Before we start, i know i need a snappier title, i’m just suffering from a horrendous dry spell creativity wise. Bear with me, I’ll think of something!
Anyway, welcome along. I’m Pete, I’m 37 years old, have a wife, 2 kids, a dog and a pretty kick ass life.
I also have sometimes crippling anxiety and depression which i manage via self care, meditation, various tablets (all legal) and most recently CBD oil.
Now being a man, I suffer from an additional stigma, in that traditionally, men are the ones who are strong, who are somehow infallible.
That is, of course, bullshit.
You will recognise the Alpha Male stereotype, you’ll mostly find them wearing t shirts a size too small, picking fights with inanimate objects after a couple of beers with “the ladddddddds”. These people are the minority.
Most blokes, although they wont admit it, struggle sometimes. They aren’t able to cope sometimes. They arent always strong and can be a big bundle of emotions. If your reading this thinking “Thats me” then stick with me, or even if your just interested, keep reading.
You see. its ok.
Its ok not to be strong, its ok to have what i call “a wobble”. Its ok to shed a tear. Its fine to get help.
Over the coming weeks, months and years i’ll be blogging constantly about different stuff. If noone reads it? Totally fine. I’m kind of doing this for me as a cathartic outlet.
Sometimes i’ll be silly, sometimes i’ll be deep. Their will be triggers (i’ll warn you).
So. Lets see where we end up shall we.
Until next time
