We live in an interesting time of sharing snippets of happiness on social media while assuming we’re seeing everyone else’s whole picture. We live in a time where we shout from the rooftops all that is good in our lives and hide the rest in the shadows. We create this culture of “compare and despair.”
We don’t talk openly about our challenges and we end up feeling like we’re all alone – that we are the only one feeling this way. That’s a slippery slope to thinking we’re somehow broken (while everyone else is whole and happy); that there’s something wrong with us and our lives (that no one else contends with these things).
