With the popularization and de-stigmatization of mental health, psychology has entered the zeitgeist in a way that it never has before. Words such as ‘trauma’, ‘gaslighting’ and ‘toxic’ have become buzzwords, often misused.
It all started in January 2021. Whilst drafting an article for The Sundial Journal’s first edition on “The challenges students face with sustainable fashion”, my mental health declined, and I was unable to write the article. I was so frustrated with this relapse and that, of all the days in the year, that it happened when I was actually doing something really cool and exciting. Virtually nobody got through 2020 without experiencing these emotions.
