How should I start this blog? Am I thankful to be connected with my long distant friends? Yes. Am I thankful for all the comparison the people out there have been making? No. Plus, I have never admitted it but for sure those Instagram pictures brought so much stress to my life.
Let me confirm it this way. I am a decent looking human being, truthfully speaking. I know I look good, in real life, but I’m used to be the one who was so obsessed with social media that I had to post so much for likes and comments. A pointless thing to do.
I was off social media for a-good-8-month until my cosmetic business started. Mainly, I just wanted to get more customers, to advertised my products, to see what women out there been using. Then the bad old habit came back, senselessly.
I started to compare myself with other women. Those ludicrous questions kept popping up in my head like “Why she prettier than me? Why she skinnier than me? I wish I was born in a richer family.” – The grass is always greener on the other side. They said.
I have been living and comparing myself with every woman I skimmed by on social media. Then I started stalking them. Don’t lie, every girl does. Until one day…
I was chasing luxury stuff, expensive vacations, high-end cars. At that very moment, I know I had become an unappreciated hussy. Then I cried.
I only have one life to live. Chasing things is not a healthy way to live this life. Wake up, wipe my face, delete social media account. Start breathing again.
