The Grass Is Not Greener


Have you ever told yourself lies about your marriage?

I know I have!

๐ŸOne lie, I've been guilty of thinking about is this: "they have it easy". Yup. Guilty as charged!

๐ŸThis lie is rooted in comparison. It says if I had or did x,y,z I'd be happy too! After all, who would want a private jet? I could fly anytime I want and would never have to deal with airport security again.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

๐ŸWhen I think with this lie, I begin to fill in the gaps with fairy tail facts. I imagine that there is happiness and joy because of x, y, z. But is that true? How did I make my assumption? What if there isn't happiness at all?

๐Ÿ™ŒWhen I ask myself these questions, it snaps me back into reality. The reality that I don't have all the facts. The reality that I don't need to know; its none of my business. The reality that we cannot believe everything we see on social media.

๐Ÿ™ŒWhat if we choose gratitude for our blessings instead of looking at what we do not have?
