    I’m not really sure what to write, but I didn’t want to read and run. It sounds as though a lot of things are getting you down, and while I have different things, I know how that feels when they all mount up. This hot weather has had the opposite effect with me and exercise – I was getting really regular and then felt bad because I hadn’t done much in the last couple of weeks. There’s nothing like the heat to drain your energy. I won’t try to give advice because I don’t know enough about your situation, but it’s ok to have a bad day or few days, and it’s ok to be honest about it. I hope you have some good people who can listen, bring something to cheer you up or help you out when things are getting tough.

    I hope you’re doing ok hun, if you ever need to talk just drop me a DM on Twitter or something I’d hate to think that you’re struggling and feel like you don’t have many people to talk to! Honestly don’t worry about not being able to get out and run in this weather, trust me it’s much easier to go in autumn/winter when it’s cooler than trying to run and being out of breath within half a mile, I haven’t been running since the heatwave first hit and while I feel guilty I know I wouldn’t be able to cope out there at the minute! It’s a shame your sister isn’t more supportive maybe if she knew how much hard work goes in to running your blog she’d understand a little more.

      I’m doing better now thank you, lovely! That means a lot 💕 I think I probably need to get back to gym as I found that easier than going for a run outside, I’m not sure why but exercise definitely helped me before so I’m willing to give it a try. I have told her how much time etc. it takes but she just doesn’t care 😩 xo

    first off let me say, God Bless being cancer free for so long. That’s such amazing news, hopefully it stays that way! secondly, i’m sorry you’re struggling. i can relate to it being hard to be motivated when you have negative people around. my family doesn’t know about the seriousness of my blog for just that reason. keep working towards your dream. I wrote a post myself today about how i’m feeling lost! best of luck on turning your blog into a full time gig!

    I honestly just want to give you a hug and tell you to stop being so hard on yourself! Even from just reading this post, it’s like I can feel you have been through so much. You honestly sound you are doing such a great job in life, going self-employed with your blog is amazing and you must work so hard to be able to do that! I’m so pleased for you with your news about your health and your mum sounds so cute. Also – people who work in offices sit at their computers all day and that’s not lazy so why is your job any different!? Sending you so much love and I really hope you are in a better place soon lovely.

    Woahhhh this post is mad real…I remember seeing your tweet that you’re 3 years cancer free and I think that’s an amazing milestone to meet! I honestly believe you’re very strong and handling this great even though you’re struggling now. I’m so sorry to hear this. We all have rough patches and I know you’ll overcome this soon. Don’t feel bad about not getting back to your running progress, give your body time and be determined and you’ll eventually get there. I’m sending you loads of love and well wishes. I hope you feel better soon! 😘💕

    • believeinamiracle says

      Aw, thank you so much, Lena 💕 Thankfully I am feeling a little better now! I think I need something to aim for with running so I’m thinking about signing up to a race in September so hopefully that will push me to get back into it 🤷🏼‍♀️ xo

    I would just like to say congratulations on being a cancer survivor.. I know it was a rough road and maybe it still is but you are strong, beautiful and resilient.. Just remember to take it one day at a time, trouble doesn’t last always..💓💓

    First off, Congrats on being 3 years cancer free. That is beyond words amazing!!

    Girl I relate to this so much.
    I’ve been through a difficult time recently as well with my mental health. My best advice to you, is when you feel overwhelmed, it can best to take some time for yourself. Even if that means, 3 days off social media, or whatever. Also, the sadness won’t last. There’s always a rainbow after the rain. <3 As cliche as that is, it's one thing I learned is true. x
    I have Hashimoto's so it makes me tired too! When I was at work I would say I'm tired, and everyone would do the same!! lol But of course, no one can really understand.
    Sending you all the love girl. I just want you to know that if you need, I'm here to chat.
    I always consider my online friends just as important as my real-life friends. <3
    All the love,
    Rachel, xoxo

      Thank you SO SO much, lovely! 💕

      Oh no 🙈 I hope you are doing alright, girl! I did take a little time off social media, I think it can help so much. I hate that sometimes we get so caught up in it all and don’t realise then out mental health suffers.. It’s so annoying that people don’t understand, ugh. Thank you, beautiful! You really made my day after reading this 💖 Lots of love xo

    Your honesty here has really touched my soul. Though I may not be able to offer empathy for what you have gone through, I am full of compassion, respect and love for your strength to put your thoughts into words. You may not realise it right now, but one day you will take a look back at this post and see just how far forward you have come. You have the greatest level of bravery and courage to continue through the most difficult of times, and you will shine even brighter for this experience you are going through now. I have every faith in you honey – always remember you are worth the fight x

    I have been trying to find the right words to reply to this post. I am so truly sorry that you were made to go through what you have been through. I know how hard life can be, and strong the grips of anxiety can feel. I know it might not feel like it, but you are so strong, so beautiful and so courageous. You really can achieve anything that you could wish for. I mean just look at your blog it is SO beautiful and you have a way with words so true and honest. I am so glad to have connected with you xxx
