I see it the same way I think about journaling about things that are running amuck in our minds. If something is really bothering me, making me sad or pissing me off, I let it all out in my journal.
The mere act of getting it out of your mind, pulling it off of that hamster wheel in your brain, and putting it somewhere else is such a freeing thing.
The thing with “taboo” topics is that EVERYONE already thinks about them. But hardly anyone talks about them.
I’m talking about menstrual blood, pubic hair, queefing, and all other glorious (sometimes hilarious) aspects of being female.
Ladies, we need to start talking — talking about what’s going on in our bodies.
Have you ever read something, or heard something, and found yourself going “Oh my God, me too! Me too!!”
Well, here’s the thing. Almost all of us are experiencing the same things, if not pretty stinking similar. And just by talking about them, telling other people about them, we open ourselves up to deep, meaningful conversation, connection and potential friendships.
There’s something powerful about sharing, and opening up. There’s this bonding quality.
An “I feel you girl!” moment.
Through out this whole, wild, beautiful journey of mine I have tried to be the one to start the conversation about all things taboo.
And the reaction has been so positively overwhelming.
So many “Thank God someone’s finally talking about this!” and “I wish I would have known this when I was 14!”
And do you know what else? It feels good. It feels so freaking good to talk openly about all things female.
Therefore, I challenge you to give it a go. That’s right. Get out there and talk about something taboo that’s been on your mind.
