Hey there, Sparklers 🙂
Today I wanted to talk to you about something. As you may or may not know, I uploaded a video on YouTube on Friday about Period Stories.
Now, let me explain WHY I uploaded this video. Many women, like myself, are or were embarrassed about their periods. There’s just something about them. If an accident happens and you’re not in your own home, it can be absolutely traumatising. The majority of women have these horror stories about their periods and they’re too embarrassed to mention it. I was exactly the same.
But, women should NOT be embarrassed about periods. It’s a natural thing that most women go through. And the majority of MATURE men are not grossed out by it. Everybody knows about “mother nature” whether they’re men or women. And although periods are an inconvenience, and some embarrassing moments do come along with them, what’s the big deal??
I’ve watched a few videos similar to mine on YouTube, and in all honesty it made me realise that it’s no big deal, and there’s no need to be embarrassed. So, to help other women realise that, I posted this video. Some may like it, some may think it’s a bit too much. But my intention was to lighten up the subject.
Now, because of this video, I’ve received some horrible, disgusting, inhumane comments. They have been deleted, because I refuse to be a laughing stock purely because of what some immature boys said.
I was told, and I quote, “Fuck you and fuck your videos, you fat pig” and “nobody likes you, go and kill yourself piggy”.
What is the need? Seriously? Luckily, despite my depression, anxiety AND lack of self-confidence, I refused to let these comments bother me because they came from an account with a weird name and no picture. I knew exactly what they were doing and just rose above it. But what if I didn’t? What if it really hurt me and I believed/agreed with what they said? What if I ACTUALLY DID kill myself. How would they feel then? They’d have someone else’s blood on their hands and for what?
I know I’m a bit overweight, and I’m trying to get fitter. But the weight is caused by medical conditions, having a baby and depression. It’s not going to just drop off of me. I know I’m not the best looking person in the world, but to call me a pig is just horrible.
My point is, NEVER give people hate because you just don’t know what they’re going through. This person told someone who already has depression to go and kill herself. It could have ended very badly if I didn’t have the willpower. I love what I do on YouTube. I may not be that popular, I may not have thousands of subscribers, but that doesn’t mean you can belittle me when all I’m doing is trying to achieve my dream.
Luckily, I have a little thing called GIRL POWER and it’s going to take a lot more than that to discourage me and make me give up my blog or my YouTube channel.
The lesson here folks, is to never hate on anyone, never judge a book by it’s cover and never ever bully.
Thank you to all the LOVELY people who read and watch my stuff. I’m lucky that 99% of my readers/viewers are positive and supportive. For that, I’m forever grateful.
Thanks for taking the time to read this post. The next time I post, everything will be back to normal.
Lots of love,
