Tired of Saying You’re “Fine?” Me, Too.

Life is messy. We’re all broken. Why can’t we talk about it?

I recently heard someone say that we’re living our lives so that we can post our next Instagram photo. We create the best possible version of ourselves online, with our real mess piled just off-camera. If you have hundreds of Facebook friends but haven’t told anyone about being in therapy, that you just yelled at your child or that you secretly love polka music, then you’re, no I’M, missing out on community.

So this is me coming clean. I’m stepping out of my hermit hole in hopes that you’ll do the same. Let’s own our broken – and our beauty – together.
