I just wanted to say that I’m so proud to see all the amazing reactions and support that I’ve been getting! Last month I posted a picture on Instagram where I was talking about sexual abuse and it’s great to see how women are stepping up and sharing their stories! Did anyone else see the #Metoo or the #IkOok campaign on social media? Isn’t it devastating to see that so many women have experience(s) with sexual violence?
I’m sure you’ve heard it before – or you even said it yourself: “Don’t you just hate it when people are bragging about doing charitable things?“. I had a discussion about this very topic a week ago and it got me thinking. Why is it such a bad thing that people like to talk about the charitable things they did? Personally I am a big believer in Karma and I honestly enjoy charitable activities every now and then, but currently I would be terrified to talk about it because I would instantly be stigmatized as a #humblebragger. Are you guys seriously telling me that it is more than fine to read about corrupt politics, terrorism, abuse and even superficial gossip, than to spread a positive word about trying to making a change in this world? Not having it.
