So last night I went to dinner with my manager to celebrate some…recent successes and wins. And I remember being so incredibly happy. Just feeling overwhelming happiness. Because last year, I was not in a good place.
Right now, I’m unbelievably happy. I’m making a living doing what I love, I’m booking acting gigs, I just signed with a great talent agent, and I’m adding incredible people to my team that all believe in me and my potential. This is an incredible feeling. But that’s not exactly why I’m happy. You see, everyone on social media only shows you what they want you to see. You’re only seeing everyone’s highlight reel. Because the truth is, real life is not that exceptional or positive all the time and no one wants to publicly admit failure. So if you never see negative images from other people, you start to compare your average life to someone’s highlight reel. That’s toxic and self-destructive. But why?
