It seems that people’s Facebook profiles don’t exactly reflect the truth about their life, it’s only the best part. Their profile pic is the best picture ever taken of themselves, even it was 10 years ago and 20 pounds lighter.
Saw where someone called Facebook, “your personal PR machine where you sparkle brighter”
What’s wrong with just being real?
I overheard 2 women talking at the park yesterday about how one had 2 separate Facebook accounts. One for her current friends and family where she puts real pictures, and another that's for high school classmates and old boyfriends where she only puts the best pictures of herself, when she was thinner.
Somebody give me one GOOD reason to do that? Join the discussion on my totally honest Facebook page.
To “practice what I preach” today, I posted a pic I snapped this morning without makeup right after waking up. I realized I have all these professional photos psted where someone else did my hair and makeup. It’s not the real me. That’s the only day I have ever looked that good.
The real me has dark circles under my eyes from lack of sleep, and freckles from too much time in the sun.
I want to be real. Strong women are comfortable in their own skin. I may not always feel strong and comfortable in my own skin, but I certainly can try.
Here’s why I think it’s important: When you’re real and vulnerable about your own imperfections, that’s when others feel comfortable coming to you for help. That’s your opportunity to tell them where you get your strength from.
I don’t know about you, but I get mine for believing and relying on Jesus Christ.
