I’m not one that compares myself to those around me. I always think “each to their own”. 🤷🏻♀️ I never wish I had what someone else had. I was like that when I was a very young child 👧🏻, wishing I had a stable family life. But I grew up and am no longer a child. I’m an adult who lives my own life and doesn’t care what anyone else does. Nor do I care what anyone thinks about what I do. 💁🏻♀️
Comparing your life to others will only bring jealousy and sadness into your life.😣 Making comparisons is also a very obvious sign of your own insecurities. I know because I’ve been on the receiving end of it, too many times. I’ve had women come up to me, that I had never met before, to tell me that I was beautiful and then tell me they hate me in a very serious tone and then walk away. More than once. 😟 As if that’s appropriate?! (Remember, back-handed compliments are not compliments at all and are actually incredibly hurtful.🥺)
You’re an adult who can make solid choices in your life to be the unique individual 🧬 that you are without comparing yourself to others. Who cares what others are doing or what they have that you don’t⁉️Chances are they’re 👀 right back at you wishing for things you have that they don’t.
Focus on YOU. Who cares if they have the “perfect” relationship ❤️ or make more💰than you? Because let me tell you something: NO ONE escapes life without struggle. 💯 No one has the perfect anything. Social media makes this 8000 x worse. It’s not reality. Wake up.
Live your own life. And if you don’t like what you see in the mirror, join the club. There are MANY people 👥 out there that feel the same way about themselves. Work on your self-esteem so that you feel secure in who YOU are. 💪🏼 And you’ll never feel the need to compare yourself to others ever again.
I will be offering more help on self-esteem in the near future as I know it’s something we ALL struggle with at some point in our lives. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. Stay tuned...📖
