"I miss Cheerful Ingrid," my co-worker told me on our way back from doing a Chinese food pick up for lunch. . I thought about what he said for a moment, then responded, "Well, I don't think anyone would say they miss Depressed Ingrid.” . "That's true," he said. . Instagram posts are supposed to show "happy" moments, or the ones we stage to look so. So I haven't been posting much. Would anyone want to see someone lying in bed all day? #lyinginbedallday #fucknowihavebedsores 🤘🏽. Or a post of someone appearing quiet and withdrawn? #notfeelingittoday #debbiedowner . Of course not. ... Social media, particularly Instagram, are just highlights of a person's life. One is allowing you to see what they want you to see. It doesn't mean they are any happier or live a more fulfilling life than yours. . So here is something I want you see - me about to go all hamm on a fully loaded Bloody Mary, garnished with a waffle breakfast slider, a deviled egg, a stick of celery, beef jerky, shrimp cocktail, and a pickle spear. And yes, this made me happy.
