Don't compare yourself to others,
that is when you start to lose confidence in yourself.
- Will Smith
The comparison game on social media is so toxic, and has been weighing heavily on my mind lately. I was sitting on the couch, scrolling through my Instagram feed (waisting time) and I automatically started wishing I had "this and that". Comparison truly is the thief of joy. Insecurities are developed because we compare our "behind-the-scenes" with everyone else's "highlight reel".
A lot of the time when we start comparing ourselves with someone else, we don't realize how that person worked HARD to get where they are. It is so easy to look at people's highlights and think that their lives are perfect. I promise you this, everybody has trials, big or small.
Here is the thing; just because someone has reached certain milestones before you did, doesn't mean you won't get there too.
Your worth is not measured by likes, comments, notes or followers; but in your ability to love, support, encourage, take note and lead.
What should you do when social media gets under your skin?
DELETE DELETE AND DELETE!!!
Seriously, it's that simple. There's no need to follow someone that makes you feel bad about yourself. Nobody wants to be friends with someone that doesn't bring positive thoughts to the plate. Remove all that negativity from your feeds and fill it with inspirational, fun, motivating, whatever it is that you like fill it with that.
