A dear friend recently gave me the most hilarious birthday card. It reminded me of how often we compare ourselves with others on social media.
This friend has seen me at my lowest. He was one of my few confidantes when my marriage was dissolving. He has heard more than one cautionary tale about parenting a headstrong teenager. He is no stranger to hearing my work challenges. In short, my friend KNOWS me. And he knows that my social media presence doesn't even come close to showing how my life really is. Everything is not always sunshine and roses for this particular Rose.
