Participation in social media makes it easy for us to assume that someone else’s life going better that ours. We  curse our own fate and begin to envy those we see without ever knowing the details of that person’s life or the challenges he/she may face. It’s important to remember – especially in regards to social media- that things are not always as they appear, and that everyone experiences the highs and the lows that come from simply living. Don’t be so eager to forfeit your path in exchange for another’s. You don’t know what it takes to walk in their shoes, nor what they are enduring while on their journey. Instead of resisting your life, choose to be grateful. To compare means to negate all the blessings that have been given unto you.
