Life Rarely Feels the Way it Looks


We spend a lot of time looking at other peoples lives in full-colour photos all over our feeds. They say a picture tells 1000 words, but that's still not enough for the whole story. This constant bombardment of consuming other peoples highlight reels will eventually have us comparing and wondering why our 'Behind The Scenes' aren't as glamorous, and we forget that we're looking at images designed to look great, but that doesn't always mean they feel that great. The more people I meet behind those amazing pictures, the more I'm realizing that no matter how awesome and unique of a life we present to the public, we're all in the same boat. We're all chasing something, feeling anxious, and running from the ghosts of our pasts. It doesn't matter if I'm on a yacht in Italy with a bunch of billionaires, or sitting in a hospital room staring at my grandmother's lifeless body, the most memorable moments of our lives aren't remembered for the way they looked, it was the way they felt. We look at the lives of others, but we have no idea how it really feels, most of the pictures we see are no longer captured moments, they're created moments for display purposes (waddup awkward girl arm). Don't beat yourself up by comparing the way you feel with the pictures you see of other peoples' lives. They feel the same way you do, no matter how wonderful things look. #BLESS
