The Message in the Mess: Why Keeping it Real Matters

Maybe this is a word God has just for you today…

Comparison can be a daunting place to live, often causing us to feel like everyone around you has it all together. And social media can be brutal when we take a scroll and begin to hold every post in stark contrast to our own reality.
 
But in truth, there’s always more than meets the eye. In a recent Instagram reel, I shared my own struggles with instability, moving over 55 times growing up, and having a hard time making friends. It’s important to me to keep it real, because I never want to give the impression that I have it all together when, like you, I simply don’t.

I love using Instagram and Facebook stories to share the ups and downs and behind the scenes of my everyday life. Whether it’s leaving the house with mismatched shoes or just feeling scatterbrained, I try to be as honest and transparent as possible. I believe that it’s important to show people that we all have struggles, and that nobody’s life is perfect (just take a stroll through my house and you’ll totally get it!). 
No matter where you are or what you’re doing, it’s easy to look around and feel like everyone else is on some magical carpet ride of life. Maybe they have a seamingly perfect family, or they’re in great shape, or they always seem to know what they’re doing. But the truth is, every single person has a story. Everyone has baggage, and everyone has a history. That can be lost on us if we aren’t reminded that they, too, have walked a road that lead them to where they are today…just like you and I have.

Our struggles and challenges are what make us who we are. They shape our character and help us grow into better versions of ourselves. You are not alone in your mess. Imperfection marks us all.
 
Sharing those struggles can be daunting and scary. What will people think if they see we’re broken? And there’s the rub. We isolate, turn our focus inward, and guard our hearts at the expense of connecting with someone who could pray us through our season. Or even offer wisdom.
So the next time you’re scrolling through social media or comparing yourself to the mom in the car line, and feeling like everyone else has it more together than you do, remember that you’re not seeing the whole picture. 
 
Behind every perfect post, behind every perfect family photo, behind every smile and laugh, is a real person with real struggles. And if you’re feeling down or discouraged, just know that you are valued and loved and worthy. Your story is important, and there’s a message in your mess.
