Why do you compare yourself to others, dear heart?
Yes, it is natural, especially in your age of technology, to be swept up in the lives and achievements of those around you.
But your own life deserves more of your focus and energy.
When you compare yourself to someone else, you do yourself a great disservice. You do not truly know what their experience is in private, when no one is watching.
You are here to live your life, not focus on someone else’s. Give yourself your own attention.
So how can you turn your gaze back onto yourself?
It takes intention, awareness, and reflection.
Make a commitment to yourself that you will release comparison and instead focus on your own journey. And if your current reality is not everything you desire, then how can you make it so? You get to do that – create the life you want.
Take the steps toward the dream life you envision. Celebrate your progress along the way. Embrace the challenges that may appear before you.
And always, always invest in yourself and your own life first and foremost.
