I recently wrote about this when it comes to looking at social media, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be require social media, we all assume everyone else is handling life better, when most people aren’t.
You compare yourself to this woman. Constantly. Maybe your version is slightly different. But whatever the specifics, you’ve painted a picture of the perfect person, and you measure yourself against her. Naturally, you always come up short. Because she doesn’t exist. Because she isn’t real.
She is a figment of your imagination, a social media creation, a marketing tool. Maybe she does exist—she’s the blogger you follow on Facebook or Instagram—and you’ve taken bits and pieces from her images and captions, and written the rest of the story.
You are enough; what you’re doing is probably enough too.
