Description

This episode Grace talks to influencer and podcaster Oenone Forbat about struggles with body image while growing up, therapy, and the trouble with Instagram vs mental health. I am a self-professed alcoholic bookworm who has spent a substantial period of her life falling into very similar traps as Grace Campbell.

I’ve loved Grace Campbell since I discovered her on the podcast she does with her Dad and was lucky enough to catch her doing her Edinburgh show in London not long before covid hit. Like Grace, and many other women, I had a complicated relationship with my body growing up and I fell foul to many social pressures.Such an honest and loving and relatable book that doesn't try to be sophisticated and in the process becomes sophisticated in its unpretentiousness and its raw tone. But most of all, I loved the brutal honesty with which she took mental health conversations head on, and how she (not without humor) normalized emotions we often blame ourselves for feeling, especially as women.

I found the book interesting when she had written about him working in politics and the whole Tony Blair side of things, the protesting outside their home which was aimed at Alastair (sometimes you don’t realise what comes with being known or in the public eye if you will). I found Grace's book entirely relatable in many places, as a child born in the mid-1990s I'm a year younger than Grace and have grown up at the same time as Grace which I think drives this connection. Although I skipped the politics (I don't know anything about UK politicians and I don't care either) the rest of the book was really nice to read.

She is a chaotic force of nature and a committed over-sharer who is on a constant, often hilarious, mission to undermine the patriarchy. Alright, I gotta admit I wasn't sure I would like the book when I started it; the classic feeling of. This week, Grace and Made in Chelsea star Jamie Laing ditch the voice notes and have a long talk about their experiences with anxiety, mental health and reality TV, ways to find happiness, and tricks to deal with constipation.

What I loved about this book is that it 100% Grace Campbell in all of her glory, she refuses to be pigeon holed into a box of how women are expected to behave and what they are supposed to talk about.

I was straight up chuckling and laugh(snort)ing to myself at some of her incredible punch lines and one liners in a way that I wished I had come up with them (and I am obviously no comedian). At only 27, Grace has got a lot to learn about being an adult, but she's already got a lot to share about being a disgrace, and how she came to be utterly, disgustingly, disgracefully proud of it. I now see shame as this dirty little secret, which is bequeathed from one female generation to another. From the first encounter, when Grace pleasures herself, to the wild drug and drink fuelled nights of one night stands, as well as her journey learning to love herself, vagina included.

It perfectly captured the mess that is growing up and trying to find yourself and fit in, a lot of rejection and jealously, and endless list of terrible decisions and making the same mistakes repeatedly. Depending on the highs and lows of your own early 20s, episodes of chasing blokes who really, really don’t want to shag you might resonate; as might getting kicked out of Rowan’s in Finsbury Park. Sometimes I got a feeling of "ok grace, I get it, chill" but I applaud her for talking so openly about stuff like masturbation and rejection.
