Blogging is becoming more and more popular by the day, people are enjoying the opportunity to write more, share their thoughts and the community is getting bigger and bigger which is one of the greatest things in my personal opinion. There is nothing I love more than seeing this incredible community grow stronger and more inspiring everyday! There are however some topics that I would love to be spoken about more, as part of the blogging community we have such a pull to influence a large amount of people regardless of how many followers you have. Whether it is 5 or 5000 your posts all matter and are so important! So what sort of topics do I think should be talked about more this year?
Periods – This is something super close to my heart because growing up I was always ashamed that I was on my period, I would try to hide the fact that I was on, or when I was in the toilet try to take my pad out so slowly so no one would know the sound. If you were like me then stop right there, a period is something all girls go through, there is nothing to be ashamed about. Ever.
Not being afraid to go to the doctor – I know previously I’ve been afraid to go to the doctor, mainly because I get scared of what the outcome could be. But if there is something wrong, don’t be afraid, go, it’s better to know what is going on with your body! You’re not alone either, if you ever need someone to talk to, I’m here!
Mental Health – I’ve been talking a lot about mental health mainly because of how important it is to everyone, so many people will go through a mental health condition in our lives so it is so important for the stigma that is related to mental health to literally be gone. As soon as possible.
Sexual Health – To be honest I don’t hear many people speaking about sexual health in general however there are lots of bloggers who have been talking about it more often so people can change their thought process towards things like sexual health. Sex shouldn’t be a taboo, it is something that a lot of people do (as long as you’re of age & consenting) so why don’t we talk about it?
Checking your body – When it comes to women checking their boobs and guys checking their balls sometimes we get a little lax, I mean I know I do sometimes I’m not afraid to admit it. Lately however I’ve been trying to make sure that I check my boobs for lumps to make sure that there is nothing to be worried about, including guys.
Why comparisons aren’t necessary – We go through life always comparing ourselves, I mean I am guilty of doing it everyday, whether it is my body or my blog we are all guilty of doing it in some parts of our lives, but we need to focus on how incredible we at rather than looking to others trying to diminish our own self worth!
Self love – I know a lot of bloggers talk about self love and this one point follows on from my previous point, but I think there is still a lot that we can do because no one should ever hate their body, because we are all beautiful in so many ways.
Being forced to be happy – I am a generally positive person on social media, or at least I try my best, but I think sometimes people force people to be positive, I just want to be a positive influence in people’s lives. We aren’t going to be happy 24/7 but don’t ever force people to be in a certain mood, it doesn’t work like that.
