Social media— a tool we love to hate. Some of us use it to stay in the loop of the latest news, both fake and real. Others use it as a way to get these monies by sharing content and helping brands create their digital presence. My most favorite users though are the ones who take advantage of the platform to share their authentic journey as a way to raise awareness to the challenges that we all at one point or another face in our journeys.
While everything ain’t for everybody, I think there’s something to be said about using social media to socialize about subjects that are near and dear to ourselves, cultures and societies. I am in constant awe with the brave souls who lead by example in this quest for more authentic, vulnerable conversation.
Healing only comes after we know, accept and share our authentic selves.
