Here’s the awesome post over at Caramel Lattes and Stilettos.
For those of you who read regularly here at Grief Happens, you know I’m a big believer in real, and today I got a good dose of it.
Although I don’t discuss it all that much on this site, I also love fashion and pretty things. I’d also be a straight-up liar if I ever denied that I can be vain. Can’t we all?
Even though at this stage of my life I select my wardrobe based on comfort level and whether I think it’s adequate for chasing active children, I still like to look nice.
I’ve also been known to call out my people when they post pictures of me looking ragamuffin all over social media. I mean, I don’t think I have to look perfect, but can we try to get my eyes pointing in the same direction at least? Thanks.
Social Media Authenticity: The reason I didn’t have my husband remove the unflattering pic of me on his FB page, struck a chord. I needed to read this and loved everything the author had to say.
I’m not going to break it down further here because I encourage you to head over there to check it out, but I’ll leave you with this quote from the piece:
“Consistently rejecting who I am in exchange for some filtered version of myself doesn’t make me happy. I want people to see my real life, the good, bad, and ugly of it all because human perfection is not beautiful, it’s a lie.”
Check out Dawn’s piece and I’d love to hear your thoughts on how you handle bad pics of yourself on social media.
