Everyone on Instagram is Not Doing Better Than You

Before social media even became a concept, we’ve been experiencing FOMO. It’s why we keep up with the Joneses. It’s why we find ourselves heading to the same restaurant we saw someone rave about not too long ago. We just have to be a part of it.

4 Ways to Instantly Change Your Bad Mood

Are you feeling upset, angry, or depressed? Perhaps you’ve prayed about it, which you should. You bought out the Kleenex tissues and those old romance movies and listened to some of your favorite sad songs. And you cried about it. Now you’re walking around feeling down, thinking about that one person. You may be feeling disappointed because the job promotion you thought you’d get just didn’t end up working in your favor.
