When I log into my Facebook account, I always meet with hundreds of selfies. These selfies mostly strive to portray the illusion that the selfie-takers are living a happy and luxurious life.
Three years ago, before I started reading and watching self-help material, this selfie shit used to stress me. It even resulted in me succumbing to depression because I thought I was the only one with problems. Besides this, the selfies made me believe that my ‘friends’ were making progress and I was the only one left behind. I was broke, and nothing seemed to work out for me. All my relationships sucked, and the only thing that gave me hope was prayer.
However, today, these selfies never stress me anymore. It’s not because I stumbled upon millions of dollars, but it’s because I realized that they are pieces of shit. It dawned on me that some of these people who take ‘happy’ photos of them in luxurious places were as broke as hell. Besides this, some were even more depressed than I was, and their insecurities made them post ‘selfies’ that showed how good their lives were. In addition, I realized that they posted selfies because they were self-obsessed attention seekers, who used selfies to get validation and praise.
When I started my blogging career, some of these individuals came to me for advice on how they can deal with depression. Others thought blogging had made me rich and they continually asked me to lend them money. I then realized that a good number of the ‘selfie-takers’ had larger problems than me and the selfie shit helped them create an illusion of everlasting happiness and prosperity.
Let me tell you a big secret. There is nothing like everlasting happiness in this physical world. Life is full of difficulties because they make us grow into our full potential. Therefore, don’t think that some people are problem- free just because they continuously post silly photos of them having fun on social media.
Posting a selfie is not a bad thing. I am just uncomfortable with individuals who continuously post selfies with the primary aim of showing people how they are always joyous and rich.
I am concerned because this selfie nonsense has made some individuals succumb to depression. People compare their lives with others based on selfies, and they believe they are the only individuals with problems.
Little do they know that most of the ‘rich-selfie-takers’ are not wealthy. I have successful friends such as Dan Western (Founder of Wealthy Gorilla) and Josiah Humphrey (CEO at Appster) on Facebook, and I have never seen them posting silly selfies that try to show the world how rich they are. These individuals are always working hard and they don’t have time to show off their wealth.
Therefore, never be fooled by the selfies. Ignore them at all costs, and don’t let them drain your energy. Just focus on your progress and realize that many individuals who show off on social media are neither happy nor wealthy.
And to all the people who constantly show off on social media, my main advice to you is that you SHOW UP, don’t just SHOW OFF. HOPE I SEE YOU AT THE TOP BECAUSE I WILL PERSIST UNTIL I SUCCEED.
Anyway, what’s your say on this selfie nonsense? Feel free to air your opinion in the comment box below.

The True Meaning of ‘Love Yourself’
Many spiritual and personal development teachers advise us to love ourselves because self-love increases happiness levels, boosts self-esteem, improves physical health, and so on. However, although we know the importance of loving ourselves, most of us don’t know the meaning of self-love. For this reason, today I’ll share with you the true meaning of loving thyself.
Loving yourself means taking good care of your body through exercising and eating healthy foods. It also means loving your physical features and thanking life for them because they make you a unique individual.
Besides this, loving yourself means taking care of your mental state by ensuring that you only think higher thoughts because they provide you with a sense of inner peace. It also means eliminating suppressed negative energies within you by loving others and striving to forgive those who wrong you.
Moreover, loving yourself means forgiving yourself for all the bad things you did in the past and understanding that everyone, including you, makes mistakes. It means avoiding being harsh at yourself for failing to meet your expectations and understanding that life always gives people second chances. Loving thyself also means accepting whatever happened in the past and avoiding to blame yourself for your failures.
Furthermore, loving yourself means doing what you love, and avoiding jobs that hurt your physical, mental, and spiritual health. It also means doing what makes you happy, and what ensures that you have a prosperous future.
Additionally, you love yourself when you put yourself first by unfriending time wasters, walking out of abusive relationships, and avoiding people who never add value to your life. You also love yourself when you focus on your strengths and ignore your weaknesses.
Moreover, you love yourself when you take care of your mind by meditating, reading inspiring books, and avoiding negative people. And lastly, you love yourself when you take care of your soul by expanding your consciousness and being virtuous.
In summary, loving yourself means taking good care of your mind, soul, and body, and ensuring that everything

Why We Are Our Biggest Enemy
Most of us blame life for our misfortunes and frustrations. We think we are unhappy because life is not on our side. Little do we know that we are our biggest enemy because we are frustrated although life blessed us with wonderful things that ensure we live well.
For instance, life blessed us with imagination so that we become creative and use our creativity to improve our lives. However, we use imagination to visualize the worst possible outcome. Moreover, it gave us memory to remember and correct our past mistakes, but we use it to relive the bad things that happened in the past.
Besides this, life gave us an intuitive voice to guide us, but we let our egos direct us towards unfulfilling lives. It also provided us with the stars to please our eyes and beautiful views to relax the mind, but we find these wonders useless.
Additionally, life gave us a mind with powerful magnetic forces to help us attract what we mostly dwell on, but we dwell on negative thoughts and therefore, attract negative events in our lives. It also created many human beings so that we support and love each other, but we are selfish, and we wish bad things upon others. We then attract these terrible things because wishing bad things for others lowers our vibration.
Furthermore, life provides us with endless opportunities. It ensures that we get whatever we want so long as we are courageous and risk-taking. However, we are afraid to take risks, and we complain when we don’t move forward. It gave us talents that can employ us and make us reach our full potentials, but we choose to work in boring jobs that never lead to growth.
Life is good. It gave us amazing bodies to enable us to experience the physical world fully. But we hate our bodies because we compare them with unrealistic bodies the media shows us. We also destroy our bodies by eating unhealthy foods, and we blame God for giving us a bad body and making us prone to diseases.
Furthermore, life gave us a self-healing body that naturally gets rids of toxins, and medicinal plants that treat various diseases, but we invest in pharmaceutical drugs that only eliminate the symptoms of our illnesses. We complain when we can’t access health care yet there are many affordable traditional treatment methods that can completely eradicate our ailments.
We are never thankful to Infinite Intelligence for allowing us to experience life in a physical realm. Moreover, we don’t live fully by living moment by moment and trusting that everything will fall into place. Lastly, we never meditate on life and realize how life always ensures that we live well. For this reason, we are our biggest enemy.
