Am I an influencer yet?
I mean, I did take a photo over my eye with a donut and slapped on a pretty good preset! If you don’t know what I mean when I say “influencer” I’m simply referring to all those pretty cool Instagram and YouTubers that have lots of followers, lots of cool photos and a lot of social media influence. 👯♀️ Do I honestly want some of those things? Well of course I do! Being able to share my postpartum depression OCD and anxiety experience with as many people that I can would be AMAZING! I’m talkin’ bout the bomb dot com. It took me a solid 3 months before I even summoned the courage to ask for help and when I did there wasn’t nearly as many resources as I had hoped there would be. It was like we were all too ashamed to talk about these thoughts or feelings... giving them way more power and control over our lives.
Im SO proud of my following of 6k. (@proud_and_twinng on IG & TikTok) I mean over the MOON proud. I want to use what ever influence that I do have to share the love and keep supporting other moms. Moms who have no resources, friends or whatever. So, no. I don’t try to post the same content as others on my feed. I try to be honest and real. My life isn’t perfect...it’s messy and imperfect which is how it was meant to be. I’m truly trying to find and be my authentic self.
