Nowadays we have made it all too easy to compare our lives to the lives of others. We no longer have to go to school with someone, know of someone through a friend, or hear about whoever through the grapevine. No. All it takes is logging into any social media site and with a few easy swipes of your pointer finger, enter someone else’s self-created online world. Emotions can take over -you could be doomed into a dreary world of sadness. But the grass isn’t always greener on the other side…most times it’s only a facade.
Talents and gifts go undiscovered and undeveloped when spending time imitating or even envying someone else’s self-created online world. Why not come back to the other side of the fence and live our own lives? Let’s not compare and become depressed. Instead, become who we ought to be by living our own lives the best we can.
Today make an effort to be thankful for all that you have.
~Psalms 139:14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.
