Her caption read: “You don’t have to look perfect or do things perfect to be enough.
“You don’t have to be perfect to be enough. You are enough just to be yourself.”
She added: “You were always more than enough.
“We live in such a perfectionist society that it makes us think we have to do all these things and look like this to fit in.
“We may end up forgetting the most important things of all: cultivating self-love and LIVING a life that makes us happy.
“We don’t see all pages and versions. We never do. We only see the ones people want to post. We see the small excerpts.
“Little snippets that are often the best, prettiest, most flattering, most aesthetic.”
She ended the post by reminding fans that social media can be great as long as people remember it’s never reality.
Josephine concluded, “You don’t have to be perfect. You just have to do your best to be yourself. ‘Cause you’re gold, baby girl.”
And in the same post, Josephine shared some great examples of Instagram not showing everything.
