Nota Bene

    Sometimes you climb out of bed and you think, I’m not going to make it, but you laugh inside – remembering all the times you’ve felt that way. (Charles Bukowski)   You’ve managed to roll out of bed yesterday. You can do it again.  #itgetsbetter Click To Tweet       ♥ Stace […]

What’s your type? I’m an INFJ: Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

 

extrovert (1)

Many times, I thought I understand the world better than I did yesterday. I thought if I did, it’ll help me to better relate to others, but I was fooling myself.

Now more than ever, it’s so easy to compare our lives with others. Like when your Facebook feed has just shown you a beautiful album of a friend who’s vacationing in Italy, or some celebrity’s just uploaded a stunning #iwokeuplikethis selfie on Instagram. Even though deep down we know most posts are heavily styled and, let’s face it, only about 10% of them are “real” snapshots of “real life”, we can’t help but see how few time, resources, and opportunities we have compared to those of our followings.
