Soo cute baby.. love the way he laughs. Yieee! ü
It’s sooo easy to be jealous. And the internet sure isn’t helping! That fashion blogger always has the prettiest, most expensive clothes. Your classmate just posted photos on Facebook from that Europe trip she just had. Your friend just Instagramed about that wonderful party she’s at when you’re stuck at home. They have such wonderful lives, you think, and yours is so drab!
Before you start a pity party, remember that people only post what they want others to see. Of course they don’t post their unflattering photos and embarrassing encounters (and I mean really embarrassing ones, not those funny cute ‘embarrassing’ stories, ok?) So when you scroll down their page, it feels as though you’re reading about their perfect life.
But no one’s life is perfect. We all have our best bits and our worst bits and before you glorify the people you see online (or celebrities or your friends even) remember that everyone has their own share of ups and downs. At the same time, don’t be one of those people who are always wishing for something bad to happen to the pretty, popular girls. There’s a quote I saw last month that says it all: "Blowing out someone’s candle won’t make yours shine any brighter."
And before you shout “But it’s their fault! They shouldn’t be bragging!” let’s take another self-check first. Are you really so humble? Remember, it’s not good to always be in the habit of judging others. What they do is between them and God. But your attitude, that’s where your concern should be!
So the next time you look at your Facebook and start feeling jealous, remember, you don’t want rotten bones! ;)
