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 ♥️.
