Don’t Compare

Just Be Real

Hello World and Happy Day My Friends

Yesterday a couple organizations that I follow on IG and whose blogs I follow, had a really big controversial comment debate about diversity, including everyone and how there are so many orgs that say they embrace diversity, are inclusive and believe in equality for everyone, yet their pages and what they post only show the “bright” side of things..

They never show the “real reality of things” they only show the fluff πŸ€”

And although I chose not to partake in the debate, I actually agree with the comments that were made πŸ™„

Social media does have a way of hiding the real deal and although I do not hide my feelings about anything on my page or in my blog, most do only show the fluff, leaving out the struggles and issues that we all face in life πŸ€” whether it be about van life, camping, hiking or whatever…

People tend to make things look like they are perfect when in all reality we know life isn’t perfect.. and no matter what there are struggles, breakdowns, breakups etc..πŸ™„

My point in all this is…

Don’t compare yourself to anyone, don’t hide who you really are and if you’re an organization that says that you embrace diversity then SHOW IT…

Say what you mean…

Mean what you say…

And when it comes to social media…

SHOW that you’re real don’t just talk about it…

Talk is cheap as we know and actions do speak louder than words…

So just be real people…

It’s not hard to do!!!

Hello World, My name is Ricci pronounced like Ricky, yet it's been mispronounced all my life and at my age I answer to just about anything 😊 I am a writer, a writer of motivational light. A writer about everyday life. My story is one of hope, inspiration & motivation... One that begins over a half a century ago, when life was much different than it is today. We all have our own story, for each of us is unique. Some have had it easy, some have had it hard. Yet I believe that each one of our stories can bring a bit of light to others and I hope mine will bring light to some of you. My goal is to tell my story with hope that others can see that no matter what happens throughout your life... You CAN prevail, even when it feels like you can't. For I know it's possible for I have and am prevailing each and every day. You are NOT alone... Everything is possible when you believe. Everything is possible when you believe in YOU ❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀ https://www.gofundme.com/riccis-healing-journey

  1. It takes time and effort to get to know someone well, regardless of how real they may be. None of us see everything about another person right away: it takes time to see through our fluff and theirs into the real people who will shine through if we allow ourselves to see them.
    Some people (I am one of them) are reluctant to display our whole selves immediately. We show certain aspects of ourselves only to those we have learned to trust, as otherwise we could wind up in a psychiatric ward.

    1. I get that Susan cause I don’t fully reveal myself either at first yet this post was totally about an organization that says they welcome diversity and yet the people they post on their hiking page is really fit hikers and trained climbers… There are many others that love hiking that aren’t trained or in the best of shape and it was a huge controversial discussion on Instagram because they are constantly posting things and saying stuff that is the opposite of what they claim to be about… This post was more about organizations then people πŸ˜‹
