My Online Presence

Note to all my online followers:

It’s so easy to judge someone based off their online presence. If you have social media and use it quite often many fall in the trap of being portrayed as something you aren’t in real life. Please don’t assume a person’s life based on what is being posted online. It may be that I like a particular post or would like to share my opinion on something. Regardless of what the case may be, don’t get caught up in what people post.

I am a private person as much as I do have a social media presence. I just like to post, but please don’t get too caught up in an idea of me or anyone who posts frequently. Yes I am a bubbly person in real life, but I also don’t post my sad or angry days online. If you were to analyze my posts on social media to get some sort of idea of who I am, you might think I’m insane (one minute posting a quote on happy relationships and the next minute I have a really deep quote about self-love). If I like something, I post it. If I want to share in hopes it helps someone, I’ll post it. I don’t have to be experiencing my own problems as I post whatever it is I’m posting.

For the most part, I only share happy moments of my life if I do feel like sharing online. You won’t see anything that is too personal because that’s not what I choose to post. The difference with social media is that you can pick and choose what to post and in real life that really isn’t the case, things just happen (good and bad). You only see half truths so it’s best you go offline and get to know the real person, the old school way.

Peace, love, and happiness always!

 

 

 

 

 

The Comeback

“Make the comeback stronger than your setback”

Lately, I’ve been talking to a few people with similar situations and I thought I’d post about it. It’s nearing the end of 2017 and I just want to impart some of my thoughts on how to handle failure, reoccuring mistakes, and feeling sorry for yourself and my approach to it.

Failure

I am the biggest critic of myself, I have self-doubts, and sometimes I let some of these negative opinions bother me. I also have my fair share on things that let me down. Things I thought would be my saving grace, whether it be financial success upon graduation, being in a stable career, and so on. If there’s one thing I learned from the amount of time I’ve had being 27 is that failure is what will lead you to your true calling and what you are meant for. If it didn’t work out better luck next time. Also, you don’t have to be 13, 27, or 52 to realize this. You can start to realize that failures are just a minor set back to what you are really destined to do right now as I tell you this.

Reoccuring mistakes

If you don’t see a problem, it won’t be solved. If you can’t admit to your own mistakes, you are also partly the problem and the solution (if you choose). I think sometimes we as people need to see that we are all imperfect and we all have a choice. We are imperfect in the way that we all make mistakes. I think sometimes the problem is we tend to fight or develop self-loathe because we want acceptance and love (which is all necessary). Despite all the things you hate about yourself there are many qualities you are and should aim to be. Know you are capable beyond belief to choose and that you deserve self-love and happiness.

Sometimes we face conflicts with ourselves by comparing or wanting to be something we aren’t to fit in. I think thats when social media is bad. That’s when you need to reevaluate your friendships and your life. Here’s something you can try, if you’re a social media junky like me. Remember back in the day when we didn’t have Instagram or Facebook?

Rip the band-aid and stop feeling sorry for yourself, you are braver than you think

This is a big issue. If you linger on the problem, you are just going around like a goldfish in a fishbowl. We all have struggles to deal with, but it’s the way we deal with these struggles that are most important. This is where I think experiencing new surroundings, becoming friends with people who have a different culture than you or younger/older than you, and meeting people from all walks of life is much needed and so important.  Whatever it is you are facing, you need to know that you are worth it, you deserve the best life has to offer, and you are not alone. Everything you feel is only human. Let all failures and mistakes make you stronger.
