Let’s end the fake white teeth permasmiles and the glorification of awesome. How am I today as a Buddhist life coach and yoga dude? I’m tired and screw you, how about yourself? There’s a pressure to be ever happy and perfect in any kind of personal growth profession that can be really stifling and lead to huge shadow. It’s subtly reinforced daily online and few in the trade have the courage to have an openly bad day lest they be judged. Social media generally has it to some extent where people only share the best bits of their lives and not the rest, creating distorted comparisons, but this combined with the insecurities of my trade is really toxic…ah…honesty…doesn’t that feel better …oh damn, my mood is lifting now!!
