needed
Not trying to put a downer on any festivities, but like myself, some others might be feeling the strain at this time of year. I saw this list of helplines and thought I’d post it up incase someone needs to talk, or knows someone that might need to talk.
There are so many great organisations out there to help tackle all sorts of issues. From loneliness to depression and bereavement etc. Free helplines just a call away.
If this post just helps one person, I feel that it is worthwhile posting.

Good work, Gnusmas; and just remember starting a conversation with a stranger can be enough: Helping someone on public transport, having a random laugh with someone, exchanging a casual smile, finding amusement in the little things and most of all: It’s never…NEVER….as bad as you think it is. Take this from someone who suffers from depression and who’s mind automatically goes to the darkest places.Posted 10 months ago
