Raise your hand if you have compared yourself to another person before; now put down your hand if you laughed at the screen and said yes. We’ve all been there especially as teens girls. Who’s prettier, who’s skinner, who’s smarter, who has a better looking boyfriend… the list goes on and on.
So, comparison, why do we focus on it SO much? Everyone’s life is different and everyone grows at different rates. Should a 11 year old girl compare her life to a 17 year old girl? NO they are at totally different points in their lives.
Recently, I was watching this youtuber Marissa Lace who I absolutely adore. She shares a lot of similar passions as I do and I was thinking about how I wish my life could resemble hers. THAT’S SO DUMB, but I realized why I felt that way. She’s 24 with a successful job and seems to have her life together. Contrary, I’m a 19 year old college student who’s scared and has no idea what she’s doing. That’s normal. I can’t compare my chapter 3 to someone’s chapter 5.
My advice to you is to be present and live in the moment. Say yes to new opportunities and life will come together just as it’s meant to be, just be patient.
