Yesterday I filmed a video related to my period and posted it to all the things. It got a surprising number of likes… and an unsurprising amount of mean comments.
Someone asked “why would you post something like this?” and someone else replied something to the effect of, “People will do anything for attention. It’s sad.”
And at first, my feelings were hurt. I deleted the comment and gave my screen the bird.
And then I thought about it and had one of those “ohhhhhh” moments.
I am ABSOLUTELY doing this for attention.
I 100% shared a short video talking about how I bought the wrong pads for attention.
And there’s a reason.
I am here typing these words and creating these videos and sharing my life because I am creating a community for women where they feel seen and heard and understood.
The more I share about me and my life and all the things, the deeper I go, the more embarrassing I get, the more real stuff I talk about, the more those watching and reading will feel like someone gets them. Like someone understands. Like maybe they’re not alone in this world with their struggles. That maybe we’re ALL struggling with the same things but none of us know it because no one is talking about it so
Here I am.
Talking about it.
And I’m going to talk about all the things. Mental health, therapy, everyday moments, funny stories, being a wife and mom and content creator and this weird life I’ve chosen and these weird parts of my life that have chosen me.
Because I want you and every woman out there to know that they are not alone, the it is safe to feel the way you feel, that we’re all in this together.
And so, yeah, I’m doing it for attention. And also to hopefully help support my family. But I’m doing it with a bigger purpose which is to encourage and empower women to love themselves and live their lives unapologetically.
I’m glad you’re here.
