I’m Feeling 22

I have been MIA from my blog recently. I tried to do a come back but I lost interest again and I wasn’t quite sure. Now I understand why- social media and Instagram! I was not loving my posts as my feed didn’t look like everyone else’s which made me think the same about my blog. I am not the best with taking pictures and editing, and I don’t really enjoy photography but I was trying to improve. I have now realised that most things on Instagram are fake. I have felt insecure as I thought I was not doing much with my life compared to these people on Instagram. But I soon realised that my Instagram could also show that I have this amazing life by setting a day to go and take pictures in different locations and take a few different outfits and then post a different picture everyday. I feel like I need to just do what I want to do and not worry about what everyone else is doing. I have been put off using my blogging Instagram due to all these reasons and I can’t imagine picking it up any time soon. I am hoping to keep going with my blog and maybe have a mini makeover as I haven’t done anything with it for a year which may give me more motivation.

So it’s coming up to my 22nd birthday and I am excited but also very apprehensive about it. I have been having one of those melt downs about moving out, getting married, having children all by 25… yeah… one of those… I am not ready to grow up but the years are going by so quickly! Since becoming single early this year, I have such an amazing time and I now realise how important friends are. I have been out most weekends and I even went on a girls holiday which I 100% wanted to do. I am making sure that I start making loads of memories and doing exciting things.

I am so happy with how much more confident I have gotten. I am slowly getting better at doing things by myself and getting over anxiety. I  am proud how I handled my relationship break up which I was in for 2 and a half years. I did not cry a single tear which really surprised me and made me realise how unhappy I must have been which was very unexpected. I am currently enjoying being single and I now know what I actually want in a future relationship.

So I thought I’d give my blog a little update on how I am feeling at the moment. I hope I can get into blogging again and have an amazing birthday etc.

    So happy to hear that you’ve been doing well and making memories with your friends! I was wondering where you’d gone haha! I get what you mean about comparing your Insta feed to everyone else’s, I’m struggling as I prefer to be behind the camera than in front, which doesn’t seem to be as popular as the outfit shots. I guess it’s all about doing what you want to do, as that’s the way you’ll be happy with it xx

      Awww thanks Hannah! I haven’t been active in ages and I do miss it! That is very true the outfit pictures definitely get more likes and I am exactly the same about being behind the camera- especially as I’m so unphotogenic haha! I need to forget about it and just do what I want like! Thanks for the comment girl means a lot! Xx

    I hope you have a lovely birthday! I used to stress about IG so much but now I just post here and then and stop worrying about it. I feel like IG makes me feel inferior and under pressure which isn’t healthy xx
