Let’s, Err, Talk Real


So, I made a voice recording. It was kinda… Difficult to talk about? I don’t actually know how I managed it without stuttering or shaking, but yeah. I wish I didn’t sound so needy, but it would mean a lot if you’d take a listen.

You can find it here – and before you faint in shock, yes, it’s on youtube, because I wanted to make it more accessible. Is this a good idea, d’you think?

Remember that if you’re made to feel awful, get yourself away from whoever’s making you feel that way. You are fantastic, and strong, and it’s OKAY to say you’re being treated like crap.

Love from Elm ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Yessss Elm this is so important! Toxic friendships can have affects just as bad as toxic relationships ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Also btw I subscribed to your channel under an account which uses my real name but please don’t spread the name around because I prefer to be anonymous ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I would never do that! ๐Ÿ™‚ Don’t worry – I understand. the anonymity. In fact – how about this: I’ll subscribe to your channel using the one with my real name.

  2. I love your voice! It made my day being able to listen to your recordings since before I couldn’t access them. And I agree, you are a special snowflake. It was such an inspirational posts and I’m sure many people will be able to gain courage from that to end a toxic friendship.

    • I really hope so! ๐Ÿ™‚ And thank you so much – I’m glad you can listen to them now. I’m planning on uploading the others I’ve done, too.

  3. This was really enlightening, Thank you Elm. Toxic friendships are not really discussed so I’m glad you did ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope that people will understand that toxic friendships should never be tolerated.

  4. I just loved listening to this! Every word you said was totally true, and if more of us would learn this at an earlier age, we’d spare ourselves from so much useless drama and suffering. Great that you approached this topic on such a mature note! Great perspective Elm, really! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. YouTube is displaying the linked video as unavailable. Umm, of course, you posted this in 2016 and weโ€™re now in 2018, but I was wondering if you could re-upload this to YouTube for folks like me who are joining the party a little late. From othersโ€™ thoughts on this post and from what Iโ€™ve learnt about you, I think it would definitely be valuable to get this voice recording back up, if thatโ€™s possible/okay with you.

    • Ahhh…. Iโ€™m really sorry about that. Unfortunately somebody from real life found my YouTube channel and took the piss out of me for my voice recordings and so I deleted them all out of terror that everybody else would find it. My speaking voice is much more recognisable than my singing voice. I feel really bad for it and for giving no warning but I felt like I had no other option but to delete it in a panic

      • Oh, you have still done a pretty phenomenal job of keeping yourself anonymous. If you feel okay in sharing the recording via Skype personally, I’d appreciate that, but I would certainly understand should you be uncomfortable in doing so.

      • I wouldnโ€™t feel uncomfortable at all!! Itโ€™s just I donโ€™t have it any more because I deleted it. I meant to ask you though if you wanted to Skype sometime so we could have a chat about things? ๐Ÿ™‚
