Since everyone is putting their opinion out there with the whole social media thing I wanted to add my contribution. I wasn't going to at first but I had something to say so here it is. I'm writing this in a very emotional state so if none of this makes sense I'm sorry in advance.
My take on social media issue... So I don't have a perfect life and I don't know if I portray that on here or any my social media site but it's far from perfect. I'm actually going through something really personal right now and I was thinking if I should mention it here or anywhere else as I hate to be negative online because I feel these are my happy places.
I look at people's life online sometimes and wonder why I can't be like them. The top bloggers traveling and getting sent amazing products that I can't afford because I make very little from my blog some months and sometimes I do pretty good. They have the perfect body and I'm over here eating cookies at night before bed. I get these horrible thoughts in my head and just critique myself why I can't be like everyone else. It has always been a problem of mine and though I can fix it a little I'm sure it will always be there creeping in the back of my head.
So yes. My life is not perfect and I'll show you below but I choose to share my happy times more than I do the sad ones. I do edit my pictures for blog posts to make them brighter and look good but that's it. We have editing software at our fingertips now and I would be lying if I would say I don't use a filter or two to make them as bright as my personality. We all choose what we post so I don't think we should be judged for that.
I don't know why I wrote this but I needed to say something to calm my mind.
My life lately... A few nights ago I shared my grandmother was in the hospital. I usually never share things like that but after that big everything is not real online I decide to throw in a tweet or two about how sad I was that what was going on in that moment. Writing has always been an outlet for me and though I'm not really good at expressing myself verbally I sure can do it while writing if you couldn't tell by this post already.
Above that I'm in so much pain. That I can't hardly stand up or walk properly right now and doing simple things I used to do before and not being able to do them right now is frustrating me. I want to get up and film a video because I was having fun doing them and then this happens. I want to take more blog pictures since I'm running out but I can't even stand up to do them or bend over like I usually do to take them. So that leads me to getting sad about my blog and not putting so much effort in it.
Now I'm in this depressive state and feel so sad about everything and anything. I cry myself to sleep and hope that when I wake up I'll feel better and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Of course I wouldn't want to share that on social media (well I just did now here on my blog but I treat it like my diary so a post here and there of what my life is like wont hurt.) I want to look back on this one day and if I'm so happy and content with my life I knew I had a week like this and didn't think I would get through but I do. This is probably the last I'll mention something like this because like my blog name suggests I want you to come to my space to feel like a fairytale when you visit.
I'm trying my best to get some posts up because I know it will make me feel a tad bit better. So sorry for the slow updates lately and being absent on social media. A good break is needed right now for me and I need to concentrate on my hip and the rest of the things I am getting thrown at the moment.
That was a little semi depressing life update but hope you are okay with my spiel of words. I promise a more cheerful post will be up tomorrow. In the meantime I hope I didn't scare you away. I just wanted to put my take to it and though probably others have said the same thing I put mine out there and isn't that we are all aiming for is to embrace our uniqueness. I wish it was as easy doing that then typing that word out. Hope you are having a better week than I am!
