Stay in your own lane.
You have heard me saying before that the relationship we have with ourselves shapes every single area of our lives, from relationships to work, even health.
If that relationship is healthy, you are able to accept yourself as you are, imperfections (if such things exist other than in our minds) and all.
One of the main causes of us not feeling enough or feeling less than is that we keep comparing ourselves to others.Continuously.
This puts us on a roller coaster of ups and downs, depending on our own expectations being met or not, who we compare ourselves to and what underlying thoughts and beliefs are running the show.
This issue of comparing ourselves to others gets exacerbated in our social media era.
Has it ever happened to you that you are perfectly fine, going happily about your life, not second-guessing the way things are going and then you go to check your feed and the gremlins of inadequacy, not enough, falling short, kick in?
If only I could be more like her….if only I could have more….. if only……
There you are again.
Instead of staying in your own lane, you begin to focus too much on what’s going on around you.
Stopping this ingrained tendency to compare that has been going on in our heads for years, takes time, practice and commitment, but it is life changing.
When this changes, everything else changes too.
With practice and commitment, you can start accepting yourself just as you are so you can feel good and enough in the skin you are in and see others as an inspiration, perhaps an aspiration, instead of a threat to yourself.
As the saying goes, you better be yourself because everyone else is already taken.
Stop racing against yourself.
My job? to keep reminding you that you are enough already, no matter what, and to help you realise this truth.
With love xoxo
