I almost couldn't believe the outpouring of support. So many people wrote to say that they were just like me. I can't even express how refreshing it was to read all the reminders that we are not alone in our personal struggles.
We are all human. Who are we trying to kid with all this perfection bullshit?
In my post I invited other bloggers to share their own, "I'm Afraid" blogs. I am so impressed with these brave women (no men, interesting) who were willing to come clean in the name of transparency. Please check out these great posts from bloggers sharing the things they might otherwise be afraid to tell you.
If you are a blogger I invite you join in with me on the "I'm Afraid to Post This Blog," mission. What are you afraid to share with your readers? I think it is important to portray a transparent, real world, real life, fitness journey complete with our faults and struggles. Even the most famous, most fit, most compelling blogger has some areas of imperfection in their lives. When we share our imperfections, it goes a long way in showing others that perfection is not the goal, or even reality. I believe that steady progress, growth, and a well-rounded healthy lifestyle is the goal, complete with all internal struggles that go along with being a human being.
Who is in? I'll link back to your blog posts here if you decide to share your own, "I'm Afraid to Post This Blog." Just submit your post to email@example.com
It is not too late. Send me your post and I will add it. Men? Where are you?
