Hello, I hope you are okay? If you are new to this little series on my blog well where have you been?! Only joking, my series focuses on finding out more about the person behind the blog. Today I’m interviewing Anne from Forever the Wanderer who encourages people to openly speak about Mental health on her blog. Her blog mainly focuses on travel and mental health. As always, my questions will be in pink and Anne’s answers will be in black.
Question One- What is your biggest regret in life?
My biggest regret in life would have to be not telling people about my abusive father a lot sooner than last year. I have always hated him. For a long time I wanted to report his abuse to child protection services and the police. I couldn’t though because I knew my mum and siblings wouldn’t back me up and would have made me out to be a liar. I was scared that no one would believe me because my father had everyone wrapped around his finger.
Question Two- What is the meaning behind your blog?
My blog is all about inspiring others to travel the world, explore new cultures, experiences and languages. I want to help others travel giving tips and advice from my own travelling so they can create amazing memories for themselves. I also am beginning to connect mental health into my blog to help people open up about their illnesses and help others understand mental illness.
Question Three- What is your dream job and how does that compare to your job/where you are in life now?
My dream job would be having a career with my writing. I want to be able to share my writing with the world and maybe inspire someone else to go out on their own and create their own career on their passions.Now I am currently unemployed and I am working even harder on my blog and my writing.
Question Four- What has been your biggest struggle in life?
My biggest struggle in life has been trusting and opening up to new people in my life. Due to my past experiences I have learned to keep my walls up and to not let anyone in or become close to me. In the past three years, only two people have stayed long enough in my life for me to begin trusting and opening up to them. Trusting people has been so difficult for me but I am working on it and slowly opening up with my blog.
Question Five- What is your favourite hobby?
That’s an easy question! Writing.
