I want to be a better human being
I’m so very lucky to have this job and all the perks that come with it. Yes I worked for it all, I never gave up, but I do understand that I’m very fortunate to be in this position. I used to sell some of my unused beauty products on Depop, they were more often than not PR gifts that I was never going to use for whatever reason. I mentioned doing this in one of my weekly vlogs and a few people commented and said they were disappointed to hear that I was doing that. That word, ‘disappointed’ really hit me hard. I read through their comments and their point of view was that these products cost me nothing and that I am in a position where I am fortunate enough to not have to buy lots of beauty products, therefore they should be donated to women who need them. If I’m being honest, I had never even considered doing this before, but what scared me most is that it had never even occurred to me to do this. I am honest enough to admit that I am selfish, I always want more, and this handful of comments really hit home, and for that I’m very grateful. I think lots of YouTubers consider these kind of comments to be ‘hate’ but it’s actually constructive criticism and I value these comments equally as much as the really lovely positive ones, because they make me stop and think, rationalise, and change.
There are lots of things I’m looking into at the moment to support various charities, including my number one passion, dogs. I just want to help more, wherever and however I can, even if it’s just spreading the word on social media, donating a few lipsticks or getting involved in that protest. I know I can be a better person so it’t time to get my ass into gear and do it.
