Somebody needs to rewrite this article, but for homeschooling blogs instead of Pinterest wedding boards.
It might have seemed like my Pinterest Wedding was coming along nicely, but in reality the anxiety was mounting....You see, every time I planned a small detail, I would see someone do it better, with more whimsy, on Pinterest.
A few weeks before my wedding date, I’d had enough of being out-twee-ed and out whimsy-ed. I developed acute bridal apathy and quit Pinterest in a huff. After going cold turkey, I realized that Pinterest only shows us the good side of weddings. It shows a glowing example of how weddings can look when everything goes as planned. In reality? It rained all day leading up to our ceremony.
The piece is pretty amusing, and the analogy works. Don't spend too much time looking at other people's ideas. If you have to seek inspiration from other people, use what you learn from them to become a better *you,* not to compare yourself to other people's best-projected version of themselves.
