We all need a little help now and then.
PSA. No one's life is perfect. Don't let anyones Instagram, Snapchat or Facebook posts convince you otherwise. No matter how on point or unreal their photos are, there's always more to the story.
Social media is scary that way. You're just scrolling through your Instagram feed thinking that your weekend is going well and all is great in your life, when suddenly you see Becky with the good hair on the beach in Turks and Caicos looking killer in her teeny yellow polka dot bikini. Naturally, you feel jealous.
But when she gets back, you find out she's got a bad case of sun poisoning (you're only human if you feel justice has been served).
A week later your dog dies, you get a promotion at work, your parents sell your childhood home and your boyfriend surprises you with a romantic getaway to Napa for your anniversary.
Is it cheesy to say that life really is like one big roller coaster?
The scariest parts are always at the beginning when something is new. When you're creeping up that first hill, you have butterflies in your stomach because you don't know what's waiting for you on the other side. Then — BAM! — it's down you go. Up and down over and over again until it's over. It all happened so fast you wish you hadn't have closed your eyes for some parts. Life, man.
It's rough, messy and complicated at times. Having an optimistic attitude and some good advice is the only way you'll make it through.
