2: On comparing yourself to others
This episode is dedicated to the times I asked the question “why can’t I be like them?”. Oftentimes falling in the pit of comparison and self-pity, thinking that my worth is anchored on external things. Listen as we take you into understanding that sometimes it’s inevitable to compare ourselves to others but we have ways to redirect it and foster a healthy time of competition with yourself rather than people around you.
It highlights that each and every one of us has the ability to shine in our own ways and what we all have is completely complex and different from one another. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
We only see the tip of the iceberg of what people intentionally show in social media so it’s important that we all take the time to step back understand that what people went through to get to where they are now must be difficult for them too.
We’ll get there, we’ll shine someday there’s no need for us to beat ourselves down based on somebody else’s ruler.
Happy listening lovies!
