My 25th Birthday is coming up and i have alot of anxiety over it. It's easy to see what a person has from the outside, the facade as i call it, is always more appealing. But no one really knows what goes on in the deeper, more underlying layers.
I have realised over these last few weeks that my life(as well as many others) on instagram is somewhat a "lie". No I'm not lying to you but always remember that things aren't always as rosey as they seem. As a social media influencer I take it upon myself to promote a positive self image for those that follow me. Because No one likes a Debbie downer or wants to constantly be exposed to negativity. Yes i do share my ups and downs but I also want people to know that there is always light and positivity in every situation.
I often get remarks such as "i wish i had your life" or "it must be really cool to be You" and the worst for me is the "what problems do you have"
As if any human on this earth is created without worry or hardship. I still have alot of goals that i need to achieve , some of which have been put on pause or altered due to the life path I have chosen. And everyday I wish that life would just give me a get out of jail free card so i can get a break. but I have never met a successful person that hasn't been through their fair share of obstacles.
So dont beat yourself up. Don't compare yourself to me or anyone else. Just like you, every single person on social media has an underlying story to tell. Take the good from life and try and dwell on the positive.
Be grateful for your life, your kids, your home, your health. No matter what you think you're lacking god has a plan for us all.
