Welcome to the Daily Dose of Self Love. This series will be about self love, self care, self esteem and self worth. Basically everything related with SELF. My aim with this series is to give you a daily boost of self love and self care. We all get busy with our lives and sometimes it leaves us less or no time to take time for ourselves, be with ourselves, wash off all the negativity that we accumulated during the day with self love, meditation, etc. The daily boost will be in an easy to understand and more importantly something which is relatable. So Welcome!!
Self Love Practice Tip #105
In today’s post we will continue to talk about how to stop comparing yourself to others. When we get down on ourselves and believe that we are not good enough or have low self esteem, that is when we start comparing ourselves to another. Another emotion which comes from comparing yourself to others is envy and jealously. Both are pretty similar. These are normal human emotions and we just have to control them like anger and sadness. That is also why we do not think of happiness because if we have it 100% of the time, then we would, so jealously and envy are emotions that are normal but we definitely want to control those so that they don’t hold us back from reaching our own goals and dreams. Some say social media has made comparing ourselves to other worse, but I believe people have been doing it for a very long time. The internet has only exposed what people would be doing without the internet. There are certain people who just like to boost about themselves with the aim of making other people bad about themselves, beneath them. I think even without social media we would still be comparing ourselves to others. I definitely know that people compare themselves to other when they are in school and college. I know a lot of schools started having uniform so that it would help with not comparing oneself to others because there were kids who could afford brand names and kids that could afford none. As we get older, we really do the same things still. We still compare our bodies and our social status with others.
Come back tomorrow for more inspiration.
