Your life is great, but for some reason you’re really good at finding problems with it. If you associate yourself with any of the issues below, please, for the good of humanity, just stop. Focusing on things that don’t matter is going to be the downfall of this generation.
1. Getting frustrated that social media is too boring/annoying/distracting
The Internet is full of smart shit. Start spending your screen time using it to expand your mind and your understanding of the world, not stalking the girl in all the photos with some guy you haven’t heard from in two weeks.
2. Making excuses to not workout or eat better, then criticizing your body, all the while paying $180 a month for an Equinox membership
I can’t even..
3. Comparing yourself to others
Hello, everyone else is as neurotic as you, so stop thinking everything is so perfect for them, because they have their own issues. Be thankful for what is good in your life, and know that nothing will ever be exactly how you planned it to be when you were thirteen.
4. Stressing that your birth control is making you fat
You know what will actually make you fat? A baby. So shut it.
5. Complaining about your boss/job/co-workers
For Gods sake, you have a job, be thankful. If it’s that bad, change it. But for now, be aware you have a stable source of income in one of the worst economic times in all of history.
6. Whining that you’re always broke
You know what broke is? Broke is having to sell your car, move to Koreatown, and work three jobs just to pay your bills. It does not involve figuring out ways to get guys to buy you drinks at the bar and eating Pinkberry three times a week.
7. Turning 27 and saying how old you feel
Age is a state of mind. You can be grumpy and tired at 22, or young at 95 with a vibrant smile and a sparkle in your eye. Saying you feel old is just a weird way of saying how you don’t feel you’ve done enough with your life. Truthfully, life is long and accomplishments take time. So be gentle on yourself. And if that is the case, start doing something meaningful that grows your spirit, and your mind. You won’t feel old for long!
