It's easy to grow jealous when your friend hits a thousand Instagram followers before you, when nobody comments on your selfie but thirty separate people comment every variation of "cute" on your friend's post. So many people overshare and post constantly, sometimes making you feel like you're boring and have nothing to say. People create a perfect, airbrushed version of their lives through social media, making themselves seem blissfully happy. When we're constantly scrolling through filtered photos of the highlights of people's eventful lives, it's easy to think our lives are subpar or static.
There's a wonderful life you live, and it doesn't need to be constantly documented and shared with others. Truth is: people have nothing to prove to you, and most importantly, you have nothing to prove to anyone.
Do you use social media? How do you feel about it?
