But there are changes that can be made to eradicate these conversation derailers and work to prevent this continuing to happen to women.
Books like this are just one we can start tackling the root cause of problems that build a society where women fear to walk home alone.
As human remains are found in the search for Sarah Everard, who went missing on the 3rd of March and a male Met Police Officer has been arrested, the same topics of ‘not all men’, male on male crime and victim blaming come careering to the forefront to try and derail conversations. But there are things we can start to do to change the narritive and improve society.
This title sounds very dramatic but I couldn’t think of a softer way to say things. Once again, I’ve come back to my blog when I feel like I need it most. So much for trying to post more regularly again now, we all know it’s a lie every time I say it. An unintentional lie, I hasten to add, but this time I’m not gonna say it! Maybe this will be the first post of a regular posting spree, maybe it’s not.
Anyway, I’m back to blogging because I need to write and find the comfort I get from blogging again.
Hello there! It’s been a while, hasn’t it?! I’m not going to apologise, I am a little sad it’s been so long but I’m back and hopefully able to dedicate a bit more time over the next weeks and months to my writing, which excites me.
What happened? Well, life happened. I did really well churning out content in March and I was so happy with all that, but to be honest I’d given up social media and funnily enough had a lot more time on my hands *hangs head in shame* and I was in a proper routine. I went away in April which threw things off kilter and then at the end of the month some big changes happened. I’m not going into details but since then I’ve been metaphorically flailing around not quite sure what to do. I’ve had some pretty big emotions going on with it all too so it’s been hard, I’m not gonna hide that.
I chose the picture for this post because the sea is obviously apt for the post title but now I kinda wanna go back to the warm seas of Mykonos in May (snapped this on my hols last year) instead of being in the snowy depths of Essex in Winter (I say winter, it’s March ffs)…
Anyway, I decided to start blogging again as I said in my first post and it’s because I’m feeling a little bit confused about life and want to blog and write to feel better.
Don’t get me wrong, from the outside looking in, I know my life is pretty sweet and for that I am very grateful. I’m married, have a good job at a great company getting to do all sorts of cool stuff in the West End of London and I go on many a cool adventure but deep down, there’s some niggles there and I need somewhere to write them out and process them. So that’s gonna be here.
I’ve actually kept the post title of the WordPress ‘holding post’ they put on themes before you add your own. Part of me thinks it’s a really cliched title, but annoyingly, it’s also quite apt.
It’s not because anything is dramatically changing in my life right now, I’m not starting a new career, moving half way round the world or having a baby. I am, a little less dramatically, coming back to blogging.
