Contradicting Thoughts: social media envy by Chocoreaper Contradicting Thoughts: social media envy by Chocoreaper
When the social media envy gets to you, you tried fighting it off by feeling good about yourself and at the same time you wanna know if others envy you as well so you ask them about it, but you're afraid you'll come across as prideful to them for thinking you're this enviable being that everyone wants to be. I think about this a lot & sometimes i feel bad for envying others & considered switching sides but lol my low self-esteem doesnt want me to see myself as enviable.

Im probably gonna make a series out of this.

I hate that! But to me , when that happens, it kind of makes me want to change or do something new. People look good and have great things but so can you if you work hard enough even if it takes awhile. You also have to think too, a lot of people have social media envy even the people you envy, envy other people too.

The last thing you mentioned, I always keep that in mind that people you envy on social media or even everywhere also envy other people, & even yourself. It goes both ways n we know it's wrong to feel that way but we can't help it. Turning envy into positivity/motivation to try and do better & trying to feel good about yourself seems the best way to deal with it.
