Lets be real. Even though I play my “highlight reel” on all social medias just like every other blogger, or person honestly, on the Internets, I have my bad days. I have been honest about my therapy journey this year, and how I’ve been working on me. Sometimes people think “working on yourself” looks pretty 24/7, but it’s not. A lot of it is ugly stuff, and a lot of it will cause fractions in your day to day as you attempt to find the balance and equilibrium to a better you and, in turn, a better life.
Although at times this journey has felt very isolating, I feel a new me brewing. I like to think that it’s perfect timing with 40 looming so close. I am learning new skills at this age, and it’s kind of refreshing – do you know the power of boundaries??? Because I apparently didn’t, and it’s been revolutionary for my anxiety and stress levels. But I digress…even with the help of a therapist (ps; I’ve been using TalkSpace), I still can always use an extra nudge in the right directions on certain days. That’s why I wanted to share some really inspirational Instagram accounts that I have found recently that have really spoken to me on a very deep level. I’ve found them to be just as healing as a therapy session at times, and I wanted to possibly help you all if you too are going “through it,” as the kids say.
I’m a firm believer that social media can be powerful and used for good. And I love that these accounts are doing just that.
Wow is this account RAW. I can’t even remember how I stumbled on it, maybe it was on my explore page (which if you haven’t really used, you should. I’ve found some stellar stuff), but when I did, I couldn’t stop saving nearly every post. It was almost like someone was reading every single thought that I have kept in my heart + soul, too afraid to unleash onto the world. If you are anxious and sensitive, this is the place for you where you can feel understood for feeling all the feels.
