Being down-to-earth

You are just honest, and it gets it into trouble and you don’t always form great relationships to begin with. I don’t know why I wasn’t scared off

The first episode of the podcast is now available in as many places as I could think of. But do let me know if you would like it somewhere else so you can listen with ease.

This first episode focuses on the name of the podcast and what it means to be down-to-earth. Is everyone down-to-earth really? I don’t know. All I know is that it has taken me years to come to terms with the fact I cannot change the way I approach people and topics. I am an open book. Ask me anything- no seriously ask me bloody anything and I bet I won’t stumble or question why you have even asked me. I live for someone to talk to me in an open, honest way.

Relationships over the years have been rocky (to say the least) friends and family have come and gone. I can’t level with people like I ever imagine I will. I don’t form friendships like I hope I will. I also find it tricky to believe that anyone would then actually like me after having such turbulent times over the years.

The self-belief disappears a lot and I imagine that I will be growing old lonely with no children- will they leave me too and think I am just an arsehole.

I am sure I have mellowed- but I know this is just the way I am. I would be mortified if someone considered me as rude, I don’t ever want to come across as this. I just like to be honest and open- I certainly read the room.

In fact, I can tell you within seconds how someone is feeling or I will probably be able to give you a detailed story about their history and most of it will be correct. I am incredibly perceptive as a result of being so open.

So for today’s episode I chatted to my husband, ali, about how we met, why he hasn’t ran for the hills in 8 years and why he hasn’t once questioned why he is married to me. It baffles me a lot.

So I hope you love the episode.
