Social media can be a great thing! I have made connections with some really amazing people, found support, encouragement, and inspiration, and that has been so great. . . But, social media can also be not so great! It can be so easy to waste hours looking through posts, and not get all that much done. It can also be a place of comparison, comparing your body, your success, your life to others. Which can very quickly lead to feeling down on yourself, and your goals, your body, your life...all of it! And that does not help you to believe in yourself and keep pushing when things seem impossible! . . I know that I have most definitely been guilty of playing the comparison game, and feeling not so good about myself and where I am at. Which is almost always followed up with a little bit of beating myself up, and a loss of that positive self believing mindset. I am not saying that social media is a bad thing, but as in life, you have to be careful of what you allow into your thoughts, and the people you surround yourself with. And remember that more often than not, social media is a highlight reel, not necessarily reality! . . So, unfollow accounts that don't fit you and your vibes, surround yourself with kind, and supportive people in life, and on social media. There is room for everyone to be successful, and happy no matter what that means for you, remember that! . . Don't let someone else's highlight reel deter you from you dreams, your purpose, or your passions!!
