I am so excited to share with you the first guest post I received. It was SO interesting to hear from someone living a completely different life than I am. I tip my hat to them for being so open. I endlessly appreciate the honesty...If you're interested in posting please send any submissions to TinaTassels@gmail.com
I hope you enjoy the read and PLEASE comment below. Hopefully your fellow reader can get some incite, comfort, or just have something to read while bored at work ha!
"About a month ago I found out what a blog was and started reading yours I
love it! I read your new posts but I've been going backwards reading
some old ones. I really like the one where you wrote about your fam's
discovery of you doing Burlesque and I want to vent about one of the
comments you made. You talk about parents that want their children to
live the "normal" life...house in the suburbs, married, etc.
used to think that was the norm too until I started living it. To be
brutally honest living this life I've never felt more like an outcast in
my life. Talking to old friends and people I grew up with, I feel
like life long friends have nothing in common and/or can't relate to me
anymore. Since when did living in the burbs with your wife, cat, dog and
baby make you the minority? Is it just me that feels this way or do all
people in their late 20's early 30's feel uncomfortable with their
situations? Should I just chalk it up to me thinking that the grass is
greener on the other side or is our society changing? Is the new
hipster/outcast image becoming the 30 year old husband and wife
couple pushing their baby through the park? Living in the bubble I live
in, my acquaintances and I feel we are, for the first time, looking
at the world from the outside-in. Let's discuss. - Anonymous"
