Recently I have found myself in a bit of the comparison game. Normally, I am super confident in myself and independent. I mind my own business and don’t think about what other people are doing or how fast they’re coming along compared to me. Comparing to other people does me no good. Everyone is on their own path and journey and it differs from person to person. However, it is so easy to compare to someone else and how more successful they are being even though you may be doing the same thing. I’ve been at this whole blogging thing for a year now and am not at as much growth as I want to be but, you know what? It’s okay. I am on my own journey, at my own pace. As long as I’m focusing on myself and my growth, good things will happen and come to me.
It’s definitely a lot easier said than done to say, “Don’t compare yourself to others” but with time and self confidence it will come. I struggle with it even though I consider myself very confident. A tip I have is to filter your social medias because lets face it, we’re on it all day everyday. I’m very selective about the social media accounts I follow. I only follow accounts that I know I can relate to or empower me to be the best me I can be. I follow curvy bloggers and accounts that post empowering quote graphics.
Just know we’re all on our journeys, going through our own battles. You could be wanting something someone else has but they may want what you have. As long as you take everyday with a grain of salt and focus on yourself, you will go far.
