34 unmarried no kids

I’m 34 years old, unmarried and no kids. Too often, I scroll through Instagram and look at the endless women who are pregnant or have beautiful families. Trying to conceive for over a year and a half and seeing other people’s “haves” on the internet often makes me feel my “have nots” to an extreme. 

With this being said, it is important for me and for all of us to realize that many of the very same people we are envious of, may scroll through our own Instagram and feel like they are “not enough” because of things we do or have in our lives right now. The grass is always greener.

Why is it that no matter what we have, we are still comparing ourselves to others and often feel as though we are enough? 

Instead of concentrating on the negatives and unmet goals in our lives, I have made a decision to celebrate what I DO have and work on moving forward with the things that I want. 

What are your thoughts on social media and comparing ourselves to others and what are some tips on how are all able to work through feeling enough? Leave a comment in the comment section
