Now lately I’ve been doing more blog reading (finally!) I’ve been cramming in some fab reading time, leaving a few comments and just being able to do more of what I enjoy, which is supporting other bloggers and reading all the content! I’m going to be sharing a variety of different blog posts, because I read so many different things throughout the week. I really just wanted to share a few different posts, share the love on some incredible posts that I have absolutely adored lately and hopefully you will find more blogs to fall in love with!
This post has actually been inspired by a conversation I had overheard while shopping that broke my heart to be honest. We all know the immense pressure that are put under a lot of people both male and female to look a certain way, especially though print and social media, it can be incredibly difficult for people to feel like they’re represented. The magazines that can photoshop out a persons spots or cellulite with a click of a button, feeling represented is tough. While doing my food shop a young girl asked the person they were with while looking at a magazine, why don’t I look like that?
We aren’t all confident 24/7 I mean it isn’t physically possible and as of late I have had a serious crisis of confidence in basically every aspect of my life. I’m at that point where I’m thinking honestly what is wrong with me? What is going on with me? So much has been going on lately, from being ill, to my mental health, to lots of things changing, after a long workout, some yoga, a load of coffee and a chat with myself, I feel like I’m closer to feeling more like me again.
This post has been in my drafts for about a year, and I haven’t bothered to publish it. I’m completely unsure why, but I feel like now it is February, the “Girl Boss” term seems to be going around more and more, so I thought post it now! Now the term #GirlBoss has been floating around for a few years, if you’ve done something amazing Girl Boss tends to be the phrase people will use like they’re winning at life. We all juggle quite a lot to be honest and this whole adulting stuff is difficult to be honest.
Now we all know that I’m an internet addict, but being a blogger you’d expect me to love it right? Well, I won’t hide it, I have a love hate relationship with the internet. It can do such amazing things for us, we can get amazing deals on our favourite things at just a touch of a button, we can talk to family on the other side of the globe, it’s an amazing invention. But there are downsides to it. Not everything on the internet is peachy keen jelly bean.
I got the idea for this post because I had my music on shuffle, Kelly Clarkson you’re a babe. Thanks for the blog inspo!
Anyway if you follow me on Twitter, things have been slightly up and down for me, especially the last 6 months. For various reason which I won’t go into I was struggling with my mental health, however I’ve given myself a bit of a wake up call. We all vent on social media at some point in our lives, I tend to vent in my blog posts too, I mean we all need an outlet don’t we?
Now we all know that people can be cruel, especially if you’re different. It can be in any kind of way, but people can be cruel, you can end up feeling alienated, hurt, belittled and anxious. Bullying is not just something that happens as a child, it can also happen as an adult. No one deserves to be bullied, it should never happen in the first place, it is a cruel and awful thing that can have serious consequences for the person who is being bullied. I decided to write a letter to my bullies.
