Hello my lovely Gremlins. If you have seen our social media, you know we are closing. I say this with all the love in our hearts, we are relieved.
As you know if you've been following us for a long time, we've already been dealing with a lot as a family with all of the various health issues. We also dealt with threats towards our children last week as a result of an experiment I did on TikTok.
We are not closing because of the bullying, threats, and harassment, but it did play a role. This has always been a passion project, and I just don't love Advancing Aiden MORE than I love being an a mom, a partner, an engineer, a runner, a creator, and so so much more.
There is so much about me that I miss, and the more we built Advancing Aiden, the more my anxiety grew. The more I struggled with anxiety, panic attacks, and PTSD flare ups. We've made adjustments, shifted focus, and tried everything recommended. At the end of the day, there was not enough of me to go around.
This is not a failure, this isn't a sad day for our family. This is truly so relieving for us. I want to go to the park on Saturday and play with my kids. I want to run 5 miles in the morning and not feel guilty for not filming, or packing orders, and the list goes on.
I don't want to film every item I create. I don't want to battle the egos of other creators. I don't want to live in a constant state of anxiety for what the emails hold after the ongoing issues we've been having.
I don't want to open an email to screenshots of my videos telling me to focus on losing my love handles instead of bullying others. I don't want to open my TikTok to people demanding information about our toddlers, or bullying us because of their own egos.
Frankly, this is purely selfish. And honestly, hella long overdue.
While we will miss all of your DEEPLY, we have to let you know, this is such a good thing for us. There will be a lot more to come, but as of now, our last day is May 31st, 2021. We will keep you up to date as we know more.
With so much deep love and respect to each of you,
