I’ve always tried my best to love myself, even though sometimes it can be a hard thing to do because we all know when we have bad days, we can look in the mirror or go about our daily lives and just see all these flaws! Do you know what though, even though I notice my flaws, I’m learning to love them, and I do want change them, I want to embrace them and be a good egg. I spoke previously about saying no one is perfect here and it came up on my timeline not so long ago and I wanted to expand upon it to show that we all struggle with certain things, it’s natural!
I’ve lived with Paul pretty much since we got together because he literally stayed at my house all the time! I think when you live with someone everything definitely changes, you learn so much about your partner but also you tend to see them in a different light. It doesn’t mean you don’t love them, it is just changes things in your relationship when you live with them! So in the last 6 years that I have lived with this human, what have I learned?
Let’s be honest, being a 00s kid was honestly the best thing ever! Anyone who says different is probably gonna have to answer to me! Anyway, I loved growing up in the 00s, mainly because there were so many good things about the 00s, but there were also some epic fails too – some of which I am definitely guilty of (sorry 00s) and I would show pictures but I’m not even joking when I say they’re pretty embarrassing. So what were some of the best bits about growing up in the 00s and have I learned from the fails?
Numbers, numbers, numbers, they dictate a hell of a lot in our lives, whether it is our clothes sizes, shoe sizes, even the amount of followers we have a number pretty much defines everything. I think I’ve got to the point in my life where I’m honestly not worrying about the numbers which are supposed to define me. The main ones are to do with my blog and my size, I’ve lost a hell of a lot of weight and worked really hard on continuing that journey and being healthy, I’m not going to be defined by a number – including with my blog, but why?
What not a lot of people don’t know is my mum is deaf, she is one of the strongest people I know but it’s a hidden disability. I think the thing with deafness is the fact that people don’t see how truly isolating it can be, you could be in a room filled with people you can feel so lonely. When you can’t hear people, or when people are trying to talk but are speaking away from you and you can’t lip read it is so hard. So why is deaf awareness week so important?
