MUST READ post from ➡️➡️➡️ @beckarobinson
LETS GET REAL // these two photos were taken seconds apart, this morning, in the same outfit, in the same spot. I'm the same girl. My success is the same. My value is the same. In the first photo, my pants are pulled up over the soft skin on my hips that never seems to go away since having a baby and I'm flexing while standing in a really flattering way. In the second, my pants are rolled down and cut into the fleshier part of my stomach and I'm standing straight and not flexing. Is this embarrassing? A little. No one wants people to see them in unflattering ways. But I want you to stop comparing yourself to girls online who's outfits are flattering and who are standing j u s t r i g h t and in perfect lighting. Someone recently asked me how I got the looser skin under my belly button to go away post-baby. And the answer is that while my body has naturally shrunk with my weight loss, things like looser skin and stretch marks are just a part of me that probably won't ever go away, I just don't highlight them! Lol! Just because you can't see them in every photo doesn't mean they aren't there. And that's true of all social media! We are all curating and taking 10 photos to get the one we like. We only post the best. And that's okay! Because this platform can be incredibly inspiring. but only IF you can remember that it's only a tiny glimpse, not the whole picture of someone's life. So don't compare your day to day with someone's highlight reel!
This is true in business too! You may see me or someone else that is where you wanna go and you might scroll their feeds and think that everything just fell in their lap. But what you don't see is the late nights, early mornings, rejections, break downs, arguments, burn out, rebuilding, and doubt. It's there though, for everyone. So if you're feeling frustrated comparing yourself or your life to strangers on the internet, please remember this post. It's all the highlight reel guys. Just keep doing your thing! You're probably farther along than you think! ✌🏻
