Letting Go of Comparison and Choosing Contentment
Ever have a moment like this…
You’re feeling pretty good about life, your job, your relationship but after vegging out on social media, you’re feeling like your whole life is “less than”.
Perhaps you lament that you don’t have your friend’s perfectly manicured, professionally taken photographs of her happily-ever-after family?.
Or look at that Pinterest worthy kitchen complete with quartz countertops and pearly white cabinets when you’re just struggling to make rent, much less afford the down payment on a house.
Then your boss calls you to her office and explains that you didn’t get the promotion you’ve been working towards.
Whether on social media or simply hearing about someone else’s success, it’s easy to compare and begin wondering why your’s isn’t so happy, so magical, so easy.
But chances are, that life/relationship/job you are comparing yours too isn’t exactly perfect.
Consciously, we know comparison doesn’t build our self-esteem, yet, we still fall into the trap of subconsciously comparing ourselves, our relationships, our jobs, and our lives with those around us.
you are veering closer to comparison versus contentment?
Focus on what you do WELL!
