“Split Image” – a Must Read from ESPN

I had a different post all planned and queued to go up today, but after reading this article last night I knew I had to share this. Please take the time to read it, because this is so incredibly important and valid.
Social media sites like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. are not an accurate representation of people’s lives. We use sites like these to share the highlight reels of our lives, making them seem as picture perfect as possible and leaving the “flaws” and negative experiences on the editing room floor to be swept under the rug or kept to ourselves. No one’s life is perfect. 
Whatever you’re going through, you don’t have to go through it alone.
All my love

    I really appreciate that you gave coverage to mental illness through this article. As a person suffering from depression, this hits home, and it is true that seeing other people's "perfect" lives on social media makes me feel guilty and unworthy. But this reminded me I am not alone and that I am supported. Thank you!

  • You are so very welcome! I'm so glad to hear that this post was able to remind you that you aren't alone, because you most certainly are not! Stay strong♡ xo
