Box Sized Hugs Story
I am Chloe, founder and director of Box Sized Hugs.
Firstly I would like to say thank you so much for showing an interest in Box Sized Hugs, your support is invaluable to help us make the world a better place. We truly believe that the most important thing is to take care of your own mental health whilst being loving and caring for others too. That is why 20% of Box Sized Hugs profits will be donated to the amazing charity Mind UK.
After suffering from depression and anxiety myself, I wish to do everything in my power to show people that there really is an end to your suffering, even if you can’t see it yourself...
I know how hard it is, trying to find your place in the world. The plea of your dreams and deepest desires being strangled, suffocated, submerged by the buzz taking up permanent residence in your brain. Your twenties are unquestionably the best years of your life. But here we are, anxious about what path to take and too ashamed to share how we truly feel. We are scared to take risks and constant what ifs blurring our perspective.
It may seem like the world is against you, but not as much as you’re against yourself. But I’m here to show you that the grass sure is greener on the other side. Depression and anxiety have no preferences. They don’t care how rich you are, how pretty you are, how many followers you have on social media. You never know what someone is going through, so just be kind and loving. We must prioritise self-love and love to others.
How I look at self-love now, is that you must have the same approach to education. You must study it, practice it, write about it, trial and error, change your mindset, write down your goals and how you’re feeling, take one thing at a time and never, ever stop trying. If you know someone who needs a pick me up, a little help, or you just are so grateful to have them in your life, send them a Box Sized Hug today. I am certain that it will bring them such joy and will remind them, when they need it most, that they are loved.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting Box Sized Hugs and Mind UK, you really are helping make the world a better place. If you ever just need a stranger to share your problems with, email Chloe@boxsizedhugs.co.uk today and I will confidently and confidentially offer advice and support where I can.
Love Chloe xxx
