dont compare your behind the scenes

The takeaway from Steven Furtick’s quote well-known quote,  “The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel,” is, quite simple. “Don’t compare your behind the scenes to someone else’s highlight reel.”

Ironically, I saw this quote on Instagram, the site The New York Times called “the highest achievement yet in social-media voyeurism,” in “The Agony of Instagram.” Irony or not, it was a great reminder.
