There is so much that I want this page to say, and I really don’t want to fuck it up. But I might. Cause real life.
I have struggled through some big portions of my life. The funny part about that, is that I wasn’t totally aware that I was struggling. I thought it was normal to have a “struggle” or deal with issues. While others do indeed struggle and have issues and hardships they’ve had to deal with in their lives, it is not normal to not talk about it. It is not normal to not ask for help. It is not normal to think that this is the way that you have to go through life. Because you 100% do not. There are others that want to share your pain, to hear what you are going through, to know what they can do to help you. It took me a long time to learn to ask for help, and to allow myself to talk about the issues that I had. But I finally got there.
And its not just about needing to learn to ask for the help of others. You also have to learn how to help yourself. To know that it’s ok to not have it all together, and taking care of yourself and healing sure as shit wont happen over night. Sorry.
You, are a warrior. You have been through hard things. And its not a competition. This community is for all who have a seat on the struggle bus. For a long time that’s how I justified not asking for help. I shamed myself into thinking, well there are others out there who are way worse off than I am, and who have gone through way worse things, so I need to suck it up and deal with my own problems and not be a whiner. I must not be very strong if I can’t handle these things on my own. Only the people who have real problems need help. Wrong.
If you’ve had issues in your life, big or small, then they are real. There isn’t a measuring stick that says, you must be this fucked up to need help. I had to hear that over and over again to get it through my head. And now I want you to get it through yours.
My goal for Virago is to create a community of badass, supportive, warrior women, who are wanting to share the journey of reaching their goals, and getting a little organized help to do it. I’ve got ya babe.
