Self description

Female , 29

I am a 29 year old catering assistant and freelance photographer from England who has often felt different from the crowd growing up. I've had weight and body issues, break ups, family loss and have dealt with depression and anxiety. Despite all these things I gathered enough courage to leave home 2 years ago and get a place of my own. It's financially very hard and can be lonely at times but it has helped me feel more independent and stronger as a person and more confident.
I am currently off work recovering from a bike accident and have been having physio to help me walk properly again and thought I might aswell try and be useful where I can at the moment and sign up to this site.

Life experiences

Bereavement

When I was 7 years old I lost my baby sister to a rare heart condition and then only a few years later I lost my Grandad to Cancer and with my parents suffering the loss of their child and for my Father, also his Dad's death, I had to grow up very fast and be as helpful and supportive as possible.

Bullying

I was badly bullied at school and also a little at my first job when I was 16. I was overweight, had ginger hair and had been brought up in quite a strict religious household so I was often alienated from other teenagers as I wasn't getting up to the things that they were. I chose to leave my religion when I was 15 for personal reasons but still have huge respect for it and still often feel like an outsider in life.

Family Break Ups

My parents, despite going through losing a child together and money problems, eventually couldn't make things work any longer after my Mum had weight loss surgery and lost a huge amount of weight. With her new found confidence she went a bit off the rails and had a bit of a mid-life crisis and ended up cheating on my dad. They split just before my 20th birthday but thankfully have remained firm friends.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I would like to become a mentor as I have been through quite a lot for a young woman and if there is any way I can give advice or just listen to someone else's problems then I would like to help.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
