Happy Wednesday, beautiful people!
We’re about to get serious. It’s time to talk about something that’s often overlooked – anxiety.
For those who suffer from anxiety, something that may seem minuscule will not feel that way in the moment. With social media, it’s so easy to read other people’s negative thoughts and let them infiltrate your own thoughts. It’s easy to look at someone else’s negative tweet and start feeling the same. Or even worse, it’s easy to look at someone else’s positive post and start comparing yourself – cutting yourself down until you no longer see your own beautiful soul.
That’s where Quinnipiac seniors Hayleigh and Elizabeth are jumping in to take a stand.
The two friends are launching an online support system called Undoubted and on Friday, their mission to make social media positive and honest again starts.
Hayleigh and Elizabeth met during their freshman year at Quinnipiac University. Quickly, the two found they shared many similarities, from the basic things like being entrepreneurship majors, to the more personal things like struggling with anxiety. Being twenty-somethings they are active on social media and witness negativity in the online space daily. Together, they wanted to make an impact. They set out to provide a more positive space for impressionable women to surround themselves with, while also being mindful of all the scary firsts, and big decisions that come with adolescence. They decided that being honest about their own experiences could provide comfort to other young women.
They hope Undoubted will create a network of other honest women like themselves- to have raw, real, and meaningful conversations. No one should have ever have to feel alone. Hayleigh and Elizabeth desire to be the face of female empowerment, they want to help change the stereotypes surrounding those who suffer from anxiety, and they made the vow to live undoubtedly every day.
I’m going to join their fight to live life Undoubted. Are you?
