I am not a shiny person...

On social media, we pressure ourselves to portray pretty, perfect lives👍👌 Every post is posed, faultless and filtered- so much so that our lives can become almost unrecognisable to the ones we're actually living🤔 Off screen we are far from the polished people we present ourselves as👎


🔸

I will be the first to admid that I have flaws that, try as I might, cannot be disguised🙅 I have been beat down, used and abused by so many in my life, including myself😔 I've made mistakes- some forgetful, others lifechanging. I have terrible morning breath, a weak skin care routine, a very short temper, raging insecurities and considerable issues with closure...I have also suffered with anorexia, depression, anxiety, PTSD and OCD🧠🤯


🔸

I think it is fair to say that I am NOT A SHINY PERSON🤷‍♀️ As much as I try, I do not always radiate love and warmth. Sometimes, I am rude, harsh and unfair. We've all been guilty of this at one point or another and frankly that's understandable.

We're all human🌍👩‍🔧👩‍🍳👩‍🎓👴👶👧 We're all growing each and every day and learning from each and every one of our mistakes. Sometimes what is meant to break us, makes us brave💪🔥
