In what though? The cool club? The popular group? Are you sitting at the popular table now?
Don't be ashamed of this. Everyone loves attention. Everyone loves being praised for things they're proud of! Everyone loves a digital pat on the back, with the magical double tap. And there's nothing wrong with that. What's wrong is that it places more value on your social media popularity, than the quality of your life. If you think there's room in your life to improve, thats awesome. If there's something you want to accomplish, or somewhere you want to be, that's great! If other people's lives are a positive motivation to get your rear in gear to get the life you've always dreamed for yourself, that's amazing. What's wrong is letting anybody else's life make you feel any worse about your own.
The reason this happens is because we see all the low points in our own lives, and compare them to high moments of others. But when we look at the high points in others lives, we don't see the low points. We don't see the struggles. We don't see the stupid fights they have with their husbands. We don't see them picking at their zits in the mirror every night. We don't see the hours spent in sweats, binging out on Netflix and anything we can find to dip in Nutella.
And while you're at it, share the good things in your life, without the intention of giving others' lives less value. Lift each other up. Share good ideas, good thoughts, and complement each other. Collaborate! Leave no room for negative intentions.
If I'm one of those people who makes you feel like your life isn't cool enough, stop reading my blog. Stop following me on Instagram. As much as I try to keep it real, maybe I'm not being as real as I thought. And if that's the case, PLEASE let me know. I just want everyone to feel like the rockstars you truly are.
