Why I Don’t Post On YouTube 🙃 Online Dating Is Traumatic + I Want More In 2022 💎 GemTime Life Update

Hey friends, welcome to today’s Gem Time video. I think it is time for me to explain why I haven’t been consistent with YouTube over the last 3 months. My real ones know I was on a roll, posting every single week from March 2021. YouTube was something I was having a lot of fun with and took very serious. However, end of October 2021 I had a small road accident, and shared a little about my recovery in my 5am morning routine. This accident set me about 3 weeks behind and in November I only posted 2 videos. 

I wish I could say me feeling unwell because to my back pain was the only reason I didn’t post. 

But the truth is, I was also distracted by something else. 

I was going through emotional trauma.

I downloaded a dating app. 

I was someone who didn’t date and I always knew dating apps didn’t seem right for me. Yet, I somehow managed to still hop on the train wreck that is dating online. 

I’m not even exaggerating, November and December were the hardest months of the year for me; it was emotional exhausting and overwhelming. 

The only reason why y’all had videos during those months was because the skincare was already a little pre planned and the rest were just vlogs of me going out.

I need to confess and say sorry for not being consistent. I will go into my dating app stories in another video; I’m thinking to have a chat with my sister over a skincare routine. 

Attempting to date takes time, and uses up mental and emotional energy. And I didn’t expect it would have me so distracted. It’s been just a little under 3 months and I think I am getting my sanity back a little and it’s something I have pushed to the background. I personally don’t think it works for me. I am 90% done with dating online. The only reason why I haven’t deleted my account is because I know I would be tempted to get it back. So I am just letting it be. 

However, there were some good things that came out of this experience. I was able to reflect more on my goals and who I want to become.

It made me reach for my poetry book. I started working on it again. The poems are coming back. This is something that I felt has been missing from my channel, I want to talk about my feelings. My emotions are cringe and embarrassing, but I am being the truest version of myself when I am working on my writing. And I have always wanted to expand and become a better writer. So I need to let these poems out and write new ones. Wanting to write more and have a discussion was how I came up with the book-ish series on my channel. That is a series that will be continuing and I am doing my best to make it more engaging as possible.

Another thing I have been reflecting about is how much I miss travelling and I need to figure that out. Jemima on a solo trip, she is brave and adventurous; and I need that back. 2022 is about travel, literally my gaols for this year is just a list of places I want to visit.

Job wise, I realised it was time for a change too. I have been doing a job that was just meant to be for an interim for 3 and a half years now. And what happened is I got comfortable. I knew at this job I had hit the ceiling and there is no room for growth. However, it is something I am good at and even though I have not been feeling fulfilled I stayed so long because it is still a meaningful role and I know I am making a difference to others. I want to help people, but I also want to progress. And so I found a new job, but then it was not a right fit for me; and I could still feel I wanted more and I couldn’t get that at this company. I left after a week, lol. I am still looking for the right opportunity job wise; it was a good thing I hadn’t left my old job yet lol. 

Something that is going to stay the same is my family and friends, I have some great supportive people around me and I am so blessed. I spend a lot of time with my girls and I love it. The vlogs at this point is Diana & Jemima aka Daily DJ. Even though Rania does not want to invite me to her house and keeps mad secrets from me, I still fucks with her. We need to visit Keisha, so a weekend girls trip outside London is needed. I’ll try to get more of Francheca in the vlogs, cause I see her but we just chill. And then there are girls like Adeaze and Lydia who I don’t see enough, but I am thinking about. I also want to spend more time with my cousins this years; life is changing for everyone. Just thinking and Bernice’s wedding is still so amazing. 

A few of my ages mates are getting married this year as well, shout out to you. I think I will be going to a wedding in Italy? I’ll try not to cry too much about the fact people are getting married and I’m single.

But seriously, I am so thankful to have a loyal circle.
