I love sharing. Sharing my outfits and my obsessions with you guys is what I love doing.
This post was just going to be a simple post talking about this look, but when I sat down to write about the clothes, it didn’t seem authentic and there was something more serious I needed to voice.
What a week. A week that went too fast and too slow at the same time. There’s something I wanted to share with you all that I don’t talk about. This is as out of place for me as posting on a Saturday. But here I am, doing both.
I’m not sure how many of you follow me on Instagram, but if you do, you may have noticed that I haven’t posted on there in almost a week, which I haven’t done in years! It’s been that kind of week. I don’t talk a whole lot on my personal life, because honestly I don’t think my life is all that interesting, I’m a real life couch potato. I love fashion and I love that it’s my thing that can set me apart from everyone else and it’s an outlet for creativity. But I feel like I can end up hiding behind my blog. Sometimes it can be all about the clothes and I forget to take care of the person that’s underneath them. Me, Laura. I deal heavily with anxiety and a lot of people don’t know that about me. I hide it and I’m comfortable hiding it because then it means I don’t have to talk about it. Anxiety is such raw subject and it shouldn’t be played off lightly. It’s real. It sucks. It’s exhausting.
This week, my anxiety has been the most prominent it has been in a while. It’s like knowing your worst enemy is coming into town and trying to avoid them at all costs but every corner you turn, they’re there. I can honestly say stepping back and actually taking a break, no posting anywhere has really helped me. I sometimes forget that I’m the one that’s in control of myself, if that makes sense. I forget that I have the authority to say, “Laura, step back breath and just rest” and I’ve just taken time to myself this week. Please remember to take care of yourself before anyone else.
Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for. – 1 Peter 5:7
Know that there is always someone out there that cares for you and you mean so much to this world.
