This is a huge one in our world. Let’s have a little chat about it...
These days we live in a world where it is easy to be ‘showy’ or see everyone's achievements broadcasted across social media. Everything and everyone is glorified which can force our mind to wander, right? We can NOT under any circumstance let our mind compare with what is around us. It is poison to our body.
It will harm the way you live your life and will fastly start controlling you. You will imprison yourself and that will suck big time.
1. COMPARING WILL EFFECT YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS
Sometimes the whole reason for comparing ourselves to others is because we feel like we are not achieving as much as they are. What if I told you that comparing yourself to them will hinder what your set out to do? By comparing you are actually neglecting your own world and saying what you have achieved so far is not good enough?? Back yourself more. Believe in yourself more. Stay in your own lane.
2. COMPARING WILL EFFECT YOUR FRIENDSHIPS
First of all, we need our friends.
I reckon it's easy to compare ourselves to people that are the closest to us. That means friendships….
When you chose to be their friend it means you chose to support and cheer them on through ALL life achievements. You have chosen to have fun with them & to be their biggest fan (well that’s what I want in a friend).
Your friends win is your win.
By comparing yourself to them you have You are NOT in competition with your friend.
BUT my question is… if you are comparing yourself with them automatically put yourself in competition mode.
How are you ever meant to be happy for them and support them?.
How are you ever meant to push them to achieve their goals and boss it in life?
The comparison will tear down your friendships… and darling it’s a lonely world without a friend.
3. COMPARING WILL EFFECT YOUR JOY
There is no joy in comparison only disappointment, sadness, bitterness and loneliness. I don’t know about you but I do NOT want to live my life with them feels brah. I want joy. I need joy.
If you go through life keeping your joy it will be so much sweeter and you will be so much sweeter.
These are just a few areas in your life that will suffer when you compare yourself to others.
The truth is you will never EVER be like someone else. Your life will NEVER play out like someone else’s so there is no point in comparing.
Their shoes don’t fit you like your shoes fit you.
I am no expert but I do know that if you free yourself from comparison and stay in your own lane then you will be able to achieve so much more in life while having the most epic friendships and a joyful spirit.
Enjoy this life by just doing you, boo.
You are beautiful, powerful, smart, wise, LOVED, cherished, thought of, wanted and needed.
Believe it, remember it and go get em, girl!
