ARE YOU SUICIDAL BECAUSE OF SOCIAL MEDIA,READ THIS

image
It’s that girl again on your IG feed,she’s not wearing daisy duke but she’s wearing something equally sexy,reminding you how awful your legs are.

Next post is a photo of a girl sitting on a vespa with a slightly blurred view of the Eiffel tower,she works for vouge magazine,that girl travels the world for free because her job calls for it,makes you wanna trade jobs with her.

That girl with sexy arms just posted her Wednesday grind,showing off her sweaty no make up selfie, partially exposing a bit of her 6 pack abs,made your post baby flab dangling off your belly feel more gigantic today.

The girl you’re stalking because of her hot boyfriend,just posted 100 blooms of roses on her feed,made you furious because you realized the last time your husband gave you flowers was 10 years ago.

Okay,I know I’m being too harsh but woman,let me show why these people have what they have while you feel like the universe has conspired against you.

That girl with sexy legs I’m sure have some flaws,but she’s smart enough to figure out she has sexy legs to flaunt,that’s why she’s flaunting them,and genius enough to celebrate the good rather than sulk over the bad.

That girl who travels the world for free because her job calls for it? I’m sure she worked hard for it,do you even have an idea how many jet lags she’s had,or rerouted flights she’s been through because of bomb scare??? or the number of delayed flights she’s had and the number of parent teacher conferences she missed because she’s either in Ibiza or Morocco for a business trip?

That girl with sexy arms and legs I’m sure was not born with them,imagine the gallons of sweats she’s poured,the number of push ups she counted, the curses she made every time she feels like giving up but she can’t because her trainer says don’t stop,the number of pizzas and donuts she said no to,to achieve what she wanted, take note those sexy body parts were not handed to her.

That girl you’re stalking because of her hot boyfriend? do you even know why she got flowers??? have you thought about the possibility that she and her boyfriend just had a fight? because he’s spending way too much time in the gym trying his best to look hot??? neglecting the poor girlfriend alone,and that’s why he was trying to make up for his lost hours with tons of flowers???

Now let’s look at your side of the story.

Your legs aren’t the best but your locks have the luster to die for,do you even know that?

You don’t get to see the world because you’re a full-time mom,but you’re present on every school event and witnessed how beautiful your child is growing,you’re part of each milestone in his life,his 1st hair cut,when his 1st tooth erupted,1st baby steps,the 1st time he said mama,you even had it video taped,posted it on your IG,and guess what? that vouge girl was in Paris at that time and shed tears from that post.

You might not have the best abs and arms but you have your husband to wrap your flabby arms around with,he even compliments how good they feel and how he can’t sleep without your arms around him.

Your husband might not have given you flowers in the last decade but he spends all his days off with you,the gym does not share his off days,he doesn’t care whether he looks hot or not because you always tell him he’s hot.

A oh! that neighbor you have who always tweet about her daughter’s academic achievements? well you have no idea how she wished to have a child like yours, when you tweeted about how your eldest helps you cook rice,wash the dishes and vacuum the floor all the time.

So you see woman, what you think is perfect isn’t that perfect at all,no one has really been given everything ,because there is no way we can have it all,or maybe we can,but not without hard work, and not all at the same time.

So tell me which of these characters are you? And who’s your favorite.

Thanx for visiting my blog,xoxo.

    Love this post! It made me laugh. I guess I am the kind of girl who just understands nothing worth having comes easy. Sometimes you just need to work really hard to become the kind of girl you want to be. 😛

  4. Love this inspirational post Bing.
    We have a lot of things to be thanked for rather than comparing our life with others and you mention some of them

  5. Excellent post, very thought-provoking. We live in a digitalized world that allows us a peek into everyone else’s lives, but we are only seeing the highlights and that can sometimes make us feel bad about our own lives because we see all of it – the good the bad and the ugly. Social media can be a wonderful thing, but it is not good if it makes people depressed about their own lives.

    Bing this is a wonderful and inspired post. Your writing is so nuanced and fabulous. So full of insight. I agree, no one is quite what the seem, we all accentuate what is best about ourselves. I do hope that most people appreciate what they have rather than dwelling on what they do not have…
    Which girl and I. I am the one who works like a demon to make everything look so easy, who is ill and works so hard to look like the picture of health, and I am grateful for all that I have and am. I am grateful, too, of being able to read your blog.
