There’s effort that goes into genuinely sharing about how things are going in your life. There’s effort that goes into trying to make your life look perfect on social media. I want to practice the former of the two.
This is hard to consistently do, of course. But for all of my blog posts, Facebook Posts and Tweets, the person who is going to look back at them the most in a few years is me. I want to see how I was actually feeling and what I was truly experiencing. Not what I wanted to look like I was feeling, or what I wanted to pretend like I experienced.
I also want to connect with people who are working on the same challenges that I am. It can be hard to tell with many people when we’re focusing on putting out the best image of ourselves that we can. So many times I’ve seen someone who often talks on social media about certain mindsets or goals they’re working on, only to meet them in real life and discover in reality they’re doing very different things. Nothing more to write about when it comes to those people, except from them I learned that I don’t want to be like that. Or if I am like that, I’m working on identifying it and stopping.
I’d rather share what’s truly going on in my life than post the highlight reel that I want others to see.
