Comparing ourselves to others can get ugly fast.

“I’m not as young as her… as wealthy, as skinny, as smart… etc.” The list can go on forever. When we focus on what other people have on the outside, we’re not looking at what we can offer. The truth is, no one has it easy. The kinds of lives other people appear to have may not represent the whole story. They may have a horrible time keeping things together. They may work endless hours, or be intensely self-critical. We don’t ever know.

Celebrate your personality. Everyone has their own challenges, so don’t get caught up in how other people are doing. You’ll miss out on the most important part of your life, and that’s you.

  1. I love this. Iyanla Vanzant once said, “comparison is an act of violence against the self” and I love that quote. It truly is, and I want to love myself not hate me for being who I am. So I hope to remember this post and this quote in my moments of weakness. :)
