First of all, no, that picture has nothing to do with the post, but if the internetz will insist on giving a girl photo filters, I’m damn sure gonna use them. Right, on with the topic of the day…
We all do it, from an early age, so much so that sometimes we barely even notice we’re doing it. It almost can’t be helped. We compare our lives with that of our peers. Social media, of course, heightens that. People and their great lives are in our faces online, flaunting it. It’s hard not to absorb it, internalise it and start questioning every little thing you’re doing, why your life isn’t better, what you’re doing wrong. I was chatting with one of my good friends the other night and she reminded me that comparison is a killer. And she’s damn right.

It’d be nice to think that school time playground antics can be left there, but it seems sometimes as we grow older, certain things remain. We so often associate peer pressure with being a teenager and falling in line, doing things we don’t want to do, just to impress our friends. This, of course, is written off as the ignorance of youth, us not yet having developed the skills to stand firm in our decisions. But now that we’re adults, we should be able to do that, right?
