There are many problems associated with lucky girl syndrome, including the validity of the concept, the window dressing of privilege, and its lack of awareness that “negative” experiences are a part of life. The media and TikTokers have debated all sides without giving up. Similar to many spiritual practices or just life concepts, it all comes down to interpretation. Everyone processes information differently and connects with different aspects of a trend. Without continuing these debates, spirituality does not come in one size fits all, and opposing views are expected.
But the problem that seems untouched is how videos can trigger lucky girl syndrome.
While we send nothing but positive vibes to the luckiest girls on the internet, we’ll pass over people’s personal luck mantras. Lucky Girl Syndrome is a personal exclamation of connection with your higher self. Practice is a natural confirmation of personal goals and dreams. The “proof” that these mantras work, such as new career opportunities, financial boosts, or new relationship developments, is deeply personal. Sharing them online opens up the possibility of bragging rights, even if that’s not the creator’s intention.
Reducing trigger content is an ongoing, and personal, problem with social media. Lucky Girl Syndrome seems to have hit the sweet spot of the problem. Connecting with the concern of privilege or hearing about someone else’s “luck” can lead to a spiral of overthinking. Achieving the opposite of the theory itself. It’s hard to balance these triggering feelings without feeling like we’re discrediting the success of others. We can remember that everyone is on their own timeline, but sometimes knowing isn’t always enough. Bucking the trend may be the best way to use lucky girl syndrome to our advantage.
And you’re still a lucky girl if you practice affirmations in a different way.
It is possible to create your own train of positive thoughts without following the same wording and process as the girls on TikTok. Posting your mantras on social media will not alter the ways of the universe. Getting out of the root of the tendency itself…it is the power of our mind that produces healthy reactions. Creating a higher frequency is a mindset, not video content.
How do we connect with our higher self without feeling triggered?
Using positive thinking in the present moment. While self-confidence is important, we see real change in ourselves when we consciously change the way we present ourselves in conversations with ourselves and others. For example, if you have a date, instead of speaking negatively, say that you are afraid of it, change your mindset to be optimistic. Instead, tell your friends that you’re excited to meet someone new and accept whatever results come your way.
We can’t prevent “negative” things from happening by claiming they won’t. Unfortunately, we can’t see the positive without some negative. It’s science. It is spirituality. Lessons do not grow from constant light. Shadow is necessary for reflection. We should feel lucky to experience both sides of the spectrum. Lucky Girl Syndrome shouldn’t be about using a positive mindset just to attract certain results. Developing a positive thought pattern prepares us to challenge life’s moments, process them, and see the goodness that grows out of the “negatives.”
