Too many days are wasted comparing yourself to others and wishing to be something you simply are not.
Guilty as charged; we have all done it at some point in our lives.
But, everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses.
Comparing yourself to others is a natural reaction in life. Knowing how to stop comparing yourself to others can feel impossible in this social media saturated world. Not only that, but the accessibility made possible by social media may cause you to start to have unfounded insecurities and criticisms about yourself. In the process of judging other people, you end up judging yourself.
Why do we have the tendency to compare ourselves to others in the first place?
Unfortunately, social media is something that can ignite the "comparison complex" on the daily. When you see that your friends are getting married, having kids, going on vacations, or getting promoted, you can't help but want that for yourself. Your energy directs towards what you don't have in your life instead of focusing on the positive and everything you do have.
Motivational speaker, Sammy Davis, shares how you can embrace where you are in life with confidence and security.
3 Ways to Stop Comparing Yourself to Others:
- Reflect on the positive things that you have in your life.
- Remember that the grass isn't always greener.
- Happiness is a decision you make; you are as happy as you decide to be.
