If you’ve felt like an outsider in the blogging world for some reason or the other, you’re not the only one. But it doesn’t really last for long. Last year, I wrote a post about my struggles to fit in which you can find here; talking mostly about the blogging world. I’ve been blogging for 8 months now; time does fly, and I’ve always felt like I didn’t belong. Maybe because I’m so far away, because I don’t know a lot of people, because I don’t have loads of followers on social networks like other bloggers do, or because I’ve always had a hard time getting close to people. Whatever the reason actually was, I’ve always felt like an outcast in the blogging world.
I’ve joined different blogger group chats and pods just so I could get to know more people and actually feel like I was part of something but nothing ever worked because I could never really keep a conversation with everyone so I’d just give them space. Until recently when the beautiful Becca followed me on Twitter. She created a pod and was looking for people to add; so I asked to be added. Later on, a few others came along. Now we have Katie (Kt), Becca (Bec), Natalie (Nat), Sophie (Soph), Ashia, Alexandra (Alex), Jessica (Jess), Giana (Gi), Laura, Asyia (Sia) and San; we shortened our names. We’re the most supportive group ever. We can’t post something on insta, Twitter, or our blog and not get the best support or engagement. We’re literally on top each other’s feed. We just don’t send posts; we chat and engage with one another.
Like Jess said, “if you don’t support other bloggers, are you even doing it right?” I admire these girls so much and they’re such amazing people. I never really talk about my issues with people but with them, I feel so comfortable letting it out. And the kind of love and support they show is unimaginable. I haven’t known them up to a month but it feels like I’ve known them forever and for the first time, I don’t feel like an outcast around people. I’ll just say a little about them.
Nat is an amazing individual; beautiful inside and out, and such an angel. I’ve only known her for a few weeks and I admire her so much. She’s someone who has been through a lot; and now she’s dedicating herself to help people with mental health issues. She’s such an amazing person and words can’t really describe her. Bec is such a young, beautiful, and amazing girl. She’s being through a lot as well and I admire her so much. I would basically do anything for her because I understand her; and seeing how she’s struggling to find her inner strength makes me so happy and proud. Kt is extremely talented, beautiful; understanding and the best person I’ve ever met. She makes the best blog headers too and I love supporting and encouraging her because she does such a magnificent job.
Laura is really pretty; her clothes are goals and she’s extremely gorgeous; her insta is lit and she offers the best social media advice; girl is just so gorgeous! Alex is still new and our time zones are different so we barely chat but the little time I got to chat with her, I admire her dreams, aspirations, and goals; plus she takes care of kids! Sia is super funny! She’s being anonymous; for the time being. But who doesn’t love a good mystery? Although she’s a bit busy for now, but she manages to create time. Soph, Ashia, Jess, Gi, and San are a bit busy but we still chat and it’s always fun; they’re just as amazing as everyone else. On Friday, we had a late night chat around 12am and it felt like it wasn’t late; we get so caught up in conversations and how helpful these girls are is fabulous.
I feel so comfortable and safe around them; and I’m someone who’s frail and distant, I push people away, I’m not a huge fan of girls, I don’t open up to people, and all that. But knowing I have these girls around me gives me some kind of happiness and strength. There are things I would’ve done but having them around has made me see things in a different way; and I’m grateful. I’m a firm believer in “nothing lasts forever” but I hope this last because they’ve become my strength; and I, theirs. And besides being bloggers, we’re friends and for the first time, I can firmly say that girls support each other; and not all girls compete with one another. Plus, they’ve made hearts a thing. I’m so lucky to have met this girls; they inspire me in every sense of the word; and now I sound so corny❤
