Blog #2 “milk and honey”
what terrifies me most is how we foam at the mouth with envy when others succeed but sigh in relief when they are failing
our struggle to celebrate each other is what’s proven most difficult in being human
As a society, we are so focused on being more talented and successful and beautiful than everyone else around us. Pure jealousy and envy stems from someone else’s success. Scrolling through social media and thinking to yourself “I wish I was that pretty,” or “I want to be that skinny.” Listening to people boast about their good grades and how popular they are and how many parties they go to. We shouldn’t be so focused on wishing and wanting what others have. Work hard and dedicate yourself to what you love and what you want to be as a person. Stop putting yourself down just because you don’t have what everyone else has. Stop following the new trend. Be yourself. Be unique. Stand out from the crowd. Stop the jealousy and hatred and celebrate the successes of others. Be pleased for someone else. Lift up the veil of negativity. Allow yourself to be satisfied with what you have and don’t have because being your best you is what truly matters. So stop staring at your phone and scrolling through everyone else’s lives, get up off your ass, and do something that makes you happy.
