I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have moments where I would compare myself to others to the point of being critical and insecure. Is that feeling that you want to be accepted just as you are and sometimes in order to get there we forget, that the only person that has to accept you is You.
This is something, that we do without even thinking about it. When I was a little girl I used to get a lot of attention by being “good ” and ” listening to what I am told”.As I grew up I realised that you have to draw a line. By learning to say “no” and stop thinking “am I good enough?” I rediscovered the beauty of being authentic.Since then I am experiencing freedom and happiness like never before.
I would sometimes compare myself to past successes , past body shapes, past places I have been or other similar things. What a waste of time. Change is the only sure thing in life.
You are unique and special just the way you are.
Only when you stop comparing yourself to others you can begin to love yourself.
You are amazing, just the way you are.
