Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday. Instagram has recently been accused of contributing to teenage depression. Let's face it. Our inner teenager is alive and well in all of us especially when we look at social media. Look at all those people having fun! How come I'm not having so much fun? Look at all the places everyone is going and I'm just happy to be paying my bills. How sweet! Look how in love everyone is! Does this sound familiar? Have you had this conversation in your mind?
Whether what we see is true or not has no bearing on our lives. Not everyone is having fun every minute of every day. That fabulous trip you see posted could have taken months of saving. Those people that are so in love? Who knows the trials and tribulations they already went through. Why do these posts make us feel envious? Why can't we be happy for someone else?
Jealousy is just as damaging as hate. They are emotions that cause internal damage as one begins to find fault in what they are doing wrong. Turn on the off switch to jealousy and see how much better you begin to feel.
Today's quote is, "Don't expect a jealous person to find joy in your happiness when they can't find joy in their own." Some people find it so hard to be truly happy for someone but the truth is you never know what someone else's life is like. You don't know the struggles, sadness and upsets in a friend's life let alone someone you barely know on Facebook!
Sadness, happiness, joy, misery, etc. etc. etc. are all part of life. Be happy for someone else because we all want people to be happy for us!
Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! ~Love, Amy
