BLINDSIDED - Instagram Thoughts by Nicholas Leblanc

#BLINDSIDED. Sometime in life we become blindsided. We are so focused on the end goal, we forgot to learn from the process. Sometimes in relationships we think are going well, fall apart right before our eyes. We then become confused and wonder: Why did this happen? Where did I go wrong?
.
Sometimes we learn from these questions analyze our mistakes and sometimes we go over board. We pick ourselves apart until there is nothing less. .
.
In life when we feel blindsided. Like it came out of nowhere, we must understand that our shock, and surprise is normal. I encourage you all to learn from your life as it can teach many great lessons.

Wiping Away The Facade by Nicholas Leblanc

Wiping Away The Façade.

These past few weeks, I have realized a lot about myself. I have realized a lot about my life. The past few months I knew that something was missing from my life, but I didn’t now what. Days would go by, I felt like I was just a machine going through the motions. I didn’t figure out why until recently. .

Over the past few years I have closed myself off and built walls and façades around me. And I did not find out this until a little over a week ago. Once I realized that, through the help of others, I’ve started to try to break down those walls and façades and let the real me come out. I remember talking to someone on that day, saying that I’ve built these walls up for so long, I don’t even know who the real me is. Realizing that is huge. .

So I am on a journey of being more authenticity me, and I am so grateful for that. Beginning this journey, I have created new connections and strengthened old ones. I have become more comfortable with myself.

I want to share my story with you all because I believe we can use social media for more than pretty pictures. We can use it to connect and help. I will starting today begin to be more open with my life and talk about taboo issues such as my experiences with mental health. Because it will stay taboo if we don’t talk about it. I know this is far bigger than me, but it is still important that I can help in any way. Because I know when I was younger if I saw someone sharing their experience, I would have felt a little better about myself and that’s what I am trying to do.

I hope you will join me on this journey. Stay awesome! You got this!
