What you don’t see.
They say a picture tells a thousand words…
but a picture only shows so much.
A picture shows what happened in one second of that day, it doesn’t tell of the other 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds.
Instagram is a highlight reel, what you don’t see about my adventures to Hawaii is the fact that the morning I was meant to leave I almost cancelled and didn’t go.
The day this photo was taken I could hardly move from my bed. I made it out for a drive and this was the only stop I could get out at.
Of course I was happy to be out and seeing something beautiful but what you don’t see in that moment is the pain, sickness and the fact my body was flaring 3 invisible chronic illnesses.
So before you compare yourself to others on this app or in life remember you only see a tiny portion and things aren’t always as they appear.
I’m not sharing this in any way to get sympathy or attention I just want everyone to be mindful of others because you never know what is going on. Thank you to @chronicallyfatiguedmaka for the inspiration for sharing what you don’t see – you can see her post here: https://www.instagram.com/p/B9bR-VvgYjM/
Hope you’re all okay and be sure to check on your loved ones during this time. I love you all lots
