Scrolling through Instagram, scrolling past the usual coffee photos or photos of that friend you haven’t seen since 10th grade eating a fancy dessert, or maybe a photo of a college friend getting engaged.
Facebook isn’t that far off, what with all the posts about people getting promotions or engaged or even expecting a baby.
Sometimes you might think everyone seems to have a perfect life.
So, what’s the truth?
The truth is: nobody has a perfect life. Nobody.
You can post as many photos that have been perfectly edited, you can post the most positive statuses and tweets.
It still won’t change the fact that none of us are perfect.
We are all imperfect and flawed.
We all have something we’re dealing with.
There are moments where we all just feel like wearing sweatpants and a t-shirt and drinking hot tea. Or maybe we just want to unwind with a bath and a good book.
Heck, I get that way.
I still get zits and use toothpaste on them.
Most days I don’t wear matching socks.
I’m probably the most organized disirganized person-ever(I have a system to my disprganization).
When I watch tv I have to have something to drink or nibble on.
I strongly hate mushrooms.
If I could, I would wear flip flops all year.
It’s okay to be real and not try to act like everything is perfect.
We don’t live in a fairytale guys.
It’s okay to put a photo of yourself up that isn’t staged.
It’s okay to admit you’ve just had a crappy day.
It’s okay to admit you don’t understand something.
It’s okay to ask for help.
It’s okay to be different.
It’s okay to be authentic.
It’s okay to be you.
It’s okay if your path in life looks a little different than someone else’s. God is writing your story, trust Him and His plans for your life.
In a world where too many people try to be someone they aren’t, be yourself.
