Good afternoon guys! 🤗 I hope everybody is enjoying their weekend! Just stopping in to share something personal about myself that I think can help a lot of you! *LONG CAPTION AHEAD* lol. So surprisingly I’ve actually been getting A BUNCH of DMs from girls asking how I’ve gained & maintained so much confidence in myself. In this day & age where social media LOOOOVES to compare women to each other, confidence is a must! Don’t get me wrong, it took a while for me to get here. I remember when I was a 20 y/o college kid (around the time when social media really started taking off crazy), & I used to compare myself to these girls on the ‘popular’ page (back before IG changed it to ‘explore’ page). I would put so much stress on trying to “be perfect”, that I slowly started losing myself. I ended up going on a social media cleanse my junior year & deleted all social media for an entire year! 😳 I still can’t believe I did it to this day lol, but it was so necessary! I started finding myself in all aspects. I realized what motivated me, what I wanted out of life, & was able to prioritize the important things like God, family, school, etc. Taking the initiative to separate myself from social media, & realize that REAL LIFE is far more important, has changed me so much for the better! I gained so much confidence and self-love that I was lacking before, because instead of focusing on what everybody else was doing, I started pouring into myself and what made me happy. Now, whenever I start to doubt myself (because we all do at times), I just put my phone away and do things that make me feel good about myself! One of my favorites is the gym if you can’t tell ☺️ So today, I challenge all of you ladies (& any guys reading this as well) to start separating real life from this fantasy life we call Instagram. Find what motivates you, and pour your heart and soul into it! I promise you’re going to feel 100x better in the end! I hope I come off as a bit more relatable to you guys since many of you don’t know me personally! DM me or comment below your thoughts ❤️ I wanna do this more with u guys.
