Are you a chronic comparer? Go on, admit it. I used to be. I used to look at all the fabulous people around me and play the comparison game. Let’s just say I never won. Oh no, instead I just felt like shit all the time and wasted far too much energy looking outwards rather than focusing on what really mattered – my path!
Yet again it was my guru (read: husband) who reminded me that as long as you compare yourself to others, you’re never going to be happy. And what a truth that is. Taking a small snippet of someone’s life and comparing it to where you’re at is completely ridiculous when you say it out loud. Don’t you think? Who knows how they got there, what they had to endure to meet their fortunes, and hey, who knows what lies ahead for you, too. Right? Too right.
I don’t play that game anymore. Sure, my mind tries to tease me and wander down the path once skipped, but I remind myself that there’s never a rainbow at the end, rather a storm cloud that hangs over you and veers you off course. I quickly learned that the more energy I put into other people’s situations, the less I’m putting into my own. Screw that! It’s all about me baby. And those awesome people around me are awesome and inspirational and fabulous. But hey, so am I. As are you.
Tell me Happies…
Do you play the comparison game?
Do you ever win?
