Don't Compare Your Animal Crossing Town to Other Ones

Apparently, a game where the main focus is to catch bugs, fish, plant flowers, decorate, and otherwise chill is making people stress because social media has them distraught how their town looks compared to other people. Yes, "Animal Crossing: New Horizons," is a great game and the whole point is to make a nice little town on a deserted island for yourself and some humanoid animals. However, because it is now easier to visit a friend's house or you can simply go on Twitter and see some amazing creations, it makes some people go into a tailspin of self-doubt when they consider how their house/clothing designs/flower setup looks against other people's works.

It's okay, seriously. Just make your own little town and don't freak out if your house looks like a mish-mash of 5 different decorating styles, your flowers lack any fencing, the museum in your town has little donations, or all the fruit trees are strewn about your island as opposed to being planted in a tidy orchard. The point of this, "Animal Crossing," game and any other is to just enjoy yourself. My town is pretty messy, but I like it. It's mine and I have tended to its weeds, caught its small museum collection, and built my home's weird array of furniture and decorations. I'm proud of it, regardless of what I see on Twitter or how amazing the islands of some of my friends are when I visit. Just relax, people.
