Thief of Joy

Hey, Maniacs!

I’m sorry it has been a bit since I’ve spoken to you guys! Lots of things going on and I’m trying to process! It’s an exciting, scary, uncertain journey that I am embarking on but I will be sure to touch base with you guys when I can! So many lessons are being learned however and others reinforced.

With that being said, can you guys do me a favor? STOP COMPARING YOURSELVES TO OTHERS.

Whew!

That felt so good to say! Seriously though, in short, what the hell good is it to compare your apples to someone else’s oranges anyway? “Comparison is the thief of joy” and to constantly be burdened by the success or downfall of others compared to yours is awful and can be damaging beyond repair.

A constant state of comparing is a seed that sprouts insecurity, jealousy, bitterness, and loss of self! Some people like to say comparing is good because it makes you be better. In some instances, yes, but the majority forget that part and pass the threshold of healthy and go to the extreme.

We all do not look alike, act alike, think alike, work alike or learn alike. And guess what? THAT IS OKAY!

This is a lesson that I learn repeatedly because it is so easy to get caught up in the facade of “I gotta be like this person or that person because what I do or what I bring to the table is not enough.

Where does it end? When do you feel like you are enough just as you are? If you constantly compare, no matter the amount of you have experienced, you will always continue to downplay who you are in order to be someone else–and the truth is that person you are comparing yourself to is probably comparing themselves to others too! It’s a vicious cycle that needs to end. Most importantly with you yourself!

That’s all I have for now, Maniacs! Will check back in with you soon!

Be KIND to yourself and Be KIND to others. You are enough! 🤗
