This is me and my uncle Jimmy. Last weekend we spent Saturday going through end of life preparations for him. My father in law is taking care of most things, but being witness to this was something I've never experienced before. It truly affects your whole heart. I'm posting this because it is my life #unfiltered. 
I was deeply struck by the story of Madison Holleran. I understand the struggle of depression and perfectionism, especially coming out of high school on top and feeling unprepared to meet the rigors of college. I understand the all encompassing pain and sadness you can feel when leaving home or making a drastic life decision or even feeling like you've failed. While I like to think I'm upfront and honest on social media, I'm making a renewed vow to post my real life, unfiltered. To show my friends, family and followers that I do struggle and that I am a real person. It's OK to not be OK. And it's OK to show people you're not OK. Let's end the stigma behind asking for help. Let's support one another. Most importantly, let's have the tough conversations so that we can grow together @espnW @sheknows @blogher #lifeunfiltered

  • rowan082413This breaks my heart but so happy you, Matthew & Uncle Vinny can be there to support & comfort him when he needs it the most. Your right sometimes things aren't ok and the beautiful reality is with family and friends support it all will be. We are all human and people need to sometimes be reminded there's really no such thing as being perfect. Being kind, thoughtful and supportive should simply enough. I Love you Pre and so blessed your part of our family! Give Uncle Cheese my/our love🙏
