People think my life is incredible. When they see happy pictures and words on Facebook, they simply assume you’re a happy person.
My friends snort and dismiss any possibility of being depressed if I tell them I had a tough week; and when I say I’ve hit rock bottom, they say I should get over it.
People assume you have no problems if you don’t write about any, that you don’t have a care or responsibility in the world if you don’t Tweet it or have pictures to prove it.
How one sided social media can be.
I just want to clarify and confess that as much as I can try, I’m not perfect and I indeed have more than my fair share of frequent pressures. The reason why you probably don’t hear about any of them is because I try not to bother my friends with my complaints, and I try to stay away from sharing it on social media. Everytime I’m frustrated, I pick up the phone and call my parents and unto my God, instead of logging onto Facebook.
Social media can be one-sided, but God is on our side.
Prayer solves more than Facebook statuses could, and the weak is made strong in my Saviour’s love.
Everyday I have to remember that I’ve been rescued and set free, and if there’s no other reason to be happy, then the least I have is this – Which is bigger than anything I can ask for.
Feelings change. But situations don’t.
So I sit down, take a deep breath, say a prayer, stand up and carry on. And through this, I’ve learnt to find happiness in my unhappiness.
Try it this week! Remember, if u have any problems, go to God and your family – not to Facebook.
