Blogtember Prompt: The real you vs. the online you. Are they the same or different?
They're the same.
I try to be as open, honest, and genuine as possible here and everywhere else I engage. Sometimes I think that this can be a bit much, especially lately as I share about all the lovely things happening to me post part, but I know that I really appreciate genuine online voices and so I'd like to do the same.
It worries me that my life might be portrayed a lot differently than it truly is though, to a reader. Because despite what anyone might believe, I do not have it all together, and quite frankly, sometimes I still cry for no reason but to cry. I am also semi afraid of the dark. So there's that. But in all reality, I have found that I tend to mostly share the happier snippets of my life on social media and so you aren't getting clued in on all of the "I don't think I can make it another minute" moments that are happening over here.
Two women that have encouraged me so much lately in how they engage with social media are Rachel and Valerie. You should follow both of them on insta. I really hope that I can engage, love, and encourage my followers the way that they are able to, because they truly do it so well.
