Happy Friday guys 🤗 some food for thought... ☝🏼
I just wanted to briefly talk about this quote that I feel so many women can relate to. I’m still yet to really get my blog going (apologies for this but my head has been elsewhere and tiredness has been battering the shit out of me!) I will get round to regular writing so hold that thought...I have a lot to say for myself, I just need time to be able to string sentences together that actually make sense 😂
Back to this quote ✍🏼
If you’ve ever been in a position of feeling the heavy weight of the world on your shoulders, due to the pressures of how you’re viewed by the world, then you’ll undoubtedly understand every word. I know we all do it. We put up the perfect pictures, perceiving the perfect lives, with the perfect angles, the perfect ‘on trend’ outfits, and the perfect homes. We can lose ourselves in this bubble of perfect and then set our own bar of ‘perfectness’ which we feel we need to be achieving so the world applauses us for the snippets of perfect that we choose to share.
I relate to this, this has been me on and off through the years, and this level of perfect ramped up a gear when I fell in a dark hole of letting peoples gossip fuelled perception of me get the better of me. Mentally I crumbled under the pressure of knowing I wasn’t perfect, my life wasn’t perfect, but I was far from the picture painted of me by people who didn’t know me.
Photo shop and the ability to change an image into your own personal perfection - I used this for a couple of months in the form of an app, changing the shape of my face, shrinking my nose and enhancing my lips. Not only did I end up making myself look like I’d just crash landed here from Mars 👽 it was also obvious to everyone who knew me that I’d tampered with a picture and didn’t look like that, few will actually ask you why you feel the need to change features of yourself, but as I soon realised, your face is your face and a filter or an app to change or enhance it isn’t what people will see in reality so what really is the point?
My answer, there is no point. Let’s just be who we are, and let’s show the world ourselves in our purest form ♥️ #rawtalk #real
