Why compare ?
As someone wise told me once: “It doesn’t matter how many people are on your side cheering you on. If you can’t get on your own side, you can't get past, go”
There’s always the question of why we do it when it just doesn’t feel right, is it for satisfaction? Or to get that boost of reassurance and the only outcome usually (well for me anyway) is just a sense of emptiness, then I promise to never do it again until the next time (2 mins later lol). Comparing ourselves to other there will never be a win, I mean how often we compare ourselves to someone less fortunate and consider ourselves blessed? More often, we compare ourselves with someone who have or are doing more and we just come up short.
This whole comparing thing was planted as a seed back in our childhoods when our parents say but "Tilly doesn’t make her trousers dirty" or when your teacher says "look at Henry’s work" when they simply can say "but you’re different" as everyone’s individuality is what brings diversity. Instead of trying so hard to compare our lifestyles, looks and ideas to others who do lack qualities that you possess and that is the beauty of individual differences.
If you are trapped in this bubble ask yourself this, what I’m I gaining from this? In other words, have you become a new and improved version of yourself?
We all came to the world different and that is what makes every one of us beautiful, so why deny it?
Do your thing girl xx
