The main reason why transparency is SO important to me.
For far too long I compared and judged my own life based on what others chose to put on social media. I still do it sometimes when I find myself in a rut! It’s so easy to do. Look at a picture, I don’t have what’s in the picture, beat myself up for not being where the other person is. The bottom line is- I have no idea what said person had to go through to get to where they are today. Even if I do know, I shouldn’t be there because I’m not them.
Something keeps coming up for me lately and I need to share about it. Some time ago, I took actions and made choices that got me into a really terrible situation with some people here on Instagram. It was - and I don’t mean to sound dramatic- but by definition, it was traumatizing. I put on my big girl pants, stuck with the people who loved me, and continued on. This experience, however, has shown me a different side to this whole social media thing and sometimes that fear of retaliation and embarrassment of my actions (not my views) rears it’s ugly head.
It will pass, as it always does, and I will throw myself into love, positivity & my own well being. Don’t compare today, babes! Just do you❤️
