W lcome… How do you express your power? For some, it’s about a show of strength – be that having the biggest muscles or the biggest number of followers on Instagram. Others show it in a different way: by stepping forward, opening up and sharing their own story, warts and all. In my opinion, there is nothing more powerful than that. I have been blown away this month by the bravery and h that has been shown to us by not one, not two, but three a g people. By so authentically sharing the challenges they have faced, I hope they help you to realise you’re not the only one facing issues in your life (we all have them!) and also inspire you to open your heart to others. Gail Porter, who found herself go in a few short years from having her image projected onto the Houses of Parliament to sleeping on a park bench on Hampstead Heath, says on page 44: ‘I’ve had odd times, but nobody knows what’s happening across the road. We don’t know what the neighbour or the person downstairs is going through. We’re all going through stuff, and I’m quite happy to talk about anything. I hope I’ve made a difference and made other people think, “We’re not on our own in this”.’ I also had the honour of speaking to Mark Lemon about his beloved dad, who was tragically killed 30 years ago. And I feel no shame in telling you that his story moved me to tears more than once. But as with each of our stories this month, while Mark’s is initially heartbreaking, his is also a tale of inspiration, as he explains how he has worked to turn his life into something beautiful (page 68). And, finally, our cover star, the brilliant Angela Scanlon, has shared perhaps the most surprising story of all (page 14), revealing that while she projected the perfect happy-go-lucky, girl-next-door image, she battled an eating disorder for 15 years and then became obsessed with work, constantly comparing herself to others. It’s quite shocking to see how someone who seemingly ‘has it all’ can be struggling on the inside, and an insightful look into an inner world we would never have imagined. I hope that you are moved by their honesty and uplifted by the way they have each fought so hard to overcome their challenges. I certainly have been. We have lots more inspiration this month, too, from ways to Sa y x free yourself from negative thinking (page 22) to the Japanese secret to a good life (page 30), plus the easy way to meditate (page 108) and how to walk yourself happy (page 88), not to Sally Saunders, mention our brilliant dossier (page 51). What an issue. Enjoy! Editor We hope you love Psychologies. Subscribe today and save! Go to or call 01959 543747* *FOR FULL DETAILS, SEE PAGE 40 Subscribe at 3
