    Day 26: 22th January 2017 (whoops a little behind, so will do the posts for the days I forgot to)
    Today went crap, just so fed up of this family and the sooner I can move out, the better.

    What I am grateful for...
    (I know i say the say again and again but its the simple things in life that are important)
    General things:
    • The roof over my head and the food and drink I am provided with.
    • School lessons
    • My lover for being there for me.
    • For my few good friends in life.
    • My brother and me are getting back to getting on better.

    A random act of kindness I've done.
    • Cooked dinner again (I guess)

    A random act of kindness someone has done for me...
    • Offered to help by with stuff.

    Things I did well...
    • Not shout or be angry at my brother.

    What I've achieved today...
    • To calm my mood down.
    • Be nice to my brother.
    • Over wise nothing much.

    What I've done to look after my mental health...
    • Guess shut myself away from the arguments helped.

    Something I could improve on...
    • Learn to stop getting so distracted.
    • Learn to calm and relax more.
    • Learn to ignore what rubbish the family say to me.

    Something I have to look forward to...
    • Getting the results so i can work on what to do next.
    • Trying to get into Uni.
    • The future with my bf in it. (hopefully, fingers crossed)
    • Escaping from the town and hopefully if everything goes right move away when I finish Sixth Form.


    Something that made me smile...
    • Speaking to the one person who can make me smile no matter how i am feeling.
    • Thinking about the good in my life (even if they are small things)

    Day 27: 23th January 2017
    Today went crap again tbh. Swear birthdays always leave me in a mess, and people wonder why I ain't a fan of them. Was forced and had pressured put on me to sing and had a microphone shoved in my face but I refused which didn't go down well. Spent the night crying and just feeling rather down, and don't even have a clear reason why. But I am so glad I have someone to talk to about how I am and that and I know they will always try and cheer me up and be supportive which is good.

    What I am grateful for...
    (I know i say the say again and again but its the simple things in life that are important)
    General things:
    • The roof over my head and the food and drink I am provided with.

    • For my few good friends in life.
    • My brother and me are getting back to getting on better.

    A random act of kindness I've done.
    • Cooked/made a massive birthday buffet as my brother requested.
    • Help bake my brother's birthday cake.
    • Made some pizza swirls which are his favourite.

    A random act of kindness someone has done for me...
    • Not really anything tbh.

    Things I did well...
    • Didnt burn anything for dinner, I guess :dontknow:
    • Researching more into my uni choices and that.

    What I've achieved today...
    • .Not much to be honest.

    What I've done to look after my mental health...
    • Guess crying helps :dontknow:.

    Something I could improve on...
    • Learn to stop getting so distracted.
    • Learn to calm and relax more.

    • Learn to not let birthdays get to me.
