So many women spend their lives Smiling on the Outside, fearing the judgment of others and having their secret shame discovered. I understand because I lived that way for decades.
We call that a go Me, too! Moment.
At The Me, too! Movement, our goal is to put an end to all that by creating Me, too! Moments whenever possible. You see, it’s pretty simple. When two or more come together and share a conversation where shameful secrets are revealed, the two most healing words in the world, are Me, too.
When we hear those words, we know we’re not alone, we’re not the only one, and we’re not crazy either. We are validated. We are connected. We are that much closer to freedom, joy, and love.
And this is why I share these kinds of conversations on the Straight Talk for a Curvy World® podcast. It’s why I wrote the book, Smiling on the Outside: Secrets, Sex, Shame and the Search for Self-Love. It’s why you’re reading this, and it’s why I founded The Me, too! Movement.
The Me, too! Movement is on a mission to reach 1,000,000 women by 2020. Women who are currently living in pain with silent shame, fearing the judgment of others and being found out. The women who believe there is safety in silence. Just like I did.
We can’t do this alone. Whether you’re one of the fortunate ones who doesn’t have a Me, too! to share and graciously wants to support The Me, too! Movement or you’ve been silent for too long, and you’re ready to release your shame, Welcome. I’m so glad we’ve found each other!
