    Fantastic post! Thank you for being so honest. I have been watching your YouTube channel for quite a few months now and am slowly working my way through your back catalogue (yesterday I watched 30+ of your videos 😂).

    When I first started watching your channel I though you were this amazing put together women. The kind I would never be friends with or relate to. I will admit I watched your videos because they were beautiful and aspirational for my little old life. I watched with the green eyed monster sat on my shoulder. I would think how pretty you are, how gorgeous your house is, how wonderful Max is. How supportive your husband is. I thought you had it easy.

    As I have watched more of your videos, I have realised you do not see yourself as above. We have many of the same worries, concerns etc. You have made
    me realise that I think all these Mum’s are judging me for not having my life together, for not being cool enough, for not having the right clothes, toys, brands etc. I have actually realised that it is me who has been judgemental.

    I have loved the smatterings of truths that come through in different videos. You truly seem like an amazing human! What you are writing about is so true.

    I am currently on a blog and social media (excluding YouTube) break, because I realised it was making me feel like shit!!! So I went cold turkey and disabled the lot. I plan to go back at some point, right now I am building my resilience up, my ability to not compare myself to these ‘filtered ‘ images. I am really enjoying the break at the moment and have been journaling to work out some issues.

    Anyway I am waffling, I just wanted to say I love your blog; I love your YouTube Chanel and I think I kind of just love you. [in a completely cute none creepy, stalkeriah way].

    You are AWESOME and inspirational… Thank you for sharing you 💕

    Hi Natasha – I totally get you here! Even though I am doing quite well, and make a living from what I’m doing, I constantly berate myself for not having better ‘numbers’. Well, I’ve stopped berating, kind of – work in progress. I’m just doing what I’m doing – keeping on creating. You are someone I look up to – and I know others do too – so it’s surprising that you feel like this too. Well done for being honest. We need to just create – and be happy that we get to create – tell stories that are meaningful for us, connect with other mothers. That shit is good – and we both do that pretty well I think so give yourself a pat on the back and I will too! X

What do you think?
