I don't think anyone has a perfect life....as they say, the grass is always greener...they may be happier that one day, but something is probably also wearing on their shoulders

Anna, I've been watching your videos recently and just, GIRL, you say everything I need to hear. I have perfectionism, anxiety, and chronic depression (as a result of the perfectionism) and I get so into the spiral of feeling bad about my life and thinking how others are just being happy cause that's what it looks like. But I've got to learn to stop myself. I've got to get so involved with my own life that I don't have time to think about how others are so much happier than me and better than me. Thanks for doing what you do, Anna.

The key is knowing what you actually want and taking action toward making it happen. ❤ Instead of focusing on comparing yourself... instead take a step back and ask yourself why you feel that envy... Like, why do you feel envious of someone traveling? Usually because you want to travel somewhere, right? So set a goal around that and take actions in your life that will help you work toward that goal. If it's not something you want enough to work toward, then you don't really want it, you just have FOMO. Once you recognize that you can try to shift your perspective to a more positive one, like saying out loud to yourself that you're happy for your friends instead of miserable that you're not doing what they're doing. Anyone can do almost anything, we just have to make it a high enough priority that we push ourselves toward it through the actions we take every day. It can be really easy to forget that... but the thing(s) we want most will be the thing(s) we are putting at the top of mind and actually doing... For example, right now I want to watch UZvid videos more than I want to write blog posts or plan out a livestream for my Facebook group. In 20 minutes that could be completely different, but this is where I'm at right now so that's what I'm doing. It's okay to shift your priorities, as long as you keep track of them and don't let the things you really want sit on the backburner too long... For example, I really want to watch the rest of a series I'm watching on Netflix, but getting work done is a higher priority for me today because if I left myself go to Netflix I won't get any work done today. 🤣

Totally agree. This is was social media does to people. If you arent one of the people who are watching everyone else have more fun than you are someone posting every moment to prove to others have much fun youre having so you can be more like others that youve seen. I read somewhere that statistically most of your friends will have more friends than you too, its wierd but the way its explained made some sense. We are way to caught up in what other people do and everyones life will always seen more fun, especially when they are trying so hard to make it look thay way. Filters prove that dont they.

It's ok to admire someone that you want to emulate them, but you have no idea what kind of life the person on the other side of your screen is having. So yes, compare yourself to who you were yesterday, and incrementally improve into the future.

That’s so me - comparison hurts and is indeed a downward spiral. Even if I am spending time with actual people I might compare myself to them if they are a happy couple with a dog and a cool place. It’s good to keep busy but I want what they have too...

Same, but other people do it to me. Like, I’m not sad when I go on insta, my family compares me to other people to “show what I could be doing” and it hurts because I can’t PLAY THE GUITAR AND GO ON THE VIOCE AND LEARN 50 LANGUAGES AND READ EVERY BOOK ON THE FACE OF THIS EARTH and still be a teenager.
