This is a bit of a raw post for me, but here goes nothing. Or everything, I guess. (Words are hard)
Social media is fake, it’s all about smoke and mirrors.
The majority of my time, I am a potato in bed with my laptop (like in the picture). I am working away for countless hours and couldn’t care less that my hair is a frizzy mess, I probably look like a disaster, with my stupid bald spot in my eyebrow showing (lol but actually). I’m not out doing exciting stuff, although it may look like that online sometimes.
I have a horrible tendency to compare myself to other people on social media, all the time. I often compare my worst to people’s bests. Their curated lives. Why doesn’t my life look like that? Why don’t I have what they have? Don’t get me wrong, I love my current situation, but these are just some habits and mindsets that I fall into.
Admittedly, I don’t think I have the healthiest relationship with social media. It’s my job(s), so I spend the majority of the day on social media. I posted a long ramble on my blog about how I use smoke and mirrors on my instagram account, especially because this account is for business. If you want to read it, you can click the link in my bio. It’s pretty raw and basically un-edited, but it’s very appropriate for my life and what myself and other people in my life are facing.
Do you feel pressure to “curate” your life, or do you have an unhealthy relationship at all with social media? If you do, you’re not alone. I’m here to talk about it if you need it.
