Social Media is funny. It's easy to overshare, but also so easy to hide behind our images. I firmly believe that one should post and share with authenticity, but also respect our own boundaries and live on Instagram free from the expectation of others. It's a peculiar line to walk, and I know for me, it can cause a dichotomous affect. I originally gravitated towards working and being active on social media for its boundless connections, conversations and all the ways in which we can practice autonomy.  Lately, I've been less inspired to do so. I find that when I'm going through a hard time, it's easiest to post a pretty image and allow the dopamine effect to come through. Likes equals gratification. I'm not blind to this, and also seek it with caution. But today I'm moved to post something beyond an emoji. In the middle of a very recent and saddening break up, and in the midst of transitions in the workplace, home and starting a new chapter; life is taking its toll and surely I feel tested. I worry about the recent health scares of close friends. I worry about making life changing decisions- some of which I'm not yet comfortable in talking about. I suppose my point is I've been down. I've shared about dealing with depression and anxiety in the past, and I don't want to be scared to share that now. Honestly, your messages have always been therapeutic and healing; and it's amazing to see how many can relate. At this moment I have immense gratitude for my friends online and offline whom have been such a great support through this time of "meh". It's ok to feel sad, and it's okay to not feel "100%". In my experience, you feel so much better when you're willing to share your experience, strength and hope with others. It helps keep me sane and stable. So now, I'll get offline and make some time to take care of myself. Life is good, and I am ok. Right now, I'll choose to bask in the knowledge of that. Much love, friends.
