“Understand That Those Who Try So Hard To Show You How Happy They Are, Most Probably Are Very Sad And Depressed. Don’t Envy Anyone” – Ruth Kadiri


via instagram.com/ruthkadiri

 Many people have always been concerned about if they are Keeping up with Joneses, but with the rise and reach of social media, the to compare ourselves with other people has even become worse. Many women are constantly depressed and anxious because they think their friends are doing better than them based on what they see on social media.

Nollywood actor, Ruth Kadiri thinks this trend is worrying and encourages people to live on their own terms.

She said,

The generation we're in! The Instagram life doesn't add up with the reality. People are waking up sad because they think others are doing better than them. Those who seem to have a little, Deliberately oppressing their followers and claiming HATERS. And girls doing shit Just to stay relevant on social media. A platform where happiness is faked 💯. Nobody want to go through the process but we all want the glory. Easy my darlings! easy. Understand that those who try so hard to show u how happy they are. Most probably are very sad and depressed. Live ur life like its golden and don't envy anyone. Forget about how glittery the car looks the engine is what matters and that's the part we never get to see. Morning world.
