As everyone scrolls through their reels in preparation to post their yearly highlights, some people won’t have much to glance at. But does this really mean that they’ve had a shitty year? Or that they have no worth, or nothing to be proud of? I don't think so.
The thing is, I truly believe that it doesn’t matter what your camera reel looks like - whether you’ve got images of flashy holidays and fancy cars or simply no pics at all, it is not a reflection of your year or life for that matter. Everyone is on their own journey and moving at their own pace, so try not to compare. Comparing your own progress (or lack thereof) to someone else’s is only going to get you down. So try keep your eye on your own journey. Embrace your flaws and any weirdness and quirks you may have, because hey lets face it we all weren't born Beyonce.
Whether you know it or not, you have already survived so much in life, and that is worth acknowledging. Not everyone comes out of their challenges and setbacks stronger and the fact that you did not let them defeat you is something to be proud of. Not everything in life is a movie but I do believe there is always something to sing about.
Your biggest win should be simply getting through the year because there are so many others that did not make it this far for various reasons. Whether you did it with a big smile on your face, tears streaming or a bit of both then give yourself a high fucking five. You made it. If only we all could post that feeling, then social media might be a different place.#NewYear #Gratitude #MentalHealth #Perspective
