The past few weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster. Like any of you reading this newsletter, I’ve already had my fair share of highs and lows in 2018, but I will have to admit being included on Forbes 30 Under 30 earlier this week was a huge high. I woke up and at first, I thought it was a joke and finally believed it was real when Kristabel Plummer tweeted me, or rather us. Like most people I retweeted, wrote my own tweet and posted on Instagram. However, it was after posting the Forbes news on Instagram that I decided that I wanted to be completely transparent in this week’s newsletter and say that days before hearing about Forbes I wanted to shut Black Ballad down for good.
Guilt is one of the main emotions driving me to share my feelings in this newsletter. I felt guilty as I posted about Forbes on the majority of my social platforms and came to the realisation that like most people, I use social media to display the highlights of my life. I don’t show the low points and very rarely do I post my day to day routine.
