Feeling like a loser

Is it just me, or does it seem like 99% of all the bloggers out there live really stinking perfect lives?

Great houses that are furnished impeccably, beautiful figures clothed in a gorgeous wardrobe, tons of friends and social activities, magical super-husbands that do everything just right, huge bank accounts that never run low, no real worries in life whatsoever, except for the relatively little ones they tell us about from time to time (under the guise of ' life isn't so perfect after all!') things that frankly I wish we're MY only problems.

Is this a true sample of 'real' life out there, I wonder? Is my life truly the exception to the rule that most of America has their crap together, or is it just that the mainstream blogs are the ones that people flock to, simply because they DO seem to have it all together? I don't know...just thinking out loud, as usual. ;)


  1. Average debt per American household: $10,000.
    50% of marriages in the U.S. end in divorce.
    2/3 of us are overweight or obese.

    Everyone does not have it all together.
    Do you feel better now;-)

  2. Honestly? Not really. (I'm partaking in a bit of a pity party, it seems!)

    But thanks for trying! ;)

  3. Well i live in an apartment, hubby is on disability and we are definitely not swimming in money!!
    I've suffered from depression and early heart disease.
    So no i don't think most of us are perfect.

  4. Hahahahahaha. I feel the same way a lot of times. I think a lot of us just don't blog about the bad stuff (or very little anyway). Believe me, my life is not perfect. But I must admit that I keep a positive attitude knowing that someday I will be able to enjoy a happy, peaceful, everlasting life here on earth without all the junk. (Revelation 21:3,4; Psalm 37: 10, 11, 29; John 17:3) Got to have faith to keep running the race. :) Hugs!

  5. You must be reading the wrong blogs! I don't bother with that type. Maybe mine comes across that way sometimes? Not intentionally, that's for sure.

  6. I see what you're talking about. I'd hate to pay their credit card bills! I live in a small house and heaven forbid, I do not have granite countertops. I don't even have a built-in dishwasher. I share many of my struggles, but some are too personal that involve others. I never share complains about my husband because I sure wouldn't like it if he blogged about me in that way--but I'll tell you I don't have a perfect marriage. We love each other, but still have our issues.

    We only know what people tell us. You just have to remember a lot of blogs that go into such great "wow, I'm so great" spiels are fictional to a certain degree.
