My name is Ash Alves and welcome to my blog.
My blogging journey began in early 2017 out of desperation for an outlet to process all the chaos that imprisoned my mind. I was a recent politics graduate, struggling to find a job and had no idea what direction I wanted to take with my life. To make matters worse, my family environment were in complete disarray. I was unhappy with all aspects of my life and crippled by negative thoughts and low self-esteem.
I turned to writing as a form of therapy and healing. My internal battles inspired the creation of my blog. I wanted to share my experiences and reach out to others who have experienced similar demons. I felt alone through most of my struggles and I want others to know that they’re not alone. I want to instil hope that it’s possible to live beyond the pain and turn your life around. I decided to take blogging seriously in 2018 and wanted to use my struggles to help make a difference in another person’s life. As a great person once said, ‘no feeling has not been felt before’. I wanted more people to know this reality.
Writing has saved my life and I hope to connect with others to instil a little hope in their lives. Join me on my journey as I attempt to untangle my thoughts through writing.
-Love Ash, x
