"Dreaming Window..." A friendly reminder not to judge your life, pursuits and freedom against anyone else. Social media is either healthy or toxic, depending on our awareness and how we choose to interact with it and let it effect us. Remember, when you're scrolling your phone, you're looking at everyone else's HIGHLIGHTS reel. You're not seeing the behind the scenes downers. Don't believe the myth of this "Always happy, always inspired", it's bullshit. Life is ups and downs, embrace them both, for we have no choice. <3 friends & family. Feel free to share this image and words if you think it will help others with perspective.
