You know when you are reading an article and it just resonates with you so much? Well that happened to me yesterday when I was reading ‘Stylist Magazine’ on the train home. The title of the piece ‘Why do women care so much?’ really made me think deeply about a few things, about myself, my anxiety issues and blogging. The main premise of the article (although I don’t agree with everything in it) talks about our obsession with what other people think of us.
“Women, especially, are expected to tiptoe around clutching their lifetime report cards to their modestly covered chests, proffering them meekly up to family, friends, loved ones and complete strangers alike, forever doing things they don’t want to do and not doing things they want to do in the hope of a few tacky gold stars for good behaviour”
