I often struggle with issues of confidence and self-esteem. Overall, I would say that I am an outgoing and confident person but I’ve also realised that confidence is a fragile thing; sometimes it doesn’t take much to tear it down. One day, I came home and wrote this piece addressed to myself as a way of picking myself up again in those moments of self-doubt and low self-esteem. These are all the things I love about myself

2020 has been a challenging year for us all. We have all been tried and tested in so many ways and while it is easy for us to focus on the struggles and difficulties we have endured, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the positives of the year. I wrote this piece to serve as a reminder of how far we have come. Let this be our year.
