If I asked you to name your thorns, your pain, what would you say? Questions pop up right away, like, “How vulnerable should I be on the Internet?” and “Who else deserves to understand my pain except for me?” Pain is personal. 🌙 🌟But growth is universal. We keep a lot of our pain hidden for many reasons: shame, trauma via sharing, so many more. But all over the place, you see people sharing messages of how they’ve grown from pain. How they’ve beaten it. How success has found them despite bad things happening. Growth is universal. We can share that without trauma, without shame. 🌙 🌟The result, as many of us know, is an Internet where everyone seems happy. Even those who share of how they’ve overcome growth often feel untouchable, better, elevated. It’s easy to feel left behind, wallowing, stuck, suffocating. 🌙 🌟I am someone who cannot share my pain openly. Not yet. For as much as I share, I leave out a lot. I leave out my family. My personal moments that are the most meaningful to me. That are the most painful. But I share growth. And sometimes it looks like this image: too prettied. Too polished. Too colorful, too soft, too flowery. Not enough thorns. 🌙 🌟I don’t know if it should look any different. There is no answer. Everyone shares what they can. But I actually find the sharing of growth to be a beautiful thing. It can be misleading, and it can be too prettied, but through sharing how we’ve grown we hint at the pain we’ve endured, and that, I think, opens up channels to talk further.

It was about that time that I added a little bit of color on my profile. The reason why I took a photograph of an orange painted slab is due to the concept of detail, minimalism, and shape, which all coincide with the elements of art.

It's a sweet, sweet lie.
