A lot goes on in the background of people’s lives that you do not see.

Insecurities, setbacks, emotions…

Remember that when you compare yourself to others.

You’re comparing yourself to the image, not the lived experience.

And that I do not recommend.

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good.
- Romans 12:9

They say you don’t get over someone until you find someone or something better. As humans, we don’t deal well with emptiness. Any empty space must be filled. Immediately. The pain of emptiness is too strong. It compels the victim to fill that place. A single moment with that empty spot causes excruciating pain. That’s why we run from distraction to distraction—and from attachment to attachment.
