Have you ever considered the similarities between Pinterest and porn?
I read this article the other day and it kind of blew my mind, because I’ve never considered it – but I found I totally agreed.
The thing the author talks about is how when you see the crafts/homes/parenting tips on Pinterest that are based on a fantasy, it causes you to have unrealistic expectations of your own life… Just like how porn causes unrealistic expectations for sex.
And you know what? It’s totally true.
I mean, I think I’m pretty good about presenting a full picture of my life on this blog. I don’t spend much time pretending our lives are perfect or that I’m a perfect wife. And if you think otherwise, trust me – I’m definitely a hot mess.
But the article it made me think a lot about what I expect of myself as a wife and mom… and why.
