As you can see from the dates of my posts, I should make one of my primary goals to get better at blogging. Well…let’s just add it to the list! I am going to get better at blogging though, because I have so much that I want to share with you. And I hope that you want to share with me as well!
Part of my reason for writing this blog is to share my story with you. For such a long time, I’ve felt like I’m living my life on an island. I’m fortunate to be physically surrounded with family, friends, co-workers and others that I see and interact with on a daily basis. Mentally though I feel like there’s no one that gets me. No one that understands who I am and my struggles. Very few of these people do I even feel comfortable enough around to be my true, authentic self.
Some of the limitations I’ve created on my own in my head by making assumptions about these people. “She won’t understand what it’s like to be fat. She’s healthy and goes running four days every week.” In reality, I don’t know her story, and I shouldn’t make this assumption. She may be struggling with overeating and binging as well but managing the potential for weight gain by being bulimic.
The other aspect is that I don’t feel like I’ve found my tribe yet. If this blog helped me find my posse, it would be winner, winner chicken dinner for me for sure!! So yeah…if you find yourself relating to anything I share, I’d love for you to comment and share so I can get to know you!
