I was planning on just posting the first picture with some sassy bikini related caption, but that would have been a lie. Honestly? I'm not okay at the moment.
Last week one of my fur babies died, completely out of the blue and far too young. My dogs are my best friends in the whole world and I love them beyond all reason, so I'm devastated and heartbroken. I've spent a week crying my eyes out, talking to her like she's still here, and watching Glee.
And do you know why I'm telling you this? Because every time I logged onto social media and saw everyone else being so overwhelmingly positive, going to amazing places and doing fantastic things, I felt even worse. I felt like my sadness made me a failure. I felt like I was letting everyone down. I felt like I wasn't allowed to feel how I feel.
And I don't want any of you who are also struggling at the moment to look at my page and feel the same way. Ever. I want you to know that it's okay to not be okay. It's okay to be emotionally vulnerable. It's okay to talk about mental health. You don't always have to show the highlight reel online when sometimes, the highlight reel is a lie. So here's my truth: I am not okay right now. And there's nothing shameful about that.
Thank you all for being here, I hope you can be patient with me while my heart heals. 💜💙💚🌈🌞
