Theodore Roosevelt said it best ”Comparison is the thief of joy”
When we see one thing in a person that reflects how we would like to be, in success or in worth, or appearance, we often make an instant assessment of comparison. When we compare ourselves to what others have, what they have achieved, or simply how they look, we are essentially making ourselves feel down right inadequate, discontented, and deflated. It is unhealthy.
I've been there and can admit that nothing good comes out of comparison. It sucks our joy and self-esteem for insecurity and jealousy.
💗Embrace gratefulness and self-love
💗Focus on what you have right now, what you hope to achieve by goal setting, and where you see yourself in 5 years (without identifying others for comparison). You can develop motivation in seeing what you want to achieve without unhealthy jealousy or envy.
💗Set limits on social media time - it is easy to get sucked into comparison with some of the unrealistic expectations and examples on social media. And that time could be invested into CREATING YOU!
💗Remember that today is the first day in your journey to self-worth and personal achievement - not comparison
💗You are worthy, amazing, full of potential...keep working on YOU and all you can be WITHOUT comparing to others!
Have a self-love filled day 💗
