She challenged us all to post what was *really* going on behind those pretty pictures we all curate and publish.
So here's mine, starting with the most recent:
Attending a "Time Traveller's Ball" on Saturday night - 30 minutes after this photo was taken, I t-boned a car that had run a red light. Thankfully nobody was hurt, but both cars were totaled. The other driver was a college girl who now has a massive ticket, a spike in her insurance, and is taking her finals today. So while I feel sorry for myself, I feel even sorrier for her.

On a cruise with Lady Carolyn in 2012 - I was sea sick *the entire time.*
Way way back (to when I started this blog!) - I was going through the worst breakup of my life. The morning after this ball, I packed up my entire apartment and left while my ex was out of town. It was terrifying.
We all curate and share what we want people to see and know. I tend not to share negative things. I don't want to dwell on them myself, let alone be a bummer to my friends. Even accepting Wearing History's challenge has been difficult because I don't want to remember these things and feel them again.
I don't really have a way to sum this up except to throw my support behind what Lauren M. is saying. Be compassionate. We are all human.
