The reason why we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel

Me, not looking sad on the outside, but sometimes we are on the inside.

This is so true and something I struggle with a lot. New Years is one of the hardest times  for me mentally as I hate all the pressure of feeling you have to have big goals and huge dreams when in reality a big goal may just be getting out of bed and a huge dream may just be making it to the end of the week without losing it and do you know what, that is ok. New year is also a reminder of another year gone where my vision is declining, and it scares me.

Someone asked me the other day how I stay so positive whilst losing my eyesight and the thing is, I’m not always positive. I cried this morning because I felt useless and upset that it’s me going blind, yet I got dressed,  did my makeup, put a smile on and posted my Instagram stories and nowhere in those stories of mine would anybody realise how down I have been because we don’t post pictures of ourselves crying. It’s easy to post a picture of a smile, but it’s harder to post the true reality of sadness and my picture just proves that. Don’t live your life by comparing it to others online, it is a joy stealer and I will try not to do the same. Maybe that should be my New Years resolution ♥️.
