In today’s divided and lonely society, people don’t trust others enough to show up as they genuinely are. Social feeds are a highlight reel that hides what’s going on beneath the best moments of our lives. We don’t broadcast the common feelings of self-doubt, uncertainty, and rough spots we know are part of being human. It takes courage to break out of that and showcase imperfection. But to create real relationships, we have to get real.
1. Take a plunge by sharing what you are experiencing and feeling in these times of uncertainty on social media. This can be one sentence or ten paragraphs, a photo or a video, whatever feels right to you. Being vulnerable takes bravery, but we can’t face the challenges without naming them. By sharing what’s on your heart, you may inspire others to open up too, so we can figure out a path forward together.
