Just because everyone; laughs on divorces, rebels religious events, judges morality, becomes god, hates everything, wants to be supreme – doesn’t mean you to be “shallow” too.
You can be different. And to be different, you don’t have to say something stupid to get noticed on social media.
You don’t have to be a part of something running “hot” in news just because everyone does.
You don’t have to ridicule something or someone to look cool or educated in your circle.
You don’t have to go watch a movie in a cinema since most of your friends watched.
You don’t have to feel depressed if you see others having fun.
AND if you feel same way “alot”, have a break for few days from social media. Talk to people personally. Everything you see on social media about someone doesn’t entirely represent their lives. Pains, struggles, hardships, embarrassments & failures are rarely seen.
Understanding this feeling is important so we may find ways to tackle it and live happier lives. And yes, next time you see someone unlocking an achievement or having fun, say MashAllah and say a small prayer for them…
“May they have more InshAllah”
