Just A Thought: Your Own Kind Of Girl, By Clare Bowditch

Your Own Kind of Girl is an affirmation of being. A toast to the rollercoaster of life. It is a love letter to the girls and women who struggle with every meal and for whom what they see in the mirror will never be good enough. A reminder that life is what happens when you’re not paying attention.

I like to think that I know my mates pretty well. I’m not a surface buddy, I’m the person who asks pointed and uncomfortable questions. The person who gets you talking – even when you’d rather not. The one who holds a problem up to the light, rotating it slowly and examining it from every possible angle.… I’m the friend who, occasionally, you’d rather just went away.

And I thought I knew Clare Bowditch pretty darn well. Like a bunch of people in this room, I sobbed to her songs as a teenager. Ruminating over break-ups and believing that she alone understood just how I felt, and how deeply my heart was hurting. Alternating between Clare and Missy, I would find better ways to channel my rage and bruised ego than endlessly calling the object of my affection.
