Thank you to everyone who reached out, today, after looking at my story. ❤️✌️ ...it’s been wonderful to see the amount of positive responses coming in and it’s been an honor to learn a bit more about all your own personal struggles. We are all humans and life isn’t always fluffy clouds and butterflies.
Let’s be honest, sharing painful feelings publicly is always a little nerve racking and you’re always worried to sound like a cry baby or an emotional basket case for displaying a piece of your own vulnerability. We hide behind a painful smile and a perfect selfie. We only show the highlights of our lives, making it look like if every day was glamorous. Life isn’t always glamorous... it has its pains & struggles and no one is immune to them.
Today was an interesting social experiment which only bring up more questions:
- How real can you really be on social media? - Why, as a society, do we feel more comfortable hiding this side of us to others?
