By nature I am a very private person. And as humans, especially this day in age, I feel like people are programmed to keep secrets and hide things about themselves to “protect” themselves. But the truth is hiding only keeps you in bondage. Everything done in the darkness will come to light (Luke 12:3), and the longer you stay in the darkness the more it eats at your soul. So I’ve decided to start this blog to share some things that I’ve been going through, in the hopes that I can help others and also keep myself accountable as I make changes in my life.
I'm Lauren, aka Just Du Pree, and I want to thank you for reading. This is a space where I share my very personal journey healing from eczema and topical steroid withdrawal (among other things), life lessons I've learned along the way, and occasionally the thoughts of an awkward Black girl (no Issa Rae). I'm a performer and filmmaker, so if you feel so inclined, pop over here to see what goes on in my mind on the regular. If you like what you see, you can stay up to date with my work here. Much love, friends!
