    Who is the strongest person you know ? Is it yourself ? Or is it someone else ? How would you support yourself if you were going through something ?

    Probably my cousin, and also my grandpa. I'm very like both of them in a lot of ways and deal with stuff a lot of the same but they're both so so strong. For supporting myself, I think the most important thing I've learnt is just to let myself feel. Bottling things up only works for so long and even if I don't understand why I'm feeling how I do that doesn't make it any less valid. If I don't look after me I can't look after anyone else, and sometimes you just have to put yourself first. You are most important, no-one else

    Myself, and also my grandma. She was kicked out of home when her older brother returned because there wasn't enough room for her and her mother favoured the sons. She had to stay at YWCA when she was just a teenager, got a job and earned her own money. Ever since then she didn't have to rely on anyone but herself, she left a large inheritance when she died but only because she worked so hard to get it herself - she was very clever and switched on about the antiques trade and housing market, knowing when to purchase specific goods and how to get the best deals. She persevered when she had no one and I'm so proud of her.
