I realised in my haste to complete my very first blog post, I failed to tell you about Prudence.
Pru, as I like to refer to her, plays a massive role in my life currently, so it would be remiss of me not to introduce you to her.
She’s not my friend though, she’s actually my arch rival, and if this were a superhero movie, she’d be the baddie, cackling away in the background, plotting to bring me down in epic scenes of destruction.
You see Pru is constantly telling me I can’t, I shouldn’t, I’m not good enough. All day, every day. She’s the person holding me back from the awesome life I know I deserve with her negative bitching and bubble bursting comments.
Yes, people, I have an imaginary enemy.
She’s the self-sabotaging voice in my head.
OMG you’re thinking, she’s lost the plot! Who has an imaginary enemy? Wi-erd!
Well, folks, I do. And sadly she’s very much alive and kicking in my brain. And I really am struggling to shut her up.
So, I’ve had to take action. Enough is enough. Pru well and truly needs to do one if I’m going to get out of this comfort zone. I have therefore enlisted the help of a Life Coach. In the super hero movie, she’d be the one who flies in with her kick-ass get up and saves the day, banishing the evil witch, Pru, forever. Mwah-ha-haaaaa!!! Well that’s what I’m hoping, anyway! In reality, she’s going to give me the skills to say F**k Pru and I cannot wait!
I think ‘Prudence’ has certainly been put in her place with the start of this amazing blog! I think ‘she’ will soon become a very distant friend…. x x x 2017 matey! You’re on your way to nailing it! X
Let’s blummin’ hope so. She’s a pain in the proverbial! Thanks for your support x
I think you’ve already shown ‘Pru’ a thing or two! I’m really proud of you for doing this and as ever I think you’ve underestimated what you are capable of – you’re an amazing person and a very special friend to so many x
Your support and encouragement means everything. Thanks for your kind words and your continued friendship. Couldn’t have done this without people like you in my life xx
Sally just come across your blog. I hope you don’t mind? I really feel for you Sal. I suffered an ectopic pregnancy before my two arrived. I ended up seriously ill and one fallopian tube short. You are a brave and inspirational person who doesn’t deserve this SH_ T. Continue to kick Pru for six and how about enlisting the help of Prunella? She can tell you you can do all of the things you wish, you are a strong person, you have a lovely personality and a very kind heart plus you are a beautiful person too. Looking forward to 2017 and a new positive Sal. Love to you both xx
Thanks for your kind word, Sue. Really means a lot. Looks like we’re fellow one tube wonders 🙂 Great idea about Prunella too – I shall definitely be trying to tune in to her a lot more this year xx
