He takes a picture with his brand new car, she posts a picture where she's chilling with her fiance, there's a picture of your friends having fun at a party or get together last night. All these kind of pictures are flashed on social media on a daily basis.
For some people, they tend to start feeling bad about their own selves when they see these pictures. They wonder, 'Why isn't it me?' 'Why am I not the one having this much fun?' 'Why am I not the owner of that brand new car or house?' It becomes a problem for these people.
They always compare themselves with what they see on social media and they start feeling bad when it appears they don't have what they see.
They easily forget that most people only post their best pictures online and that they don't know what those people might be going through in their own lives, but because of what they see on social media, they conclude that life is all rosy for them.
It's easy to upload such pictures if you want to really show off or if it makes you feel good. You can chat up your own friends to hang out at cool pics and take shots. It's easy to take a pic with any car or house and claim it's yours. Taking pics shouldn't be a problem if you want to feel good about yourself.
The important thing is asking yourself why. Why do you feel in a certain way when you see certain pictures online if you too can create such pictures yourself or take similar shots with ease?
There's no point in feeling down. Learn to genuinely feel good about yourself and for other people. When you look at it critically, there is no need to be jealous of anybody talk less of an online picture as long as you're doing your best in whatever you do.
Stop comparing yourself on social media. It does you no good. The fact that people upload awesome pictures everyday online doesn't necessarily mean that everything is well with them or that they are better than you.
Most of these people often upload pictures just to feel good about themselves. Some of them are actually lonely and depressed, but they see social media as a way to feel good about themselves. So why should you be jealous of any picture on social media?
Stop the envy, stop the comparison and just be happy with yourself and other people. You are happy when you're being yourself and doing what you want. If taking pictures everyday just like your friends will make you happy, please do. But don't ever feel sad or terrible about yourself because of what you see on social media.
Create your own fun for yourself. There is no reason to be unhappy, just maximize your opportunities and be happy wherever you find yourself.
It's been a while… Stop envying and keep winning!
