And I think I might have an idea why.
It all has to do with these three words: social media hangover.
You know what I'm talking about, right? When you scroll through feed after feed after feed of amazing photos of beautiful people in even more beautifully amazing places?
I know, I know. It's not really reality. These are filtered feeds curated with the express purpose of showing people how fab their life is. And I know that. I mean, I'm guilty of curating a feed that's very much the same type of vibe. I mean no one wants to see a pic of me wearing my yoga pants, sitting in front of the computer editing photos and writing posts. But I'm still finding it a bit tough to stomach — even with that knowledge.
Do you ever feel the same way?
I think I just need to turn my focus off other feeds for a bit, stop comparing myself to others
It actually reminds me of a comparison I read once about the difference between the way North Americans live versus Europeans. Basically, North Americans are always living for the future, for some far-off time and completely taking for granted the here and now. Europeans, on the other hand, are said to live much more in the moment.
Just a little something to think about.
Happy Wednesday and thank you for stopping by!
