Fake it till you make it ....

Some people assume that because I'm quite outspoken ( i.e. a gobby cow ) that I'm confident.
I get messages or comments on a daily basis asking me how I achieved my confidence, how do I do it? why do I not seem to care what others think? How am I so comfortable with myself?

And my answer is.....I'm not

I think people assume that because I blog about my life, or paste it all over youtube in a blogging / health video, I'm quite open about every life detail of mine.

I'm not

A video is only showing an edited five minutes of my daily life. Just like any other blogger or youtuber, I edit out all the shitty bits that I don't want to show. You may see that I'm all dressed up and ready to go out for the day. However you don't see the fact I didn't sleep, the fits or pain I've been dealing with or the medication I've taken before I've even switched the camera on.
(subscribe to my youtube here )

Its easy to act sure of yourself when you're all dolled up and its just you one on one with a camera. Unfortunately reality isn't like that. In reality I get upset and cry, I get the worst anxiety over new people and situations, I doubt myself more than anyone else ever could and I don't always know what I'm doing.

But hey fake it until you make it right??




I'm writing this because I want everyone to know that the lives we portray on social media aren't always a direct reflection of reality. I mean if that party was so great why aren't you living in the moment and enjoying it? instead of updating your status??

Stop comparing yourself to others..life isn't a competition. Reality can't compete with the filtered and photoshopped images we put online. Stop the hate and bitching, remember that behind the computer screen is a real person and real people have feelings.

Not everything or everyone is exactly what they seem.
