I decided to write something a little bit different today because I’ve been thinking about how different I am sometimes when it comes to my blog versus me on the regular. I try to stick to being myself 100% on my blog and on my socials. I mean, who wants to follow someone who’s being fake right? Sometimes though, I do notice myself slipping into the more conservative, always happy on my socials type of blogger. When I mean more conservative, I don’t necessarily mean uptight…I just mean a little bit less…real than what I post on my personal accounts. I feel like some people may look at my blog and automatically want to put me in a certain box. It happens to celebrities and just everyday people quite often. That’s when the pressure to be a certain type of way is put upon you and then you feel you have to hide part of who you are.
I am more than just one type of person.
I love to [attempt to] wake up early, have a productive morning, use my planner, write positive quotes on my social media’s, dress all cute and fancy all the time while going out for coffee, etc. I love those things but I also sleep in a little later, stay in my room to myself, go out dancing and drinking at clubs, don’t feel like being productive, etc. I’m more than one person who loves different types of things and that’s fine. You don’t have to fit into one box.
I know content creators can relate to this because sometimes we’re put into a box when it comes to what we post on our social media or the topics we discuss. It’s a lot, but don’t be afraid to break out that one box and show all your sides. Either people can choose to accept all sides of you or not accept you at all.
Do you ever feel like you’re being put into one box? Let’s discuss!
