CROSSING THE STYX
Welcome to my website Crossing the Styx.
Here I’ll be documenting and sharing with you my journey through depression, imposter syndrome and existential crisis.
I chose this title Crossing the Styx as the ‘STYX’ refers to the mythical river… that divide between the land of the living and the land of the dead. This is a river of hate, regret, anguish, anxiety, tears, fears, anger, grief, grieving, weeping and despair.
I have spent my entire life trying to get from one side to the other. I have been making loads of effort just trying to make it to back to the land of the living.
I must clarify that I am not a psychologist, or a psychiatrist or an expert of any kind on the subject. I’m not affiliated to any religion but I do believe in a higher power that is watching over me. This leaves me the liberty to just tell it like it is: for me. It is about understanding self…myself most importantly. It’s about what I do to survive life. It’s about my self-acceptance. It’s about accepting life. It’s about what I do to feel better when I am sad or feeling out of it. It’s about how I control my feelings and finally it’s about how I try to change the things that I can.
I am in no way giving anyone any advice or tips or coaching. I’m not going to be telling any what to do. I won’t be that pretentious or hypocritical.
I simply want to use this blog to spill my guts. I want to bare it all. I will be sharing my likes, my dislikes, what turns me on, what turns me off, what gets me rocking and what put me down. That’s on the inside. On the outside I’m a guy, a proud part of the LGBT community, a bare practitioner and amateur photographer who is into sports and who is very curious.
In short this blog is for everyone no matter your age, sexuality, sexual orientation or gender. This is for anyone who may find themselves in a similar position at some point or another.
