I styled a mom jean in 5 different ways

Back to the reason why we are here today, I took a week break sometimes last week, I really wanted it to be long but I just had to come back soon

A lot of people reached out to me asking me why I took a break from social media.

People I never thought would notice I was gone, reached out to me and that made me feel special

I love you all and thanks for checking up on me

LIFE LATELY|| WHY I TOOK A BREAK FROM SOCIAL MEDIA AND WHAT HAVE BEEN UP TO

The truth is I got tired of everything, literally everything on the internet. The information I was digesting were too toxic for me, so I had to take a break.

Fake and toxic people everywhere, people I actually look up to but they see me as a threat and the lies were just too much

It was crazy and too much for me to handle and taking a break was the only solution I could think of

I literally unfollowed a lot of people and removed some people from my following, it was that bad

I’m the kind of person that doesn’t think impostor syndrome could get to me and weigh me down all of a sudden

I wasn’t sure of myself anymore, I was comparing myself to other people online.

I joined a 30 days #consistencychallenge on Instagram and I got tired in between

At some point, I hated what I was doing and at the same time people were cheering Me up

I organized my first online class and it was successful, at least something good came out of everything

After the class a lot of people reached out to me for mentorship, I was feeling pressured like what do I even know

I was working on a new collection for my clothing line and am still working on it, everything was overwhelming

Why I took the break

I was having self doubt about everything

From the new collection, who will buy from me during this lockdown, are my designs good enough, all sort of negative thoughts

It was too much for me to handle and it was affecting my mental health.

Like i said earlier, the break was the only solution I could think of before it leads to depression

I was seeing other peoples progress and I was really doubting myself.

Like what am I doing wrong, where did it all go wrong

The break was the only solution I could think of and it helped a lot and I got time to focus on what really matter, nothing was distracting me

I had Time to sleep and plan well. The reading part is in God’s hand

What i did while i was away

You must be wondering what I was doing during the break, if you are expecting a big win, sorry to break your heart

I literally ate and slept during my break off social media, I didn’t even read a book

I enjoyed my break and I hope to take more break from social media

I may or may not be releasing my new collection soon, fingers crossed
