For most of my life I have wanted to be invisible, I have been very insecure about my physical appearance being so overweight. I have very few photos of me during childhood through to well into my late 20's. Being in front of a camera would mean that there was actual evidence, proof that I looked the way that I did.
After finishing the book, "Rising Strong" by Brene Brown, the final pages really resonated with me. She was talking about rumbling with different emotions and a couple them really stuck out to me. Pain and trauma. The reason these stuck out so much for me is because my childhood was filled with both.
So this isn't about not caring at all, it's more focused on caring about things that actually matter. Like yourself, and your happiness. And essentially, giving zero f**cks about anything that gets in your way. Here's the no BS guidelines, so you can start caring more about yourself and less about that which distracts you from being your best.
There is something so freeing when you get to the point whereby you are comfortable asking for 'a table for one'. Even a few years ago I would have shuddered at the thought of looking like some sad loner who had completely let herself go eating mediocre chicken in what is essentially a youth centre, bare faced! Yet here I am. And actually feeling pretty darn good about it.
