It’s been a time since I last updated but honestly, I love the fact that you are the one area of my chaotic life that doesn’t require an apology.
I started this blog as a way to express myself without fear of what others would think or say. This is supposed to be my safe space but recently I allowed it to become yet another source of anxiety.
I set the site to private because I feared people I know would read it and recognise me.
Then I remembered a fantastic quote by an American novelist called Ann Lamott:
“You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.”
I own EVERYTHING that’s happened to me.
God knows, I have NO idea why life isn’t done with me yet when I feel so very done with it, but for whatever reason I am still here and I still have plenty to say.
I am going to tell my fucking stories. I am going to tell you absolutely everything.
And as for the ones who should’ve behaved better? Well, if you ever find yourself in this corner of the internet, kindly read, weep and move forwards as a more enlightened soul.
