“No such thing as a life that’s better than yours. No such thing, no such thing.”
It is so easy to lose yourself in a society where social media is constantly telling us who we should strive to be while also reminding us that we are simply not there yet. Often times we let others set the precedent for our lives just so we can feel accepted in the world whether it’s on twitter, instagram, facebook or in real life. Understanding that likes and comments are just likes and comments can save you a world of trouble. Take these quotes from Love Yourz by J. Cole for example:
“It’s beauty in the struggle, ugliness in the success. Hear my words or listen to my signal of distress. I grew up in the city and sometimes we had less, compared to some friends down the block man we were blessed!”
Looking from the outside in you can easily become envious or sad when in reality you don’t know what is going on in other peoples lives. They could be dressed in the finest clothing while having low self esteem and a poor outlook on life. Dwelling on what you do and don’t have can hinder your growth as a person because you’re spending so much time on the bad in your life when there is so much good. I know that this will sound cliche but it needs to be said. Love yourself! – don’t let your followers, friends and family tell you that you aren’t enough.
“..you ain’t ever gone be happy till you love yours”
