Because listen up.... I’m going to tell you the complete truth and I’m going to be completely transparent with you. As much as I love social media for connecting me to you, sometimes it just SUCKS. Because- as much as it seems like I have been accomplishing (and I have been...with extreme hard work, dedication and a little bit of crazy) I still don’t feel like I’m enough.
Not enough followers, not enough opportunity, not good enough content, always behind what’s trending just a little bit. Not thin/strong/pretty/young/funny/rich/talented/smart/the list goes on and on...enough.
Sometimes social media is a constant reminder of all that we 𝒯𝒽𝒾𝓃𝓀 that we aren’t.
It can be down right depressing and there are days that I log in, check my social media platforms and instantly feel deflated. Yesterday I told Terry that sometimes I feel invisible. Invisible to the record labels, to the content curators and branding companies who make or break an online influencer. Invisible to the “right” people who could potentially hear our music and make waves for us. So even though we have had over 60,000 views of our music video, radio play of our new single, huge opportunities to appear on WGN radio AND WGN mid-day news & I recently finished writing a book...even though all of these things have blessed me...I still don’t feel like I’m enough and it’s 💯 because of comparison on social media. Sounds crazy right? I bet some of you are even thinking “oh my gosh..get over it. You think you are invisible...you should be me”... and THAT is exactly my message. We ALL feel it yet we ALL continue to be absolutely sure that everyone else is throwing their head back laughing while they throw gold coins in the air and live in complete and utter joy (spoiler alert...they aren’t)
So today- I’m telling you and I’m gently reminding myself that
𝓨𝓸𝓾 𝓪𝓻𝓮 𝓮𝓷𝓸𝓾𝓰𝓱...WE are enough...and I am starting to believe that we all feel like we aren’t. And that makes me sad and when I’m sad I’m moved to do something about it.
More to come on this topic 💫💫
