Why is writting my “About Me” page so hard?

As a new blogger I have been struggling for some time now trying to write “about me”.

Countless hours writing and re-writing what I think I represent while still being interesting enough to the outside world. The truth is, I am who I am. People will either like me, my posts, my blogs, my tweets etc. or they won’t. I need to accept that not everyone will like me. I may not become the most popular in my niche and I am ok with that. This is something I have always struggled with. The need to be perfect. The need to have everyone like me.

I suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I won’t go into detail with that now, but every day I learn that there are many people out there that suffer from the same condition. I would love to hear about it if you suffer from it too!

When I made the decision to start blogging, I knew that it was going to be a feat. Constantly questioning if what I have wrote will be well accepted. Numerous drafts sitting, waiting to be published but the need to make them bigger and better holds me back from pressing that publish button. I am working on this.

I don’t have a picture of my face on my profiles. Why? I’m not sure exactly. Am I afraid to show my face to world? Afraid that that will expose who I really am? Why does that matter? The day will come and I will hesitantly press that upload button. That will be a proud day for me. A leap forward.

Although sometimes it feels this way, this condition does not define who I am.

I am 32 years old. I have two wonderful boys. I am amicably divorced after 10yrs of marriage. I am now with a wonderful man who also has two kids of his own. They are great kids too and all the kids get along great!…thank god!

I work full time, I have a great career, however I am not passionate about what I do.

I am however, passionate (Obsessed) about skincare, makeup, fashion, home décor etc. My eyes light up when I see beautiful things, when I create beautiful things.

My anxiety helped create this passion because when I do something, I do it full force! I spend hours upon hours researching products and brands to assure that the Cost vs Quantity vs Quality is the best choice I could possibly make.

My Blog will primarily be about beauty, fashion, and home décor. However, as a mother, anxiety sufferer and a human being, sometimes I will stray from my niche and discuss things that are important to me and my life. And that’s ok.

Thank you to everyone that supports me and my journey through this blog. I am incredibly grateful for all comments and likes as it keeps me motivated knowing that someone out there is listening.

  1. When I read this I thought, are you reading my mind or something?! I feel so similar! It’s hard putting yourself out there and you did an amazing job writing this. I think hearing about other people feeling the same way really connects us. So keep up the awesome work!! – Katie
