social media

Mariella Frostrup says that social media makes much of its ability to create a global village, yet many people feel marooned.

Judging your own life in contrast to those apparently being led by others, whether on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter is a mistake we are all increasingly guilty of. Such edited excerpts don’t offer an accurate communication, but they do have the capacity to make anyone with a pulse feel inadequate and despairing of their own lacklustre, unPhotoshopped existence.

Remember that moments captured in a picture are just that, a moment in time. You don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes and the majority of the time, it’s not as glossy as the photo portrays.

I'm a woman living in London and this blog captures what lands within my sight and connects with my psyche. I expect it to evolve naturally. It is a place I shall visit from time to time and where things that I am touched by deeply will find a soft place to land. As a psychotherapist and a continuing student, most of the articles you shall find here will somehow, in some way, be related to therapy and well-being. I love comments, so feel free to add yours, whenever and however. I wish you well.
