“Don’t compare your real life to someone else’s controlled online content”
“Admire someones beauty without questioning your own”
Next time you see someone and begin to start comparing and questioning yourself, try to use it as a source of inspiration and motivation. What is it you admire about this person? What do they have that you would love to work towards? Let them inspire you and motivate you.
Everyone is different and special in their own way. Instead of comparing, congratulate and be happy for the success of others. If you see someone’s new Gucci bag on insta instead of feeling down that you don’t have it, feel pleased for that person. You do not know how hard they may have worked to get it.
If someones content does trigger inadequacy, self-doubt and frustration simply unfollow and find others to engage with instead.
“Comparison with my self brings improvement, comparison with others brings discontent”
It’s human nature to compare ourselves to one another, but all it really does take away from you joy and happiness. It takes your eyes off your own goals and starts to focus them on others instead. Life isn’t a competition and everyone is on a different path.
So set your own goals and dreams. Instead of wasting your time and energy over-analyzing others, work towards your own success everyday. You are the only person you can compare yourself with. As soon as you start taking control of your own path and life, you’ll become a lot less focused on the path of others.
