In your corner

I’ve had an incredible day today watching the last match in this year’s 6 nations. England were trouncing Scotland almost keeping the score the same as the minutes played tally.

I don’t know what Gregor said at half time, or what they said to themselves, but it worked!

Suffice to say England scored in the 83rd minute to draw although Scotland retained the Calcutta Cup.

I was so proud of the Scotland team and their efforts.

As Kevin and I walked to the station I checked my phone and read of another young man taking his life and I was shocked – he was 26, fit, good looking and living seemingly a charmed life.

I feel so sad for any family that has to go through this pain, I just can’t imagine how you would cope with such news.

As a mother of three, two of which are sons, there for the grace of God go I.

Why? What can change? Life for some is tough, does society place such high expectations of how we should look, what we wear, the car we drive, holidays? Does social media warp how life seems?

Life and people aren’t perfect, but there can be perfect moments in your life. We all can’t have everything and even those that appear to have it all, quite often that isn’t the full picture.

When we struggle we need to be sure that we can talk to others and not fear that it is a sign of weakness. I know I have in the past and have sought help on a couple of occasions.

Our mental health is so important, as is resilience and knowing who we can turn to.

I am a worrier and many a time my husband has helped me by saying that we can face things when they happen, don’t worry before they do.

The mind is such a delicate thing, no one really knows what is going on inside, and outwardly we can all wear a mask that hides our vulnerability.

So we need to be more open, honest and share our feelings, thoughts and fears.

Be in your mate’s corner, as you never know when you might need them in your corner.
