The more and more research I do on health,
the more warnings I come across about smart phones,
well facebook in particular.
See something a lot of us can be guilty of
is that we compare our ‘behind the scenes’
to other peoples highlights.
And where we tend to this most
is when we’re scrolling through that news feed,
that’s full of our “friends” pictured all dolled up
in their best gear and full of smiles.
Let’s not forget the ones that are checked in
having the most awesome time ever.
Nothing really wrong with this
(although some of these check-ins can wreck your head)
but nowhere on the news feed
does it mention about their insecurities or troubles.
And when you’re having a shit day
this is the last thing you probably need to looking at.
But because the smartphone can be so hard
to put down we can’t help ourselves.
And as a result,
we put ourselves in even worse humour
looking at this sh#t.
Kinda f#cked up when you think about it.
But I know speaking from personal experience
it’s something I’m guilty of doing regularly
despite my best intentions.
So if you find yourself doing the same thing
just remember that people’s Facebook life
tends to only include the highlights of their real life
for everyone to see.
And if you’re a pissed off bloke
that hates how you look
this will just make you feel worse.
But like anything that pisses us off
you do have a choice in how you react to it.
You can let it depress you even more
go into your shell and feel sorry for yourself.
Or, you can use it as fuel for the f#cking fire.
Put the smart phone down
get up off your arse
and make a change.
So that, you can create some of your own highlights.
