Dear Mom Spark,

I know this sounds silly, but I feel like my life is so uninteresting compared to my Facebook friends.  I see photos of my friends going on trips, blogging events, family outings, etc. and it honestly makes me feel a little jealous.  It’s not like I don’t have a “life” with my own friends and family, but it just doesn’t seem as glamourous or exciting.  I have thought about deleting my Facebook account because I seem so consumed with what everyone else is doing that it makes me feel bad about myself.  I wish I didn’t feel this way, but I do. I would love some advice on how to deal with this.

Thank you for your help,
