28 Feb All Roses? Fuck no!
All Roses?? No fucking way!!! Don’t get caught up in the social media hype! We jump online see other people “living the life” and get sad, depressed and down because of **what we perceive** how good others have got it. Yet, ALWAYS REMEMBER these people still have bills to pay like you, most stress hard about money, like you, most run households on their own, like you – we are supposed to live in tribes and communities, not separate houses and running the treadmill, doing it all on our own – no wonder our society is fucked up!!
You wonder why you never hear about the hard stuff on social media?! Cause people think it’s bad to be real about the ‘hard’ stuff… Cause we have been taught something is wrong with us for feeling…. Cause people think someone won’t like them through the bad stuff… Cause people are scared to be REAL!! We are taught emotions are bad, don’t feel them, don’t show someone your true colours – what they don’t experience hurt and sadness too? Whatever the fucking reason – we need more real. Don’t accept that the ‘roses’ you see is all anyone ever experiences…
ALWAYS REMEMBER that they have partners, families, kids, friends, work colleagues, neighbours or the angry driver that hurt their feelings deeply at some point on some days for whatever reason and they get upset, hurt, cry, and angry too. Why? Because we are fucking HUMAN!!
Don’t think that the happy times someone shares on Facebook is all they ever experience. We get stressed out over things in our lives, whether money, kids, family, work – you name it. Humans get physically, emotionally and mentally sick, whether for a moment, a day, a week, a month or even years. Why? Because at some point in their life, someone close to them hurt them at some point. Everyone deals with things differently – some cry, get angry, rage, some bury it so deep they get depressed and don’t even know why, some avoid it by drinking, smoking, taking drugs, some meditate, do yoga or otherwise…. However someone deals with it – is their very HUMAN NATURE!!
Come on people, let’s be real, don’t believe everything you see that’s always only roses cause it fucking ain’t. ALWAYS REMEMBER we are ALL HUMAN on this planet, we all have the same shit going on in some way or another. Just because someone is having a good day, don’t think that they don’t have bad days too.
We are here to learn and accept ALL parts of us. What we don’t like in another person, is what we don’t like in ourselves. So if you find yourself pointing the finger at someone else – remember there are 3 fingers pointing back at yourself.
I’ve had several people tell me/speak to me about social media this week with this exact topic about what we portray to the world, whether on social media or our work or otherwise. If you think my life is all happy and roses, well, ALWAYS REMEMBER, I am human, just like you, and I have real life problems and issues with people, places and things, just like you. And sometimes I end up on the kitchen floor bawling my eyes out with how fucking hard it is at times.
Please be in touch with me, if you’d like me to show more ‘real’… I have a private Facebook support group that I support my clients and students with and am very REAL in there, in a supportive environment.
Namaste = “My Soul honours your Soul. I honour the place in you, where the entire Universe resides. I honour the light, love, truth, beauty and peace within you, because it is also within me. In sharing these things we are united. We are the same. We are One.”
**and I add, I honour all of you, the light and the dark, the good and the bad, for what is within you, is also within me.
