I’m writing this on a Monday at 11.58am because this seems as good a time as any to request questions from you about your mental health, relationships, or just being a human in this trashy world. Plus, many people for various reasons hate Mondays, so why not take this opportunity to rant, to vent, to cry out “Why universe why?!” in the form of an email, to me, so that I can attempt to answer it in a coherent and hopefully helpful way?
The gist is this – I’m creating a sort of agony aunt column, because I like giving unsolicited advice and not dealing with the consequences, and because I have been told on a number of occasions that I sometimes even give “good advice”.
And we all know that social media readily provides a plethora of strangers who will give you advice whether you want it or not, so why not ask someone trained in the art of doing so, without seeming like I am?*
Intrigued? Me too, I wonder what this column will look like…
Anyway, here’s an idea of the kinds of questions /topics I will try and answer: mental health, relationships, friendships, work stuff, race stuff, female stuff, travel stuff.
*Note: I have a background in psychotherapy but I have since hung up my therapy hat and am no longer in-practice, so all advice given is entirely my own opinion, not scientifically viable and mostly for entertainment purposes. So you know, pinch of salt people.
