Great read! That trap when we get caught comparing ourselves against others … having nice things, holidays but then that’s only the nice parts of an individuals life — you don’t see the other side. We envy what others have, we compare, we desire but we don’t have to.
I’ll admit, there’s a slight rush when your Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and whatever else gets a like, it’s almost a boost to the ego … I took a great snap, that status was popular, people like my tweet.
I had to face this issue, and so I decided to moderately use social media i.e. not jumping on immediately on the satisfaction of a notification … sometimes it’s difficult, you desire to know what was liked, what the comment was. I’m working on it though.
I installed a Facebook news feed remover, I now get a quote instead. I like Facebook for events, birthdays, photos and building friendships but I personally don’t need or want a feed — https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/news-feed-eradicator-for/fjcldmjmjhkklehbacihaiopjklihlgg
Get rid of shit that doesn’t contribute anything to your life.
Thanks for the prompt, its good to question what’s in your life, and whether you need it, whether its a contribution or just consuming you for the worst.
