Self Love Practice Tip #83

In today’s post we will talk on how to stop comparing yourself to others. First off, unfollow any social media accounts which make you feel bad about yourself. Do it. Specially those account which make us feel absolutely inadequate. You unfollow, block or delete, whichever works best for you. Social media can be a blessing or a curse. Depending on how to control what you are viewing and how you are interpreting it with regards to comparing yourself to others. It is so easy to scroll through Instagram and start comparing your life instead of looking at others for motivation and inspiration, specially if you are having an off day or a bad day and you feel like you not enough. And then you scroll through Instagram and see these accounts. They make you feel worse about yourself and it is such a bad circle if you get stuck in that mindset. My favourite social media outlet is Instagram and it is probably worse in terms of comparing yourself in terms of others. Since Instagram is all about eye catching photos and captions, it is all about being extra and captivating right. Therefore when we follow certain accounts, we may feel that we may not be doing much with our lives, we feel broke and just bad about our appearances. Comparing yourself to others in anyway will automatically without a doubt give a blow to your self esteem.

Come back tomorrow to know more about comparing yourself to others.

      Thank you Al. We all need to assess where those negative comparisons are stemming from. As unpleasant as these comparisons can feel, they can serve a positive purpose in that they inform us of an area of our lives that may benefit from some improvement. The incident served as a reminder that I want to be secure enough in who I am and where I am in life that I don’t feel the need to measure it in comparison to anyone else (least of all, a stranger).

      Yes I am guilty as well. We all know the gut wrenching feeling that arises when we see or hear something that immediately has us second guessing our appearance, personality, or skill set. Unfortunately, social media provides us with numerous platforms that help to quickly trigger that unpleasant self-disdain.

  3. Comparison leads to nowhere. Social media is not always real. Thanks for reminding 😉

      Thank you. I am glad my post reminded you of your own uniqueness. “The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.” ~Steve Furtick. We all have certain triggers that can cause our confidence to take a sudden nosedive.
