I wrote this blog post on my way to Arizona, spring break 2017 but never posted it. I just stumbled upon it today in my drafts and its exactly how I feel today so I decided to post away. Happy reading 🙂
Currently on my mind :: Jealousy
That is literally my least favorite word in the dictionary and I want to remove it from my vocabulary and instead replace it with something like — admire . . .
Social media has so much to do with how jealous we get. Some people post amazing photos and we sit there thinking “I want that” or “I want that life” it’s like why? People post things that they want you to see, you don’t really know who they are and what they go through on a daily basis. We are all so quick to judge someone for having a “perfect” life just because they choose to not air out their dirty laundry on social media.
I often have to remind myself to not get carried away admiring people’s photos and thinking I want the perfect life. God has such amazing plans for me and you, He gives us all the desires of our hearts. We should remind ourselves everyday that every single person has a different story to tell, no two people are the same nor will they tell the same story. Don’t compare yourself and your life to others. YOU ARE ENOUGH.
If you don’t like your current situation go change it, go search for what you really want out of life. Go chase you dreams. Don’t just live through social media, judging others and envying their lives. You do you, be yourself and always remember that you are loved more than you will ever know. You will always be enough.
There’s this quote that I always think of, “admire someone else’s beauty without questioning your own”.
Thanks for reading,
