Do the Whirlwind by Architecture in Helsinki

Impossible not to lift your chin a little higher with this number.

P.S non-musical sounds are just as good - rain, fridge noise, waves.

This sounds wierd but..... Just 'being' in the moment. Put yourself in a safe space if you can. Accept you're internally having a massive freakout for no reason, and it may seem irrational but well - it's happening! And if there is a reason, know that you're not wierd or wrong, that you will feel sa...

Hi Jack, I'm Miranda and I'm also 21. it's really easy to put yourself down when all you can think of are the negative things. It's hard to congratulate yourself on overcoming the negatives, or doing something simple that you find hard where others do not. You are not a loser - very few people are! ...

I'm Miranda, I live in New Zealand and am a 21 year old music student who works as a bartender and piano teacher part time. I've been aware of my mental state since I was 17, when a friend told me it wasn't normal to feel so drained and despondent all the time. Since that I've had 1 (AND ONLY!) 'S' ...

New girl

I can't believe I didn't find this site 'til now! I'm a 21 year old student who's been struggling for 4 years now. It has recently flared up, and taken me by surprise as I thought I had a handle on myself. I've learnt to ask for help when I need it, but recently I feel like I don't know how to help ...

It sounds corny, but you have to just keep remembering positive moments and decide to look forward to another one of those, even if it's weeks away. I struggle as well with the idea that this will be a part of me for the rest of my life. And that right now it is bad. I have to be forcibly, horribly,...

Another day

Well it's 3.14 am, and after 2 hours of browsing the forums, I feel brave enough to post. My day? Scary and stressful. A stranger wouldn't guess I'm screaming and terrified on the inside. My flatmates don't understand how big of a deal it is for me to leave the house. I can't attend lectures anymore...
