What’s the quickest way to lose your self esteem? Comparison. Wether that be comparison of someone’s appearance, relationship or lifestyle it’s all the same. You will be on a one way road to self destruction the more you compare.
Think of all the great things you have in your life, your job, your family, your friends, your partner or your dog. Make a note of all the things you’re greatful for, you could be surprised at how long that list gets, but if you still find yourself thinking there is always someone who has it better, that’s because there usually is. In this world there will always be someone better off and worse off than yourself, doesn’t matter what category that comes under, but what matters is how you view yourself. Do you wake up in the morning and think of your flaws? or do you wake up and tell yourself I am beautiful inside and out and I am so blessed to have all these people and things in my life. If you don’t then let me tell you right now, the more we compare the more we loose ourselves and what a tragic shame that would be. You are so beautiful each and everyone of you. We are all uniquely different and that is why we are so perfect in our own way. Think of the person you compare yourself too, now imagine if there were 50 people in the world that looked like them, that person would no longer be the same because there uniqueness is diminished.
It’s all about owning your differences, we only get this one body, this one face and this one life as far as we know. So embrace its beauty and wonder in all that you can. We always say treat others with kindness, but what about treating yourself with kindness? What about loving yourself? Today, I want to leave you all with a message. You are beautiful just as you are, so blessed and so loved. Accept any compliments graciously and gratefully, smile and have a wonderful day.
