Have you ever noticed when you get caught in this dangerous game of comparing yourself to others? How do you feel?
When You’re Not Living Your Vision, You Tend to Look Outward…
When your life is not where you want it to be or you feel behind in some way, you don’t feel great and instead feel you are lacking in every area. In this situation, it’s easy to look outward and see people living their “perfect” lives.
Social Media Can be Misleading
When everything fell apart in my and my family’s lives and I would browse on my Facebook page, all I saw were happy people living their fulfilling lives. All I could think about was why didn’t I have what they had.
I Felt Angry and Bitter.
But how did I really know if they were happy and leading perfect lives? Maybe they were happy, but it was certainly not going to help me by comparing myself with them. It just created feelings of lack over and over in me.
You are Original and Have Your Own Beautiful Life
I needed to change what I was feeling inside. Instead of looking outwardly, why wasn’t I paying attention to my inner self? This was the PERFECT opportunity to take a mirror to my soul and reflect on what I really wanted from my life.
I could see what I could do to transform my life. And that’s exactly what I did.
