Dear Jess Q&A

I love hearing people's stories and life experiences.

You've probably realised that I'm an over-sharer. The older I get the more comfortable I've become with letting people see my imperfections and flaws. We've all got them and I revel in hearing other people's stories and challenges. Sharing our experiences and fears is how we connect with one another.

I know it makes me feel less alone. That's why I love being an agony aunt for Sunday Life magazine . My disclaimer each week, 'These answers are simply my views, and I am far from perfect. I struggle through some days better than others with the help of my family, cats, chocolate and antidepressants....'

Here are some of my recent Dear Jess questions.
