Tell Peter Pan I Called because I don’t wanna grow up


I’ve been feeling a little down lately (and totally stressed out of my mind, but what’s new there hey?) Recently I’ve moved back to my family home in Cardiff and been finding it quite hard adjusting, it’s such a big change from living with friends in a university house. Living with friends is just such a different way of living to living with your parents, there’s so many things you don’t realise that will change, just subtle little differences and of course the fact you don’t get to see those people everyday now (which really freaking sucks). Also there’s the fact that i’m supposed to be figuring out what to do with my life and where i’m going to end up. So between missing my friends and my Birmingham life I need to start thinking ASAP what the plan is and start looking for a job.

I find that writing things down definitely helps me in times like this as it gives me an opportunity to get my thoughts and feelings down rather than just keeping them to myself. As always in times like this talking to people is super helpful and can help relieve a lot of stress. When I was younger and I felt down or stressed I used to just listen to music in my room and have a little cry, this did help a little (I may or may not have done this recently, oops) but I do think it’s super important not to bottle it all up and keep it inside. On the flip side though I did also use to listen to upbeat songs and have a little dance around, this always made me feel a little more cheery. Listening to happy songs still does help put a smile on my face when i’m feeling down.


I’ve recently invested in a diary/planner and i’m finding it really helpful with keeping myself organised and also a little more positive (seeing I’ve got fun stuff planned and things mapped out a bit is actually helping a lot more than I thought it would).  Splitting things down into goals and plans helps make it a little more manageable rather than just looking at it as one massive chunk.

When I first moved back to Cardiff from Birmingham I had soooo much stuff, literally I don’t know where it all came from but there was tonnes of stuff so I had to have a massive clan out of my room in Cardiff. Tidying and de-cluttering my room definitely helped me de-stress a bit, I threw away so much I didn’t need and gave away a load to charity shops as well to actually benefit someone rather than just sitting unused in my bedroom.

This post turned out to be something completely different than originally intended but I kind of like it, even though it got way deeper than intended.

I haven’t been blogging for long now but I feel myself getting more and more confident with it as I go along, I still want to get more involved within the blogging community but this will come in time i’m sure.

I hope you enjoyed this post and would love to hear your thoughts, what helps you de-stress? I’d looove to hear from you, even if it was just for a chat.

I actually wrote like 20 titles for this because I couldn’t decide what to call it or what this post was even really about (miss indecisive).

    Hang in there πŸ™‚ You’re doing great and amazing things are yet to come! I get stressed out a lot, and reading mysteries helps me a lot because they’re such an escape my real life. I also love face masks and herbal tea. Thanks for sharing your thought with us πŸ™‚

      Thank you lovely ☺️ I find myself getting stressed about the little things sometimes. I used to drink a lot of herbal tea when I was younger so maybe I should try that again. Thank you for taking the time to read and comment, I really appreciate 😊

    I think you are on the right track. I am a list person. I feel more organized and in control when I write goals and projects down. I also break down larger products into baby steps to make more manageable. Getting outside helps me destress – walking and exercise.

      Thank you. I find lists can help so much as they can help you organise your thoughts a bit and work out where the best place to start is. This is a good idea, I think exercise can be such a good destress-er, something that I need to do bit more of x

    The planner definitely helps to get your life in order. As I see this post was published on July 10, I hope things are better now. xx

    Great post, one of the things I love about blogging and reading blogs is getting things out there, being open. Planners and lists are a great help, I like looking ahead to see what fun stuff I’ve got planned for the year.

      Thank you, yes this is so true like I find writing blog posts so freeing and even reading them is so great because helps you know you’re not alone out there with how you feel. That’s such a good idea to be fair, thinking about the future is a brilliant motivator xx

      Thanks lovely, it is better now for sure but can’t help but feeling like this some days – so hard not to let it get to you xx Yes, it’s so hard sometimes trying to figure it out

    I definitely felt this way when I moved back home after first year of uni. The dynamic is very different and it can be so hard to adjust after you’ve gotten used to being by yourself and just generally living differently. I have every confidence that you will find a job you love and what better excuse to go and celebrate with your friends! xx

      it’s so hard to get used to, I still don’t feel 100% normal now. Exactly, everything changes and it definitely feels like you’ve lost some of your freedom. Aw thank you gal, just have to keep trying and heading in the right direction xx

    I can relate to this so much but writing things down and having a plan definitely helped me figure out some things. Exercise helpes me de-stress too. I hope things are better for you now lovely πŸ’•
