Don't Envy Other People's Lives

So, I have seen other people Look at other people's lives and say stuff like, "Couples goals",

Role model...

Yeah, I want to be like this person or I want to be like that person.

Now, I'm not saying it's wrong to have role models or people we want to be like when we grow up.

Maybe they're doing stuff we really want to do or something.

I also have a role model

I have people I look up to.

I have people I want to be like

I have people that push me to do what I do

I have people who push me beyond my limits.

But...

But you should never forget that people only show you the part of themselves they want you to see.

They never put out the part they don't want you to see.

A person may be different things online and offline, but the part they put online is the good or better part of them which of course is fine.

But you should also endeavour to pay attention to the part they are not showing you.

Making that person the sole of your life is simply like saying you are accepting both the bad side and good side of them.

Never aspire to be just anyone on social media.

Admire them but do not say you want to be like them.

Do not envy them, because you don't know wah is gohen on.

You don't know what they did to where they are

So be yourself.
Aspire for greatness because you are greatness.
