The story of when this girl had enough...
I'm Lauren, mum of 4, step-mother of 2, Author of Filter Free and a real woman.
I have spent far too many years of my life not feeling enough and now I'm calling BS on that! I had stories that I stored internally for many years to the detriment of myself but to protect everybody else from my ‘ugly’ life experiences that didn’t fit into the heavily filtered world we are now living in.
After many, many, many (too many) years of various therapies I decided that enough was enough, that I was enough and that I was no longer going to protect others opinions of me whilst I had such a low opinion of me.
I got real! I shared my stories, unashamedly, unapologetically and unfiltered.
The out pouring from other women told me that I wasn’t alone in my feelings of failure or of not being enough.
I believe that in today's filtered world we don't have many fair comparisons of what real life as a woman is like and so I bring you This girl is Enough, a base for the Filter Free blog, Events, 'I Matter Too' Supper Clubs and Coffee Mornings, my book, and quick-fire round 7 Questions being answered unfiltered by some amazing women all with the aim to bring back some realness , some sisterhood and a whole empowering heap of you are not alone.
