It’s All Apples and Oranges
Comparing yourself to others doesn’t make any sense. We are all so different and while we strive to fit in, wouldn’t it be amazing if we could embrace our differences. These things make us unique, interesting and fun. Imagine if we were all the same….boring!! This doesn’t mean we don’t strive to be the best version of ourselves, that’s different, right! We are always learning, evolving and in order to do this we make mistakes. Yes, I know we all hate to make them but reality is, in some way we make these daily. The race for perfection is a never ending wheel. We will never get there, that’s right never. Trying will take away your sense of difference and result in low self-esteem and a poor self-concept. It will erode what makes you, you. We spend so much time comparing ourselves we forget to embrace who we are. What makes us unique. ‘’ Do yourself a favour, stop comparing yourself to others and stop minimising your worth. Some of you might say competition is healthy and while yes, competition can motivate us to do better, it becomes counter-productive when it results in us feeling we are less. From today onwards embrace what makes you unique - You will feel much better about yourself.
