Don't Believe The Hype

Updated: Jan 3, 2020


It’s so easy to get swept up in emotion.

Seeing what others are doing and comparing yourself

Believing that you are somehow inadequate, that you should be more successful, richer, happier, prettier

You should have more followers on social

You should be promoted

You should feel more fulfilled

Living that perfect lifestyle.

If everyone else's life is so great life, then why isn't yours?

As if to suggest there’s something wrong with you.

Well, I’ll tell you this, which may come as a surprise –

There is something wrong with you.

But this is the beauty of it – there is something wrong with everyone.

You’re not perfect and you probably never will be; and neither will anyone else.

What you’re seeing, what you’re assuming about others and about life is all an illusion

A distortion of reality; of the natural tendencies.

It's a manufactured hype, leading to a kind of hysteria
