End of Year Reflection -2018

Heyyooo,

I thought I’d do a short little post today and I figured what better way to end off this year than with a reflect with me. I’m not even going to bother with making the intro any longer because the more I write, the cringier it gets😂😂 So without further ado:

What one event are you going to tell your grandkids about?

Rehab-life changing

Describe 2018 in three words

OH.MY.CHEESECAKE!!!

What or who are you most thankful for?

I’m thankful for therapy, and the friends I made in rehab, my old psychiatrist and psychologist, the blogosphere. I literally would not be here without any of those things and I’m eternally thankful.

If someone wrote a book about your year, what genre would it be?

I lowkey want to say horror butttt, drama,straight up. That’s my life in a nutshell, that stuff follows me everywhere.Sometimes I’ll look back on my day and question how it’s possible that I don’t have a reality tv show yet😂

What had the biggest positive impact on your life this year?

The blogosphere. Honestly, I’m constantly blown away by how kind and loving and supportive and understanding and open-minded everyone is. It’s brought so much light into my life.

What activities made you lose track of time this year?

Writing, listening to Frank Ocean, daydreaming, trampolining , art therapy

What was the most important lesson you learnt in 2018?

Mental health comes first, always.

What was your favourite moment spent with friends?

A few weeks after I got out of rehab my friend V, came to visit Joburg because she’d moved away and we went trampolining and I didn’t touch my phone the entire day because I was just so happy and in the moment and it was just a really magical day.

What major goal did you lay the foundation for?

-Talking more about mental health

》Friday 6PM

》Talking about my personal experiences more

What book/movie affected your life in a profound way?

The Catcher In The Rye by J.D Salinger

What did you discover about yourself?

I’ve discovered that I don’t really reach out to people when I need help, which is sad but understandable because I’m reluctant to lean on people in case they leave me lol.

AM I A FEMINIST?

Am I a feminist?

This is a question that’s been bothering me for a while because whilst I kind of consider myself to be one, others may not. And yes I realise this is from Urban Dictionary.

Also I just wanted to let you know that this is one of those posts where I rant and rant and ramble on til my brain feels like it’ll explode.

What Is Feminism To Me?

Feminism is about girls women empowering one another! It’s about having equal rights, and being respected. It’s about society getting over the unrealistic expectations they set for women. It’s about stopping slut-shaming and gender-based violence, it’s about people getting the hell over all the stupid things they’ve been brainwashing females with for the past however many years.

I am so sick of women and young feeling that they need to fulfil this fantasy of the perfect woman. It’s DISGUSTING. Plain, and simple, putting it out there, it’s bloody disgusting. The idea that women are all supposed to fit into this mould of the perfect woman when each and every single one is us is different and gorgeous for being so.

I just wanna live in a world(and I realise how sadly unrealistic this sounds) where women and men have equal rights.

A world in which women aren’t treated like objects, and gender based violence isn’t a thing, a world where nobody gives a damn how on fleek your eyebrows and people care more about empowering one another.

If being a feminist is about supporting the later, then I guess I am. I have probably shared the quote below a million times but it is one of my absolute FAVES and I feel like its speaks volumes about the person I’m trying to be.

In 2018 I hope this becomes more of a reality:

Teach girls to worry less about fitting into glass slippers and more about shattering glass ceilings

Do you agree or disagree with Urban dictionary’s top definition of feminism?Do you consider yourself a feminist?
