The Unstable Black Hottie: Part 1
Updated: Jan 30, 2021
Hi, my loves! First things first, I would like to thank you all for simply just reading this and for supporting me! My journey has just started, but what I've accomplished so far couldn't have been done without the support I've received from my customers that I will now refer to as my Unstable Family! I wanted to take this time to officially introduce myself & kiki with my family! For those of you who don't know me or my brand, my name is Griffin Wilson and I am the Founder of Unstable, LLC. Introductions are a little weird for me, so instead of thinking of things I could tell you I wanted to give my Unstable Family a chance to connect with me on a more personal level by allowing you guys to ask me questions! I strive to learn to know my customers and supporters by building relationships with you all! I will post this blog on our social media networks and you can either personally DM us your questions or comment under this post with your questions! You guys are now apart of my family so we've got A LOT of catching up to do, chile. Anyways, lets talk about Unstable.
I'm going to answer one question that has been asked MANY of times:
Why the name Unstable?
To be quite honest, I am someone who has had a tough life. I'm no stranger to feeling unstable. I've had a lot of dark moments but the light in my life has always been self expression through the art of fashion. Growing up I had friends and family but I never felt close enough to anyone to actually talk about how I feel. Now that has completely changed, but everyone has those life changing moments that alter their life forever. Some of us have too damn many lol. One of mine was when I reached my lowest... I tried to commit suicide in January 2019. It was something I didn't want to do but honestly that darkness just takes over and makes you do some crazy shit. When life has been hell for most of your life, you get scared of what the future may hold and you start to question if you are really cut out for this game called life. Luckily I didn't go through with it. Instead I went to therapy which was tough but it was necessary. My best way to describe myself, at the time, was uneasy or unstable. My therapist at the time Judy taught me how to write down my emotions when I am feeling the need to vent which really works. After our therapy session I bought a notebook and as soon as I opened the notebook I wrote "UNSTABLE' in big bold words. Then it hit me, this is how you feel now but this isn't how you will feel forever if you do what you need to do to change it, live with love & follow your dreams. I said to myself, "You're unstable now but bitch you're going to turn this darkness into light somehow" lol! I couldn't give up on myself anymore like I almost did. Therapy taught me you don't have to suffer. There are times where you will feel unstable. It's normal to not be okay sometimes, but you need to be happy as well. You have to find a balance. You have to lose your mind to find your peace of mind. So, that was my goal, to find my peace of mind. My peace of mind has always been fashion & my all time dream was always to become designer. So, here I am. Alive and well enough to tell my story in hopes of motivating others.
To my unstable hotties/family, mental health is real & I want you guys to take care of yourselves. I want you to know this blog is a safe place and was created for you guys! I am always here to talk or give advice. Comment below your questions you have for me, I will be creating questions for you guys as well! Ttyl!
