A few weeks ago I posted a very real, in-the-moment TikTok showing behind the scenes of an instagram photoshoot. I was really vulnerable that day and felt all kinds of defeated — puffy, acne showing, just…down.
I’ve never shied away from sharing the authentic me and I wanted to show that beyond every instagrammable photoshoot are real people with flaws and insecurities, possibly just like the ones held by the people viewing my content. I’m painfully aware (because I do it too) that looking at Instagram photos and social media posts sometimes makes us feel like we need to change in some way or another to conform to a certain standard or ideal.
That’s why I posted the TikTok – to show my community that it’s okay to have bad days, and that it’s okay to be honest about what they’re going through offline. I always hope that people who consume my content feel supported and understood.
