Oh hey, its Monday! Tell me, what's the first thing you did this morning? If it was check your phone, and do some mindless scrolling through your social media then this Monday Motivation is for you today! I'm back again with A Seat at the Table Podcast and this week's episode focuses on social media and constant comparison of yourself to others.
This week the cast opens up about personal experiences and struggles with insecurities that social media can bring out in us. Social media has become something like an epidemic, it went from being something fun to pass time to this big competition to make money and one up everyone on life. Its ability to make you feel inferior or as if whatever you're doing must not be right, is annoying for sure. I feel like most of the time the things we end up feeling envious about on social media aren't even things that we personally value, but we've conditioned ourselves to care about.
I see a lot of my followers doing social media cleanses, where they deactivate their accounts and take time to refocus themselves. I'm all for that, if that's what it takes to assess the things that you find value in and bring meaning back to your life. We all have a purpose and I feel like we miss a lot of valuable moments when we're busy trying to capture the moment. What really matters is what we're doing when we're present, and not posting or posing.
In the podcast they say that you do a disservice to God by dwelling on what other people have, keeping up with the Jones' and walking in someone else's calling. Live in the moment and stop comparing yourself to others, because you're the one. The world needs what you have.💋
