I was thumbing through my Instagram feed for a few minutes this morning and was struck once again by how much of what we post (myself included!) is kind of fake. I’m not saying the moments or the people are fake…what I’m saying is it’s fake to only post the great, pretty, perfectly posed side of our life.
Let me be clear, I’m not a proponent of putting all our struggles, frustrations and ugly side out on social media either. Life is hard enough without the downers of constantly seeing how hard all of our lives are:-)
What I am proposing is that you remember that no one has it easy…no one is always perfectly posed…no one looks pretty and done up all the time. Life is a mix of ups and downs. Sometime’s life is great and sometimes it’s a struggle! We all live this truth every day. Every person in every pretty picture you see is with you in the strengths and struggles of life!
So please remember today, that no one has it all figured out and that everyone has joy and pain. You don’t have to fake it until something breaks. Just lean in with authenticity and being real because you are not alone and we are in this together!
