With Melb in it’s sixth lockdown, my sis and I thought we would do an episode on lockdown and how it has impacted mental health especially getting to our sixth lockdown. Usually, I do it from a media space, but we are obviously limited so excuse the quality - I just wanted to get something out there as i felt it’s important to spread some awareness of how you are not alone during this hard time.

Tully & I have a hot girl chat about how self-esteem and trauma can impact dating in the 21st century.

As always, TRIGGER WARNING, as some topics can trigger: if you have any triggers with self-esteem, depression, anxiety I would advise listening when you're in a better place.

There is also a lot of swearing as I have a dirty mouth (sorry, mum.)
