First of all, it’s completely ok not to have your shit together. The point of this blog is not to have you achieve perfection. I don’t know if anyone ever really reaches that point where they finally figure it ALL out. We’re all still constantly trying though, right? It’s the journey, not the destination that matters.
Although I don’t always like it, being imperfect is ok! It reminds me to strive to be better in all facets of life and has made me learn some valuable lessons along the way. As a perfectionist, I’m learning that failure is fine, as long as you learn from your mistakes, move forward, and treat yourself with compassion.
Purpose of this blog: There have been many hilarious/depressing/embarrassing experiences in my life where I really contemplated if this type of stuff happens to anyone else. For example, I found myself in situations where I would be saying “Of course this would happen to me,” “Does this shit seriously happen to anyone else?!” or just “Fuck my life.”
When there were those times I either felt stuck or just alone, I wondered if there were genuine, down to earth people going through the same thing as me.
Being a private person, I realized that after revealing my dating/relationship/life stories, people could relate to me. What a shock–we are all going through the same human experience. My goal is to share current and past personal experiences and continue to do things that will challenge me and make me grow. I will also talk to as many people as I can from all walks of life and tell their stories as well.
Most importantly, I want this to be a source of female (or male) empowerment. We bitches need to start being more supportive of each other, instead of tearing each other down. I hope this can be a non-judgmental forum where people can just relax and realize they are not going through this shit alone. If nothing else comes out of this blog, I hope it can at least become a place where you can go read a story that will make you laugh, make you cry, or empower you to make a change in your life.
Now go try and get your shit together.
