I had a full blown melt down today - tears and all... and initially the thought of sharing this scared the sh*t outta me! “What will people think, can I handle the judgements, what will so-and-so say”... But then I thought about what would help me right now and if I were to see this from someone else, I’d definitely feel comforted in some way and at least not so craaaaazy haha! 🤪 I also believe there is power in vulnerability and strength is showing weakness so here it is! 💪🏼 And yep, I’ve been in my PJ’s with my matted “mum bun” all day and it felt gooood! 🤣🙈
It’s almost impossible to open Instagram without seeing contrived perfection or perceptions of perfection in your feed and in my opinion a lot of it is BS! Sometimes it can inspire us sure, but I believe a lot of the time it’s not real and just makes us feel sh*tty and inadequate. The last thing I’d ever wanna do is make any of you feel like that with any of my posts.
Sure, I might sometimes “appear” like I live a perfect life, have it altogether and totally killing life in all areas and I may even be someone’s idea of “perfection”, but I can assure you, I’m far from it in all ways.
I don’t always have it altogether, I have insecurities, I have times when I have melt downs, doubt myself, feel unmotivated, insecure, feel like I’m incapable as a mother, business owner, partner.. etc!
Maybe some of you feel similar at times and feel like you’re the only one who feels like this, but I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone... there’s at least one other person out there that feels this way (and that’s me haha 😝) - in all seriousness though, you are not abnormal and you are definitely not on your own.
If you’re having a crap day or week know that we ALL have crappy times and it will pass and you’ll get through it. Also, please don’t ever feel ashamed to seek help. I’m usually someone who bottles up all my sh*t and I try to work it out on my own but I’ve finally reached out for support and that first step is the hardest but oh so good! 🙌🏼 It’s a step in the right direction. ☺️
You ARE strong, capable, worthy and loveable. - You better believe it beautiful people!! ☺️ Sending LOTS of love to you all. 😘
