Stop being your own worst enemy.
Women are notorious for comparing ourselves to other women. We compare ourselves to another’s woman’s physical features, coveting her slim body, her gorgeous hair and her flair for fashion. We compare ourselves to another woman’s talents and abilities. We envy her social status, expensive home and possessions, her flourishing career, her ability to make friends, and her successful husband or handsome boyfriend.
Without realizing it—when we compare ourselves to other women—we actually define ourselves
You can’t experience your beauty until you fully accept yourself.
You are not supposed to be like anyone else in this world. You were created with a unique personality, exclusive physical features and special talents. God doesn’t look down at you and say, “What’s wrong with you? Why can’t you be more like your sister? Why can’t you be like Taylor Swift or J.K. Rowling?"
You were created to develop your own style, cultivate your own talents and achieve your own successes in life. You are intended to fulfill your own destiny.
But, the toxic act of comparing yourself to others robs you of your blessings by:
- Eroding your confidence and self-esteem
- Blinding you to your full potential
- Fueling your insecurities and low self-esteem issues
- Damaging your spirit and leaving you discouraged
- Impairing your talents and abilities
- Causing you to view yourself in an unrealistic light
- Creating unreasonable expectations of you, and of your loved ones and friends
- Serving as the impetus for your criticisms, envy and jealousy
In other words, your negative, disparaging thoughts create your own sad reality.
When you see a woman, who you imagine is prettier, smarter or more sophisticated or successful than you, mentally yell at your inner critic, STOP! Tell yourself, I am special. I am unique. I am not supposed to be like anyone else on this planet and acknowledge, appreciate and develop your innate personality, talents and abilities.
