If you read my post yesterday, I talked about all my favourites of 2021. I also wanted to talk about the tough or the not so great moments of 2021 since I feel like it’s important to be real on here. So often we only share the good times to make it look like our lives are perfect but they aren’t. Here is my not so favourites list from 2021.
Worst Memory – Just the entire second wave of COVID in India. Talking about it still tears me up and breaks my heart – so I’m not going to go into the details. It left me depressed and anxious. I went back to binge eating to just start feeling alive and happy. It was a really bad time. I’m glad to have made it to the other side.
Worst blogging moment– I don’t know if this person still follows me, but someone commented on one of Tia and my sustainability challenge posts saying that we’re making close to no impact by doing these things. They did a follow up post on their blog about it. While I appreciate their honestly, it is a little bit of a bummer because in ALL of my sustainability posts I do mention how being imperfectly sustainable is the goal.
Worst performing post – *sigh* I jotted down my feelings in a post about the Afghanistan issue and boy, did it not do well. I understand that it targeted a lot of countries but the idea behind the post was to target policy makers not regular people.
Worst Date – I do not exaggerate when I say that a man literally said ‘I LOVE YOU’ to me on a first date. A FIRST DATE!!!!! I totally freaked out and ran away but OH GODDDDDD, the date was horrible. I am sure he wasn’t in love with me, he was just forcing things to work out between us and that was just so awkward.
Should I do a worst dates post?
Worst Skincare – I got myself some MURAD skincare (thankfully all sample sized) to try out – and it was SO bad. I broke out like crazy. I tried them out twice with a gap of 3-4 weeks to make sure it was the skincare breaking me out and it was. And it was the kind of break out that took weeks to calm down. I think the products were fragranced which could have also caused the breakout.
Worst Feeling – I’ve put on 8kgs this year after working very hard over the past few years to be healthy and in shape. While I have made my peace with the weight gain, the not fitting into 60% of my wardrobe bit sucks. Everytime I take out something to wear and it is tight – it breaks my heart. It’s also annoying when people comment on it – cause come on – it’s not like you’re telling me something new – I know and I honestly don’t mind as long as I am working towards a healthier lifestyle.
Aaaah, there I shared my lows of 2021 too. What were some of your hard moments? Share and let readers know that it isn’t as rosy as we usually show in our blogs. 🙂
