It is easy to want to compare yourself to others because you may perceive them as being farther along than you. However, you have no idea what that person has sacrificed, bought, or given up to be in their position. It’s important to stay grounded in your faith and to surround yourself with people who encourage you. The social media platform can be deceiving. We often forget that most people, including myself, only post a millisecond of their entire week. You have no idea what happened before or after that post. If you are like me, it takes me even longer to post one picture. I’ll have 10 of what looks like the same picture and compare small differences before posting. #guiltyI only want to post what “appears” to be the best photo.I’ve recently started posting the moving photos and slightly blurry photos to my stories. Why? Because they are funny to me. I can’t take life too serious. It is a good way to add humor into your day and to remind myself, I’m not perfect. I’m human, I take awful photos sometimes and other times I take amazing photos. It just depends. So, don’t compare yourself to others, it is waste of time and energy that you can never get back. You can use that time to be more productive and work on yourself. And like this scripture says, are you seeking the approval of men or God?
For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
Galatians 1:10 KJV
