A time for questioning
After my third relationship breakdown and many periods of depression, anxiety and self-hate throughout my life, I started to question everything I knew about the world around me. This included what others expected of me as a woman and what I expected from myself.
I came to the conclusion that I’d spent most of my life trying to live up to an ideal that isn’t achievable, is based on lies perpetuated by the media and society, and deep down, is not true to who I am. No wonder I’d had such a hard time.
Gradually, as the fog cleared, I started to live differently.
I don’t have all the answers, I’m still learning as I go. In this section, I share with you the things that I’ve learned, some of the mistakes that I’ve made, and hopefully inspire you to think a little bit differently about how we live and what we’ll accept, with a view to living a more empowered life.
