Life's tough. Most people will think ' they're just teenagers what do they know' but they're right We don't know much, but we have have our own experience which isn't 'stress' or just 'hormones' of being a teenager. They may not be 'real problems' but We've all struggled and it's hard for us all.

Recently I've had one of the worse experiences of my life in Manchester arena, I was there and an amazing night was ruined. But I'm not going into that because everyone already knows by now but I luckily got out okay. So devastating what Happened. Rip to all the beautiful people who's lives were lost but let's get into the post instead of talking about it. 

It made me think because I've been not in the best mindset for it all and I've wanted to do anything but think about life sometimes and I have been trying to distract myself to make my mindset better so I wanted to things of things to help. I've realised things that I've been frequently doing and they really have helped me so I though I'd share them to maybe even help someone.
