I love movies.
I love actually going to the movies. The fresh popcorn, the brand-new trailers, and the fact that I can just escape for two hours.
But you know the one thing about movie trailers that gets me – the actual trailer. It always gets me to the movie. And think about it, how many bad movie trailers have you seen? Probably none. Maybe one in your lifetime?
For the most part, the movie trailers are great. And then you go to the movie, and the movie sucks. It sucks so much that you wonder why you ever came to see it. This is because we believe the movie trailer was as good as the actual movie.
Now, how does that relate to you today? Just look at your social media feed. Take note of yourself while scrolling other people’s pages, other people’s pictures. Have you ever felt a slight bit of jealousy? Have ever felt disappointment because you learned about something regarding a friend on Facebook instead of from your friend?
There’s all types of emotions that our social media feeds generate in us. And a lot of them are disappointment, envy, and comparison. Really, all of our social feeds are, are movie trailers.
