A Life in Celebration:
Why you need to stop comparing yourself to others.
You know you sometimes do it, and you know it doesn’t make you feel good, but why do you need to stop comparing yourself to others? This is a little topic that comes up often among bloggers. It isn’t unusual for this to come up in group chats on Instagram or in blog mastermind groups.
“Enjoy your own life without comparing it with that of another.” – Marquis de Condorcet
Be aware of your triggers:
Social media is one of the biggest triggers for making you compare yourself to others. Limit your time on social media and be aware of what you are doing on there. If seeing others’ feeds, their tropical vacation or seemingly perfect life is a trigger for you feeling bad about yourself, then stop.
What are you comparing?
Think about it. Are you comparing your worst features against someone else’s best features?
Count your blessings:
Look for the good in your own life. What are you good at? Be yourself and be your best self. If you want to compare yourself to someone, look at yourself. I recently found an old email that talked about how excited I was that I had 21 visits to this very blog one day. Look back and see how far you have come and stop comparing yourself to others.
The most important things come from the inside, not the outside.
Comparing yourself to others can only bring dissatisfaction.
You are the only one who can be YOU…and YOU are fabulous!
