Self – Help

Being a Psychology student myself and a pursuer of some position in the same field, I considered it not only important but very necessary to reblog this post.

I plan to write on the subject myself too, but till then-this needs sharing!

  1. Tehreem! Thank you sooo much for reblogging this post. It’s one that is very close to my heart and I wanted to raise as much awareness as I could, which isn’t easy when your blog is practically non existent on the internet, but you sharing this just made things a whole lot easier. You’re the sweetest. Thank you

    • Honestly I am the one who is immensely thankful to you for even writing a post on this topic because no matter how much I want to create awareness, I haven’t been able to write a single word for the masses. As soon as I saw this, I knew I had gotten something substantial and perfect to put up…my blog is not read by many, in fact a handful few but I literally just wanted to fulfill my responsibility by reblogging it. Thanks for all those kind words tho I m not even close:”) Keep doing the virtuous work u have started!
