Since starting this blog, I feel naked on the internet. We live in a world that forces us to advertise the best possible version of ourselves at all times. But what happens when the best possible version of yourself is still incapable of meeting the reasonable expectations placed on you? What happens when you show the truth?
You could say that I have two sides to me: the malleable, accommodating, people-pleasing Kerrstee, and the Kerrstee who couldn’t give two shits about anything or anyone. If you have known me personally, you have probably only met the former. The one who lies when she is falling apart because “I’m fine” is easier to swallow than “I feel dead already.” It almost feels like the latter side is exposing the former as a liar by starting this blog.
