Yes, I diet.
Yes, I exercise.
Yes, I get Botox.
Yes, I have a nightly face routine.
Yes, I’ve lost 40 pounds since December.
No, I don’t have hair extensions.
No, I haven’t had any plastic surgery.
No, I don’t have an eating disorder.
No, I’m not told what to do by Nick.
What I have developed is some sort of stomach issue that cannot be figured out. Multiple tests, doctors’ appointments, throwing up in a drive thru cup at any given time, and lots of pain, prayers, and tears has become the current new normal.
People are so quick to judge and say things that they “assume” could be going on. We live in such a sad time that any woman should have to justify anything because of hateful comments.
Can we normalize checking on each other and making sure everything is ok?
The strong friends are normally the ones dealing with the most.
Can we normalize supporting women who choose to take care of themselves?
Girl, be proud of yourself and how far you’ve come.
Can we also normalize stay at home moms who are successful and have a career they are able to do at home?
Because for those saying, “She’s spoiled, she gets to stay at home,” I have a real estate’s license in two states, work with a broker who flips multiple houses a month, run two businesses my husband and I own, and take care of three precious babies. All while my husband is 15 hours away for work.
Can we quit bashing women who like to wear makeup and dress up?
I mean have you tried Bobby Brown- Highlighting Powder? Because it’s enough to make you want to become the CEO your parents always wanted you to marry.
Can we all just be kind and spread more love?
It takes a lot more effort to gossip and try to figure out someone else’s life than it does to just be kind. Besides, would your momma be proud of the bully you’ve become?
Mental health is a real thing. Hateful comments and rumors only make certain situations worse. Those that are having hateful comments directed towards them (like me) also have feelings and are human.
Remember… The way you make people feel is your reputation.
