So often we scroll through social media, looking at how perfect everyone else's lives appear. Did you miss that key word? "Appear", as if social media portrays reality. Yes, this moment captured was a peaceful moment. But what you can't see is the 20 minutes of arguing over what movie to get, the frustration because one didn't want pizza, the 3 times we had to stop the movie to deal with stuff, or the yelling and pouting and countless not listening moments throughout the day.
Life is full of wonderful moments; however, not every moment is wonderful. Don't be deceived by the perfect picture or phrase that's blasted on social media, I can assure you no one's journey is as perfect as we often perceive it to be. Likewise, don't forget to acknowledge the good moments in your own world, even on days when it's a struggle to see anything good.
“If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves. Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else,”
