Is it weird that I don’t wear makeup every day?
I used to not post anything that didn’t “reflect my best” - this is what I was taught, conditioned to believe and I gotta say I think it held me back in some ways.
Why? Because it gave the impression to those around me that I was always trying to be perfect, when in reality, if you spend any time with me you know that I don’t wear make up every day.
I love the natural look. Now, don’t get me wrong... there are some days I truly NEED makeup 😝 but that’s ok! I’m good with that.
My point is, it’s ok to be imperfect because we ALL are. We cannot truly help people become who God created them to be if we continue to hide behind “who we think everyone wants us to be”.
It’s B.S.! Plain and simple. I DO NOT agree that you have to always be perfect, show only your best on social media.
We all CRAVE genuine, real and honestly, we love a hot mess, right? Why do you think reality TV is such a hit?
While I DO believe that social media is NOT your therapy session (Meaning, it’s not cute to complain, bitch and moan constantly) I DO believe that you should be who you are - don’t be afraid to show your true colors.
Don’t be ashamed of the amazing human that God created you to be. Not everyone is “supposed to look, feel or act in one specific way”
If you’ve ever felt like you just didn’t measure up and you’re tired of comparing yourself to the perfect person next door... drop an emoji below.
You were fearfully and wonderfully made.
