This week I've been battling with a double edged sword.
On the one hand
- The Marie Claire UK website have published an article I've written. Which is great.
On the other hand ...
- It's illustrated with photos of me looking like this ...
Which is very much all my own fault of course.
It was my idea to pitch my Bad Portraits project to them as part of their 'Break Free from ...' campaign. And it went live last night as part of the 'Break free form body hate' week.
Now I'm left juggling the heady mix of having satisfied some professional ambition ... while feeling a little bit naked. [Like an anxiety dream where you get to go on a date with Jonny Lee Miller but you're wearing those lounge pants with the holes in. You know the ones I mean.]
So. Yes. I'm juggling double-edged swords. Naked.
This could be quite a dangerous time for me.
p.s: Thank you so much to all those who've left supportive comments on social media. It means a lot.
