I found myself becoming upset last night when viewing some Instagram pictures of a few folks. I started questioning why not me? Why did he pick her over me?
Or even the guy you overlooked at some point. You see him doing well and traveling all over the world and think to yourself-did I miss the boat?
How am I still single? (I know the answer to that btw-I pick the wrong guys. I acknowledge that).
Try not to be so hard on yourself!
1. You never know what they may be going through.
2. You can’t miss what is not yours to keep.
3. You know that social media is not always an accurate depiction of ones relationship. In fact-I've found that the happier they appear to be, the more turmoil is happening behind the scenes.
It’s hard, I know and the best way to get rid of those feelings is to stop looking at her pictures. Unfollow or block from your viewing to make things easier. If you have friends that know them, unfortunately you will have to let them know not to bring them up. If they continue to do so, dissociated yourself from them.
One thing I’ve learned was that I cannot be bitter or wish bad on someone because things did not go my way. Those feelings will only block your blessings.
Wish them well and move on to the life that was designed for you.
P.S. One day you will look back and understand why things didn't work out the way you wanted it to.
