Ep. 8 - Catphished
So this is a challenging story for me to share because it feels so very vulnerable and personal while hitting some of the lowest points in my life.
If you're unaware of what catphishing is; it's when someone engineers a false persona to play with someone's emotions to gain money, trust, or an emotional relationship. So who is really behind the mask? Sometimes we never find out but the deception is cruel, and the after-effects can be devastating.
Sadly, this is an all too common occurrence within the realm of social media. As someone who is not proficient in this form, I got duped quite easily. However, this experience came with breakthroughs in my depression, low self-esteem and spiritual gifts, and because of all of this, I have gained valuable insight into who I am while also breaking the pattern of terrible mood swings.
I hope you enjoy this episode.
