  1. Hey there, I had not visited your blog before but found it through the CT Bloggers FB group link. I am glad I did! I checked out some other posts and really like your writing style! I’m sorry you are having a tough time. It is hard with social media when people can display an edited, filtered version of their lives — it does make it seem like others are excelling. I keep reminding myself that others may have their own battles that I am not aware of. And I hear you on the house buying process — can totally relate to the stress. I almost broke down crying at our closing when the mortgage company trying to throw a huge wrench in the process.

      Hi Meredith! Thanks for the reply and kind words! Yeah I’m not looking forward to closing! Lol well, I hope that i can continue to tell my truths here so that others know it’s not always sunshine and rainbows in bloggyland! 😉 I hope that you keep visiting! Please leave me your blog link so that I can return the favor! :)

  2. Hi Jenny, Sorry to hear you’re feeling down. On top of that the home buying process. When you’re feeling so blah, social media sometimes makes it worse. But following the right folks does add some inspiration and motivation. Hang in there, and take things one step at a time. This is just a small hurdle, and things will get better. Things don’t come easy, right? =)

      Thanks Dee!! You’re always so inspiring! You’re certainly right about things not coming easy, but then I’m glad they don’t because I perhaps wouldn’t appreciate them that much when they do! 😉 <3

  3. Sorry to hear you’re feeling down. And yeah, what Bonnie said about social media is right — what you see in the news feed isn’t the whole picture. Best of luck with the home-buying.

  4. You know what, Jenny? The fact that you’re self-aware…probably more self-aware than most people…is your greatest strength. Plus you’re sharing your experience with others. It might not seem like it, but your honesty might strike a chord with some people. Good luck!

      Cecilia, thank you! I do try to be aware, but sometimes…. You know :) I hope that if one person can get something good out of this mess, then it’s worth it to me. <3

  5. It’s even worse that social media has created this false sense of beauty and worth. I know my life is far, far from perfect, but I fall into the trap myself.
    Just know you’re not alone – and I know that doesn’t help, because when that dark tunnel appears, it sure feels like you are.
    I’m thinking of you Jenny. Do what makes you happy. I’m cheering for you.
