Guys…why is this SO HARD? This crushed me when all I had was a pager, let alone a smartphone 😑.
Trying to live up to who I thought I SHOULD be, or wanted other people to think I was, is what fueled my addiction for so long.
I see this in all ages of people that I work with but especially in teens and young adults that don’t feel comfortable in their own skin; or are cracking under the pressure to DO and BE all the things.
The irony of it all is that even when you do it all and be it all….if it isn’t authentic and involve REAL relationships that give it meaning …IT STILL DOESN’T FEEL GOOD. If you don’t believe me, ask Britney Spears 🤷🏻♂️.
Our kids are young but we talk about this NOW. We want to lead the conversation and SHOW THEM how to do this by being unapologetically real so that they feel safe to do the same now…and forever. Gotta be real if you want to be free. If you want to see how we keep it real, see my stories. #iamlivingproof
