What percentage of your social media contacts seem like they have their lives figured out?
Now what would this percentage be for your friends or colleagues? What is that same percentage for your relatives and close family members?
A pattern soon starts to emerge – the lesser we know somebody, the more sorted their lives seem to us. Our social media connections seem to have it much better than members of our family. But on the flipside, our perfect social media contacts are also other people’s imperfect relatives, friends and colleagues.
Everybody’s life is broken in some way or the other. We aren’t alone.
