A little rant

Just surfing Facebook, and feeling rather resentful.

All of these girls with their parent-approved boyfriends, with their perfect academic records, with their fun University experiences.

Why couldn't I be one of them? How do I compete with that?

You do not need to compete with anyone! Remember people put on Facebook what they are willing to share with all the people they want to like or love them. Every person has issues and every person is unique. You are no exception. Blessings:) You are you and I like you just as you are and that is that!

tell me about it. i want to smite them. but life goes on and so long as we keep smiling (and hula hooping) life can be good. let's face it, at least our lives are a bit more interesting!

you keep being you and celebrate that...i know it is hard not to compare...even at my age I still can get jealous of my peers but I do celebrate who God has created me to be!

Karyne... we will always compare ourselves to others I guess, but am well on my way to discovering exactly who I am. Can't compare what I don't know!

lots of people out there will be very superficial and always present an image to the world...
I am yet to find a family without 'issues' - they are always sugar coating things, but life is real and raw even if we pretend otherwise.

Parent approved boyfriends...;) Hmmmm I never wanted one of them, way too boring for me!!

You're completely right Katie, of course ;) I just have little moments of crisis, not because I'm bipolar... just because I'm human.

William is the best ever, that's my opinion, and in our relationship that's the most important thing!
