So, I am going to start posting more of my (totally high-production level) videos here since they are spreading like wildfire on the interwebs and my Facebook page. I take requests too! Any topic you want tackled? I have fun with these, I try and laugh at myself, I don’t take myself too seriously and I do my best to tell the truth and to tell it like it is. I do my best to not be an asshole. Sometimes, I am. Naturally.

Anyway, today’s is based on request. I blended three requests together because, well, I can. This one seemed to touch a lot of my Facebook tribe so I hope it resonates with you, as well. Walking around with hate in our hearts is so damn exhausting, if nothing else. Watch the videos and leave your comments below.

These are totally off-the-cuff, impromptu, in my living room. I push all my shit out the way so you can’t see my mess. Tricky, huh?

Love, Jen

    Thank you so much. I just found you through a friend on facebook and I’m blown away.
    You are real. So real I can feel your emotions coming through and touching a part of me I didn’t realize had died. I am forever grateful for your honesty.

    Love you, Jen. I love this video. I wanted to comment “some people don’t deserve forgiveness” and be all argumentative… and it is true, some people don’t deserve forgiveness. But forgiving them isn’t even about them – they aren’t here, they don’t know… it is about you (me)!
    Self-hate is the worst and it seems to be a never-ending rollar coaster… some days are better than others.
    And the thing about self-forgiveness that I’ve really discovered is… The grudges I’ve held against myself for the longest are things I don’t even need forgiveness for, because I didn’t DO anything. Thinking I need forgiveness for this, that and the other is simply a side effect of self-hate. It’s a delusion.

    I love you too, Jen. I cried in front of my children, and hated myself for it. I cried in front of my partner and a friend, and hated myself while they hated me for it. I cried just now, because I love you for hating yourself like I hate myself. And I love you for loving yourself as well.

    Forgiveness is beautiful.
