Self Love Practice Tip #106
In today’s post we will continue to talk about how to stop comparing yourself to others. Once you become aware how passively you compare yourself to others, you don’t have to feel bad about it. Everybody has done it. Here are few things that have helped me to keep these emotions in check and beat the jealousy because just like other emotions like sadness and jealously, anger and resentful, comparing will also hold you back and so if have goals of being successful or have great health and whatever your goals are, you are going to be stuck if you continue to dwell in these emotions of jealousy and envy. There are some people who dwell in it so bad and try to keep up with those emotions in an unhealthy way that it just takes them further and further way from their dreams rather than bringing them closer. There are ways in which you can protect yourself from letting these emotions get you too far. Tip number one would be to be aware. Most importantly you have to be aware how you compare yourself to others and why and when. Whenever you make these statements like “XYZ is better and I am not”, catch yourself and ask yourself why are you making these statements. Do you often compare yourself with the same type of people or person and then feel like you constantly have to compete? Sometimes it is not only about comparing really, you may have some friends and family who are constantly taking about material things and which makes you think about how you don’t have those material things. Comparing is sometimes transferred. But at these times, understand why are you feeling the need to compete or compare?
