Don’t compare yourselves to others.

Just a simple message for tonight’s blog post.

Let’s try not to compare ourselves to others. We’re all different and unique in our own ways. Just because someone else is flourishing right now, does not mean your time is not coming.

You’re stressing yourself out trying to figure out why your life isn’t as good as the next person.

Keep calm.

We can all shine.

  1. Things like Instagram and Facebook are invitations for compare and despair. I took a hiatus from things that made me feel badly about myself, and I’m still on a hiatus….it’s more peaceful staying offline. It’s hard not to compare, especially when we only see a sliver of someone’s life online. Offline, it’s usually a different story (the stuff we don’t see online).

    1. Omg this is so true! I wish I could go back in time and tell my younger self not to compare myself to people who put on an act for social media. I definitely had to step away from social media for a while in order to realize how unhealthy it was comparing myself to photoshopped pictures. Of course everyone is “perfect” online, they’re creating a new image to impress people who really don’t care and that’s a huge issue.

      1. Sadly, back in the day I didn’t have a life outside of social media and it was so unhealthy. A couple years ago, it escalated my depression which turned into major depression. Once I stepped away from social media, I was able to see things more clearly. A part of me is scared of returning to social media knowing what lies there. It’s like opening Pandora’s Box.

      2. Do you think if you limit your time on social media, if you return, that it’ll help? Or maybe if you become very selective with who/what you follow and who’s allowed to follow you? I’ve became very selective with what I wanted to see on my pages. It helped me a lot.

      3. I tried being selective about who I was following which didn’t help much. There were things I couldn’t unsee from people who were presumably friends, or people who I enjoyed following. Spending less time is challenging when the temptation to log in is still there, so I gave my passwords to my husband. These days, I often gravitate towards WordPress. It’s sorta become a replacement for social media.

        I also felt that social media wasn’t doing much for me in terms of my mental health and overall well-being. 😕 WP doesn’t seem to have that negative effect.

      4. I completely understand! For me, WordPress is like my social getaway when I need to step away from Twitter (it’s the platform I use the most, although I still barely post).
