    Hi everyone I'm new here.

    I'm 33 from the Brighton,UK area. I suffer with mental health and low self esteem. Seems to have always been an issue since childhood but got worse in my adult years. Been out a long time but never quite accepted myself. Great at helping others but not myself. I struggle to make friends and feel the time is now to enjoy life before its to late.

    Looking to make friends who I can have a laugh with and enjoy life.

    Hope your all well and staying safe

    Hey there, are you a big Disney fan? Do you have a favorite character? Me? Eeyore.
    There are plenty here who have experienced similar situations. They can be an amazing support system. I am here for support ((momhugs)), but if you want to talk I want to listen.
    Most people find it easier to accept anyone’s flaws than their own. We all need to be kinder to ourselves! Have you been able to see a professional?
    I have moved a lot as an adult know how it gets more difficult to develop relationships as we get older. This stupid virus has made it even more difficult. The one bright side for most is the internet and the ability to connect that way. Again, this site can help. Go have some fun playing some of the word games. Go and read through other posts to get a feel for EC and how you fit in.
    You are very welcomed and I look forward to getting to know you better.
    ((momhugs))

    Hello!!!

    I absolutely LOVE Brighton! You know, I attended Pride with my family in Brighton last year and I cried and it was that event that made me think I HAVE TO TELL SOMEONE THAT I’M GAY! - Still took a while to do it but I did eventual to some!

    Welcome to EC!!! - I’m 28 F from London! Were you born in Brighton, or did you move there?

    Amz

    ❤️
