Jealousy in Your Pocket

You had a good day, you fantastically woke up in a good hair day, you met a nice people on the coffee shop who hold your door while you were leaving with two cups of coffee at hand, you got a surprise message from your friend. Then you switched to Instagram and saw images of people partying in boats, wearing the IT-dress you were eyeing but couldn’t afford this month and your mood suddenly darkens. We have all experienced it at some point in our lives, God knows I experienced it a lot in the past few months. This continues as you torture yourself and wonder why your life doesn’t compare to their shiny perfect photos.

Here is a truth to be told: Social media life is not real! It is highly unlikely that people will post photos of their break-up with their husbands, their credit card debt or illness photos that shape them into horrible mutants!

We all post better versions and days of ourselves. Being jealous of these pretty moments can do only damage. What we think, what we say can touch our hearts and darken it. It can prevent us from living life to the fullest, as we can’t live our best life if we are too busy wishing we had someone else’s success.

Sometimes all we really need to do is shift our focus to what we do have. Do not count others blessing but think of your own blessings!

Have a blissful day!
