Social media posts highlight only certain stories from our life, which are often about success, love, confidence, stability, appreciation, happiness.
But what becomes invisible is our stories of coping. The ways in which we are dealing with self-doubt or anxiety, our experiences of oppression, our non-linear but very real growth in therapy, the conflicts we manage, our resilience through breakdowns. 🌸
People live multiple stories at once.
Our experiences that are seen and unseen, positive and difficult, celebrated and silent - can coexist with each other.
It’s time we keep comparisons aside and acknowledge with kindness that we all have multiple stories - not just the ones on social media. 💜
