Honesty in the light of day is far more commendable than maintaining a facade for appearance’s sake. Unfortunately, people are often not honest, so they will poke at the vulnerabilities of people who do share more about their life struggles. However, if you are observant, you will notice over time that even the keeping up with the jones set will reveal what they truly think and feel during unguarded moments. I prefer to have empathy for people when they are down and not throw their life struggles in their face.
Be strong and be you. Look for positive things that motivate you in life, but do not feel like you can never share your vulnerabilities with others. However, I would not do it on social media as I am troubled by how others are torn apart for sharing their honesty about life struggles. Even those who claim to be “helping” someone struggling might be doing the opposite. So if you feel uncertain about something, then why not seek out a friend who will allow you to talk without judgment. I am not saying that person will never share their opinions with you, but a real friend would not make you feel less than in front of others.
