I really loathe social networks and what they've become. It doesn't make people closer, it just gives them an excuse to not contact you directly. It allows people to project a polished impractical version of their lives (if they so choose) ... and I notice that anyone who decides to be real is somehow damaged and undesirable. (Unless you're already extremely successful or...

Welcome to the unfortunate time we live in. My husband and I don't have a ton of pictures together because we usually spend more time in the moment with each other than documenting. I second guess, third guess, and hell, fourth guess what I post and usually still feel underwhelmed. It's fucking hard. My best friend and I luckily still make sure we text each other a couple of times a week but other than that, most of the contact I receive outside of my home only comes from social media.

As far as Instagram is concerned, make sure your comments to other are more than 4 or 5 words. That actually can help you in the algorithm department. It's not a booming difference but it can help.

so this isn't a big update... just sharing what I've been up to. Work. It's hard being a decent artist and knowing you're not so good at tattooing... but that's the point of doing it. Get better. Keep working hard. It's supposed to be difficult otherwise everyone could do it.

I'd like to be more engaged with people

It's great to see you reaching out! I know things have been rough at times...Of course, I do keep up with you on FB and Insta....Best way to bring joy to others??? Find it in yourself first....if you don't have joy in you, you won't find it in the surrounds either. I have been working on serious self-improvement. Family life is great, but it's always good to work on yourself and that is what I have been doing. Finding peace with my flaws and owning them.ย
