Do you ever have that feeling when you just want to escape? Wake up in another country with no bad memories in the back of your head. Just wake up somewhere new and get a new start to everything. I do.
I'm pretty stubborn when it comes to standing up for myself and being open about everything I've gone through and still go through. I open up about everything from suffering from eating disorders to growing up in a painful industry. People think they know me in a way or another since they've followed me on social media for years. Some of my readers have followed me since I was 12!! How crazy is that?
I often feel bad for hiding all my problems and all misery for such a long time. It took me almost 8 years to get to the point where I found the courage to say no. I've gotten a lot of questions and requests to write about my story here on the blog. But I don't think this is a thing that can be written. I feel that you need to listen to really understand. That's why I'm so happy (and relieved) that the podcast I'm guesting is coming out in less than two weeks. You'll be able to hear my whole story. The real one. Not the one you've been following through social media since I started working as an artist. It feels like a 100kg stone is falling off my shoulders when I get to share this with you.
And when it comes to the part about wanting to run away, it's mostly because I sometimes feel like a prisoner to my past. I will always be known as the girl who sings. The winner of that song competition. The artist. Etc. But at least, now I get to share the true story with you guys! Which helps a lot. :)
I'll announce the release date for the pod very soooon and I hope you are as excited to listen as I am to share this with you. Big love.
