Another installmentagainst (or toward) my bad mood--do you ever have this feeling when you surf Facebook profiles that other people have had all the fun in life and your life is remarkably boring and nondescript? I do. I surf and see so many fun pictures. Why is that?
I think it's several things. 1) Human principle--grass is greener on the other side of the fence 2) other people actually post cool pictures 3) necessarily preceding 2), other people also TAKE cool pictures of them doing cool things. Perhaps if I just smattered all the awesome pictures (assuming I have some) of my awesome life all over my awesome wall, I would not be consumed with a melancholy reminiscence (and yes, melancholy reminiscent jealousy) periodically. Also, I could post them online so other bored (read pathetic) people like myself could surf them and feel jealous.
Please don't read this. Don't tell anyone I wrote it.
One last principle. Listening to music is totally awesome. When I listen to good music, I feel like it's a soundtrack to my life. It makes me want to keep reading to see how my life turns out because I can relate to the main character. It makes me want to write my life down so somebody else can enjoy it. So really, what I could do to cure the jealousy is to combine these two opposite, possibly bizarre feelings to hopefully make me really happy and content with my own life as it is.
