Portfolio of Hope

As much as I love Instagram,

it isn’t real.

The photos you see,

they don’t represent real life.

No one posts about the bad day they’ve had,

all you see is what people want you to see,

the fun days out,

the smiles and laughs.

You don’t see the tears or the heartache,

you just see a ‘perfect’ life,

a life that doesn’t exist for perfection isn’t real.

Don’t let social media make you feel bad about yourself.

You don’t need to do anything or be anything except yourself.

Stop comparing yourself to everyone else.

You are enough.

You are a thousand times enough.

    Hi As I coach the one thing I hear time & time again is how lonely the kids are I train – too much time on these technologies means too much time alone in my eyes …… I think that’s why they form such good friendships at athletics & then age, looks , colour, popularity etc is never an issue – they end up with friends for life 😍
