The temptation to be something I’m not – especially as a blogger – is real.
I’ve felt the pressure to wear high heels all of the time just for the sake of taking photographs that make me look like some street style fashionista. To wear my hair in styles that are more palatable for the brands I try to reach out to.
I even feel the temptation to appear like I have it all together. To appear that nothing is ever wrong, that I never have any challenges in life, and that I never have moments where I struggle with this. No one wants to hear about how you’ve wrestled with your identity or struggled with your body image – right? They just want to see high-quality, Instagram-worthy photographs in exotic places.
That’s what gets the most likes – right?
But the truth is, that’s not me and that’s not the reality of my life.
