We invited a 100-strong chorus of artists, writers, musicians, broadcasters, sports stars and more to contribute to Now We’re Talking, a mental health campaign, run in partnership with Lyons Tea and Pieta House. Broadcaster Nikki Hayes discusses her personal experiences.
I grew up always knowing I didn’t fit in. I was never anyone’s best friend. I was never the star of the show. I was always the outsider.
I remember a situation where five friends had to choose a best friend and I was the only one who wasn’t chosen. It cut right through me. And it depressed me – but it built me. You need to fight for you. And no matter what I’ve been challenged with mentally, I fight it.
And I’ll never stop, because we only get one life and we deserve the best from it.
