After some lovely days out in the last few weeks, it seemed like a no-brainer to have a special blog about spending time with important people as part of #SelfCareSeptember.
My friends and family are a wonderful support to me. They are the people who have stuck by me through my mental health difficulties, help me remember the reasons I am recovering when it feels tricky and above all, they are the people who make me smile and have so much fun with.
Making time to spend socialising is often something that get’s put to the bottom of the to-do list, it doesn’t always seem like a priority as often those people will still be around later on and of course you’ll catch up eventually. I’ve blogged a little before thanking my friends for sticking by me, but not everyone has been able to. I’ve really seen the importance of a good friendship group over the last year especially. So I’m trying to be really proactive and make sure I’m making the most of the time with my friends and family. They are the ones who make me feel good, so they should be the ones I make time for!
