Hello my name is Ash aka Recovering Pessimist!
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 financial situation and family environment was 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. It was through my internal battles which birthed 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
