💥 Instagram REAL AND UNEDITED 💥It’s really easy to go on social media and compare yourself to other people - their looks, the holidays they’re on, the houses they live in. As much as everyone says it it’s so easy to forget after endless scrolling that instagram is a curated gallery of photographs a person creates that is often devoid of many of the darker realities of life. In this photo I’m wearing no makeup, nothing is edited, there’s no filters, I just found out I’m vitamin D, b12 and iron deficient, I have a cut on my lip, I worked my way through a panic attack last week and my stomach disease I’ve been dealing with for a long time. But I feel powerful, beautiful and loved and want to celebrate that too. It’s not only the aesthetically beautiful moments that should be captured but the times that are hard but make you who you are.
Instagram is one of my favourite platforms. Despite the bad wrap it gets we have the power to create the content we want to see. I love wearing makeup and trying new looks because it feels creative and I find it fun, but I also like sharing my life unedited and raw with you because I want to connect on more than just curated imagery. Again I want to highlight, we have the power to create the content we want to see. It feels really empowering to celebrate the less than perfect parts of yourself and recognise the less than perfect parts of others, the parts that make us fall in love. Thank you for reading if you got this far x
