Social Media Anxiety 🤯.
As wonderful as it has been to see so much more #MentalHealthAwareness
being spread on social media, it doesn’t take away from the fact that social media can also be a huge trigger for many people’s low self esteem and can bring about comparison to others.
You would never think that in this picture of myself, I felt incredibly self conscious.
Recently, I have wanted to crawl out of my skin, I haven’t wanted to leave the house or speak to anyone. My anxiety has felt crippling😕.
However if I hadn’t disclaimed this, and had just posted this picture with a frivolous caption, assumptions that I am perfectly happy and confident probably would have been made.
🌷Instagram is not real life.
🌷Assumptions are the mother of all eff ups. 🌷(And finally, something you’ve probably never heard before). Everyone is dealing with their own shit, so be open minded and nice 👍🏼.
