Here are some things to tell yourself when you feel that way:
1. People are not (or shouldn’t be) putting their “dirty laundry” on social media so you’re not seeing everything!
2. Lots of people are not responsible with their money. Many Americans live their lives on credit (I used to). So they may seem like they have everything but they probably they don’t really own all of it. Think about this they could be paying for that amazing vacation for the next ten years!
3. You have positive things going on in your family, the bad just might be making it hard to see. For example, maybe you kid never earns anything higher than a C but is an amazing artist. Why not post a picture of something she created? Or maybe your kid is awesome with computers, did something kind, or is able to get up every morning and get ready for school with no problems. These are all brag-worthy on social media.
4. Don’t use social media if it makes you negative towards yourself and your family. It is not vital to life (as much as it seems to be).
This all applies to your kids too!!!
