Comparison kills your ego, self-worth, confidence, peace, and goals.
Constant scrolling on instagram to recieve unwarranted and unnecessary information and updates on people’s lives you don’t talk to at all or probably will never see, and don’t really care about is weird. What is the purpose of it, if we really think about it? Is seeing other peoples lives, celebrities included, is it making us happier?
I can say I compared myself in feeling that other people have it together more than I do. And at some point in their life, they knew exactly what they wanted to be and went for it. As I was steadily worked to figure it out and I honestly used to let anything deter me from my path, goals, and dreams. I can blame marriage and moving and kids, but I tried started and stopped so many things, that in the end of the day I can only blame myself. I had to learn to be strong in my conviction of who I am and what I have to offer. Why I allowed anyone’s idea or suggestion deter me and second guess myself is the most dreadful thing I could’ve done.
My suggestion is
- to sit quietly
- listen to yourself
- imagine and write your dreams out
- don’t stop until you achieve them.
- love yourself first
If you loved and cared about yourself, why would you allow yourself to suffer and be unhappy? If you have the power to change it, why wouldn’t you. To love yourself is to truly consider yourself, your goals, and assess if situations your are in your best interest.
