“One reason we struggle with insecurity: we’re comparing our behind the scenes to everyone else’s highlight reel.”
It’s easy to get distracted, if not discouraged, by the successes and capabilities of others. Particularly with the advent of social media which allows people to pre-package the perfect image of themselves they wish to share with the world, it can easily appear that others have the life we only dream about. The reality though is far different. Behind these facades lie the same messiness we experience in our own lives. Rather than compare yourself, strive to give yourself a break and accept your humanness. Focus on making your own life better and richer with experiences and positive inputs and outputs, rather than worry about what others have or are doing.
