Honestly, I have such a bad habit. I refuse to open up to anyone with my words. But then I type it all down and post it on my blog where hundreds of people see it. It is a bad habit but usually I turn it around and we all end up feeling inspired. So lets try.
Honestly, this week so far has been the kind of week where I am looking at myself after sobbing for three hours and I say "Am I okay?". I mean considering I just finished sobbing for three hours, I rarely eat, I don't leave the house besides work, no. I am not okay. But instead of simply admitting it to someone, I continue scrolling through social media attempting to convince over 1,000 people that I am doing perfectly fine.
I think that is the main problem with social media, I don't compare myself but I try to convince everyone that I am a happy girl. I mean, obviously I am happy. But who is happy everyday, all the time? I don't know why I waste my energy doing that. It is actually one of the worst habits I have. So that is why I am here, pouring out my flaws.
So here is a run down, I am a very emotional girl. I worry a lot. I have pimples. I stress over nothing. I cry a lot. Sometimes, when you scroll through my feed you probably don't suspect any of that And you probably suspect that with a lot of accounts. So here is my reminder, to not let social media fool you. As fun and amazing social media truly is, it can also be really evil. So please, do not compare yourself, or let yourself become sad over it. If you have a bad habit of it I highly recommend taking a social media break. I know social media breaks can be hard, but start small. Take 20 minute breaks, turn the 20 minutes into an hour, and continue to grow with it.
This life can be hard, and overwhelming. There are so many different things happening everyday and sometimes it can be too much. But don't worry, you are destined to handle anything that is thrown at you. Even if it seems hopeless or hard, you will get there. I had an awful week with lots of crying, but it is the end of the week and I am ready to try again. It is okay to not be okay, take a break, get some help if you need it, you do not need to be as strong as you think. You are perfectly un-perfect. As cheesy as that sounds, its true.
So, start this week with a smile on your face, and if it doesn't work, that is okay because it is 101% normal and okay. But please do not fake it. It is okay to not be okay. How will you start this week? Wether it is sad or happy, I know you can do anything that is thrown at you.
Thanks for reading guys.
I love you all a lot.
