The truth is all relationships are complicated and there isn’t a magic formula for how to compromise and how work things out. Sometimes you need to simply listen to what your heart is telling you.
i spent 15+ years deeply LOVING Paul Mitchell. During that time, i overlooked imperfections and compromised certain things because i truly believe all of us humans are trying our best, and the good outweighed the bad. We can all relate to this scenario in our past intimate relationships, right!?!
An emotional week of sleepless nights has given me the opportunity to evaluate my self love, what i have built and what i stand for. in any relationship, if you don’t feel the love is reciprocated, you are not respected, valued and important then maybe it is time for a shift.
it is with a heavy heart that i have ended my 15+ year relationship with Paul Mitchell. i am pretty sure every large organization has its own drama and the recent drama involving Angus Mitchell is something i cannot stand behind or overlook anymore.
i feel sad for Paul Mitchell’s son, Angus. He has grown up a very entitled, privileged, white male who seems to have a skewed sense of reality. While working for the company, it was common knowledge that he was not necessarily a decent human based on very blatant destructive and somewhat “sleazy” behavior. Behavior that is NOT aligned with the Paul Mitchell i fell in love with, nor aligned with my heart and vision.
He is not just the son of Paul Mitchell, he is the co-owner of the company. All of the philanthropy behind Paul Mitchell doesn’t make this behavior okay. At the end of it all, i don’t care how cool your Dad was, or what a saint your business partner (JP) is; i want and need integrity behind who i support and do business with.
As a business owner, making this shift is a logistical nightmare. i know in my heart i am making the right decision not just for myself, or my business but for humans and women all together.
Breaking up is always hard. i still need a hug and feel like crying.
