“The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our ‘ behind the scenes’ with everyone else’s highlight reel”
This is something we can all relate to. We scroll through our Instagram feed or Facebook page and see nothing but smiles, parties, holidays, materiel gifts, romantic dinners… the list is endless. It can make us feel pretty crappy about our own lives which most of the time don’t include all that fancy shit.
Well reality check. LIFE AINT REALLY LIKE THAT. Most people will only post the “highlights of their life for you to see to make you believe their lives are better than yours. Maybe because they are insecure and need some kinda validation from followers, maybe because they have no self confidence or maybe deep down they carry a terrible sadness and pretending that everything is hunky dory makes them feel better. There is nothing wrong with that and we all do it sometimes but it’s important to know that that’s not real life. For example take me I have struggles with the way I look ( hence no selfies ) and I’m constantly comparing myself to others. I wear my heart on my sleeve and am always getting shit on by people. Friends take advantage of my generosity and I often feel alone and isolated. My breakfast may look fancy but I am a terrible cook when it comes to savoury dishes They look good enough for the bin So there you go. I just opened my heart to you and you can see that I’m not perfect and although my pictures tell a story I hope you understand that I’m a real person behind these pictures with feelings just like you. I need that same comfort, love and reassurance just like you. Why don’t you share one of your insecurities with me right here…. right now?… let’s lay it out on the table and feel empowered by them!! :
These delicious raspberry chia pudding bowls were a dessert I made a while back for me and the hubs and I have to say the bowls were licked clean pink perfection even if I do say so myself
