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. Sacred Animals' Darragh Nolan writes about getting through tough times.
There’s a little refrain in the middle of the Stars song ‘Your Ex Lover is Dead’ that I sometimes call upon when it seems like everything is upside down: “Live through this, and you won’t look back”. I just gotta make it though the next little bit, take life one day at a time or one hour at a time, depending on what’s needed. Live in manageable compartments of time. Sometimes I just need to step away from the world and find a little head space. I’m one of the lucky ones though. It’s manageable. For some, it’s not. If it’s not, talk to people, seek help, do whatever you can to make it that little bit better. Tiny steps. Tinier make them feel heard and listened to and understood.
100 Voices was published in the Hot Press Mental Health Special in conjunction with Lyons Tea and Pieta House as part of the Now We're Talking Campaign. For more please visit hotpress.com/now-were-talking/
