Scrolling through other people’s feeds can make you feel inadequate. You might think their lives look so much better than yours, or they’re working harder than you and being more successful. There’s this insidious pressure to keep up, and make your life as perfect as theirs appears to be.
But remember: you’re only seeing what they want you to see. You don’t see their hard times, their struggles and insecurities, their setbacks and disappointments. You don’t see the years of effort it took them to get where they are today.
Stop comparing yourself to others’ ideas of perfection. We all have different paths to walk, and the only person you should be competing with is yourself.
