Chances are if you are on social media there is someone out there you compare yourself to. Maybe it’s a blogger with more followers than you or someone on Instagram who is always #flawless. Maybe it’s someone in a Facebook group who seems to have more friends on there, or maybe it’s someone who seems to just have their life 100 times more together than you do.
Whoever it is that you compare yourself to, stop. Don’t do it. I’ve got news for you.
Social media is lies. At least 80% of it is anyway. It’s just a highlight reel for most people.
That #flawless girl on Instagram? She has bad days too, she has days when she doesn’t want to get out bed in the morning (or afternoon). She has days when she feels worthless. She has arguments with her friends, she puts on clothes that make her feel fat, she get’s sick, things don’t always work out for her either.
The person who seems to have their life so well put together has days when they struggle too. The dishes aren’t always done, they don’t always make 100s in school, they forget things and run behind too.
The thing is that we are all people and people tend to mess up. We all have our own flaws, some of us just tend to show off the good in our lives more than others. Which isn’t a bad thing. I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with showing off the good in our lives. In fact we should celebrate the good. I’m just saying that the next time you feel like you aren’t as good as someone else remember that there is a lot that goes on off of social media that you don’t know about. Besides, you have worth. Stop comparing yourself to others and look at the good in you and in your life. I know it can be hard sometimes, but it’s there.
Peace Will Win
