#InspireLSRelationships | The Difficulties Of Divorce

Divorce is never a nice thing to talk about, nor an event that anyone plans to happen in their lives. However, it is also a fact that a vast majority of marriages end this way. It is a horrible situation to be in, and not just for the couple, but for their family too, and for any children they have. Divorce isn’t something that a person decides on over night; it’s something that can creep in and be slowly released over time, even as the couple fights to rekindle their relationship. It can come all of a sudden over a betrayal or an act that tears the two people apart – and in those instances, it can be even harder, as there has been no slow fade, no fight made and lost, but just a sudden cleaving of the world they’re used to. And in amongst all these horrible, emotional times, there are things that have to sort out and arranged to separate your two lives.

#InspireLSEntertainment | Visiting One Of London’s Iconic Markets

London is the city that still has traces of its true past still lodged in it’s DNA. It rose up after the needs of the United Kingdom’s industrial revolution became so great in the city, that more and more people found a way to make it their permanent residency. Slowly but surely, little pockets of different communities become to rise, and suddenly you had a mix of people, cultures, foods, music and clothing styles. To supplement this newfound way of living, markets were erected in certain places all around London, where anyone sold almost anything. The cultures and the atmosphere you see today, which exist mostly outside of zone 1 and 2, is what some might say the real London.

#SWInspires | Navigating Your Way Through ‘The Sunken Place’

Mental Health Illness has no face: This is something I say often, and when I further examine such a statement, I see two meanings. The first; is that anyone can be affected regardless of who they are or what they look like. The second and not so obvious; is from the perspective of mental health itself. It’s hard to describe or put into a box, it disguises in many different cloaks, hides away for seasons and is somewhat a shape shifter in that it can manifest itself in different ways within different people. For the benefit of this piece, I’d like to discuss the topic of Depression. You’ll notice in the title of this article my use of the term ‘The Sunken Place’. After watching the movie ‘Get Out’, I found some words to closer describe the feeling of depression that lingers within my own life, and indeed it is like sinking into a hole within myself.
