Life isn’t perfect, but social media will tell us otherwise. Fame, fortune, the picture of perfection, this is something we see on our news-feeds daily…
I think deep down we know that’s not real life, but something inside of us wants that regardless if it is attainable or not.
We feel guilty for not being “on” 24/7, for not looking our best, for having a bad day, for feeling less than.
But I have a secret for you…YOU’RE HUMAN. It’s OK to have a bad day, It’s OK to not be happy and on 24/7, It’s OK to be late once in a while, to be grumpy for no reason at all, to feel down on yourself, to be sad or upset…IT IS OK TO NOT BE OK SOMETIMES.
Let yourself feel, let yourself process what you are going through…and THEN move on.
Don’t let social media and the painted world of perfection fool you into thinking life is all rainbows and butterflies, because well, it’s not. There’s going to be shitty days, like really shitty days, and then there are going to be amazing days, days that make you so thankful for those not so good days, so you can truly appreciate the ones that make you feel on top of the world. Hang on to those good days, and learn from the shitty ones, both are so incredibly necessary for growth.
Sometimes you have a bad moment, a bad day, hell a bad few days…but that does not mean it is a bad life, that does not mean you need to stay there forever. Surround yourself with love, friendship and faith, believe that your bad days don’t define YOU, look within, take a deep breath and realize the beautiful, unique and perfectly imperfect individual that you are. There is no one like you and there will never be anyone like you, and that to me, is beautiful.
You’re going to be ok, I promise.
