Have you ever felt like you are never good enough? I feel that almost every single day. 😦
Whenever I browse through my feed, I keep on seeing a cover girl for a magazine, a celebrity showing off her #OOTD or her #Shoefie. And I can’t help but compare my life to theirs.
Sometimes I think social media isn’t really for easy communication but a valid medium to show off. I, too, try to post only good things. However, my boring life will never compare to Kylie and Kendall Jenner’s. Like ever. And I know that. I accept that. (
Yeah. Okay. Maybe I haven’t accepted it.) It’s just that, I really get so sad that it won’t.
Like, “Why can’t I have a life like that? Buy all the things I want? Be pretty almost all the time?”
I guess this is the reason we can’t be happy. We keep on comparing ourselves to others. And we have got to stop. I know it might be hard, but acknowledging that the problem exists is a good start.
You are the perfect you. Why try to blend in when you are destined to shine?
How about you? How are dealing/did you deal with the obsessive self-comparison? Please comment it below. It’ll be a great help to me and to others. Happiness starts within ourselves. ♥
