I'm a terrible speller,
I don't know where the commas should go, and there might be a run on sentence here or there.
You know, I saw this quote the other day, and it really hit me. It applies to so many of us.
Trust me- I am loud and gross. I did write a whole chapter about farts!
I've been told I apologize like an abused child and my parents never hit my sister or I.
I do love a good selfie, sadly, I'm not the best at it.
I am a sarcastic fuck.
I wrote my first book to help other girls who possibly felt alone in some of the struggles we go through. If you take a look on social media- it can sometimes be a dark place. Seeing other girls lives, how perfect it is, how good they look- and here you are, looking like nine miles of bad road. I'm totally guilty of doing it. We're all guilty for doing it. And I'm so sick of it. If they look good at that time, good for them. Your time will come. Lets build each other up, including ourselves. People are always saying "Let's build each other up" and YES! Let's do it, but let's not tear ourselves down in the process.
But I think the line that hit most close to home is
"Stop saying "Because I have a boyfriend" and start saying "because I said so."
Throughout my life, as a young girl, one of my biggest issues was when a guy was interested in me, but I didn't return those feelings, I would feel bad. I would actually get severe anxiety over hurting a boys feelings because I didn't like him back. To the point where the anxiety made me sick. And as I've gotten older, I thankfully grew out of that. I'm 29 years old, and at this point in my life, I know what I want. And if I'm not interested, I'm just not. It's ok. It's ok to be picky. To have standards. I'm not a bitch by saying "no thanks." And I feel like in society, it's fine for a guy to blow you off, no big deal. Boys will be boys. But if a girl tries it, it's like HOW DARE YOU! You're so mean! And sorry! I'm not buying that anymore. If you're not interested, that's all there is to it. It's about YOU and what YOU WANT. No one else. I wish I would have known and felt like this years ago. It would have saved me A LOT of unwanted anxiety. All I can say is, live and learn!
