One of the hardest things to overcome in life is to stop comparing yourself to others. It may seem as though someone else has EVERYTHING you’ve ever wanted. They may have what you don’t and achieved what you only wish you could, they may even be younger than you while doing it all. Their life is like your dream, but it’s their reality. They appear from every angle to have that seemingly perfect life. Well, you might be that woman to someone else.
One of the biggest struggles that I’ve had, and from time to time I definitely still have to deal with today, is comparing myself to others around me. It’s especially hard when it looks like everything they have comes so easily, and yet when you try your best you receive nothing.
Someone told me recently, “Don’t compare your weaknesses to someone else’s strengths”. You have your own strengths.
I’m not saying that I don’t still have those moments when I look at someone else’s Instagram and think to myself, “Wow, I wish that was me”. I do. But now I have come to realize that my worth isn’t in my Instagram photos, what I can do or achieve. My worth is in Christ. God has a plan that He has waiting for me and is perfectly planned out. Maybe what I think I want isn’t coming true but He has something even better than I can imagine in plan for me. It probably will not be what they have, but that’s okay because I am living my own life and carving my own path, not wishing for theirs. I would not want to miss out on what the Creator of the universe has in store for me because I’m sitting in my room becoming jealous of what someone else has.
