Well, where does one start.
I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100% that woman that wants to share her story (you just sang that).
I guess I should start with a humble brag that I built this website all by myself. Sure it took days, but for someone with the attention span of a goldfish and technology induced rage I think I did ok.
I have had a small amount of practice writing skincare blogs for my business website, Reef Skincare (check it out) but I have to admit that I have been a little bit slack updating it.
You see, I was wanting to help MORE and put my truth out there and recently I have had a huge shift where I feel like it is my time. My time to speak, be seen and be heard and step out from the shadows. Not just the shadow from other people, but the self imposed shadow I THOUGHT I was under and probably never was.
I will share some stories that some of my family and friends may know and some that they probably won’t.
Mum is already questioning whether I want to put this content out there in a ‘not-so-private-place’ the interweb.
Short answer, yes. I’m ready.
I am a people pleaser from way back and never used to share my real feelings. Because of this, I found myself feeling hurt and insecure by friends leaving me out or feeling slighted over something someone said when in fact they had no idea that I was even hurting.
I was suuuuper sensitive (and also a Cancer, so add moody and introverted into the mix) then the sudden and traumatic death of someone close to my family made me realise that life is way too short to be feeling like this all the time. It wasn’t easy but I sought out help in way of a psychologist, I set up boundaries, did A LOT of reading and I vowed to find my happiness.
I’ll delve a little deeper in future posts but I will leave you with this; you are not responsible for what someone says or does to you, but you are responsible for how you respond.
