    Sometimes I feel inadequate too. Whether it’s because of someone else’s photos or writing….I have to remind myself that where I’m at right now is where I’m supposed to be. I have to start somewhere and God will show me the next step. Why is that sometimes so hard to remember? Thanks for sharing your post and heart.

    The gremlins are something I struggle with too – Instagram is fun and inspirational, but as soon as I start comparing myself I start to
    fall into a pit of self loathing. Thanks for writing bravely, and sharing a ladder for climbing out.

    This was a great post. You put into words so many of the things that I have been feeling over the years. I’m a huge fan of Brene too and am currently working through one of her early books, The Gifts of Imperfection. Keep up the good self-work. You’re benefitting more than just yourself – ten-fold!

  5. I’ve been on the net for more than 20 years and I’m still sometimes surprised how addictive it still can be! The applications are different but the human reflexes and attitudes aren’t! As I said and wrote so many times … there’s a X box in every window of the computer and sometimes you have to click it to get back to your real life … never forget it!

    You are a brave brave girl to share your story and help others who are facing the same fears. I’m new to blogging and Instagram but I have already experienced Instagram envy by looking at perfectly choreographed images taken from professional cameras. I spent two whole days reading up on photography to figure out how I could achieve similar effects until I realised that without a huge investment in equipment I wasn’t getting anywhere and decided to make do with what I have. Thank you for sharing your story.
