Oh my gosh, I've been trying stop comparing myself with others. It is so hard for me to just be happy. Any insight is greatly appreciated.
I am floating in the same boat :)
Been missing you around blogland. I hope all is well. I know. It's hard NOT to compare but I try not to. I would just drive myself crazy if I did.
Oh Vickie! I think we all have this demon inside of us- I think it is the world we live in that tells us to be pretty/thin/talented/supermom...........I turn 50 this year and am finally,finally letting this go!! Hang in there girl - it gets better!!
Great quote Vickie! Thanks for sharing!!! :)Hope all is going well!! :)
I needed that today. Thanks for sharing!
Ironic that this pin is on pinterest..the breeding grounds for comparison and self doubt! I won't sign up for that reason. Yesterday I had to make lemonade to use up our lemons (we have a tree) and I googled a recipe. They had styled the lemons/lemonade TO. THE. HILT. I start my lemonade and all the cuts from the lemon tree thorns felt really nice when I started juicing. I thought "yup, this is the crap they don't tell you about on pinterest!" :) You make beautiful stuff, are a mom, you are a full time dentist...separately those are accomplishments...together...WOW!
Boy, what a true quote that is....for me anyway!
Comparison is always the basis for inferiority.
I think when we compare ourselves to others we take away the joy of being an individual. A good example is seeing people who thoughtlessly and openly compare children and their accomplishments. One child will always come out the loser and feel less worthy and a failure. We all have something to offer, no matter how great or how small. I look around the blogs I love and see so many worthy people who do such wonderful work in all sorts of mediums. Some of my favorite are works that are small yet I am in awe too of the great cathedrals and the pyramids. Thank you for sharing this quote. It is a good reminder.(((HUGS))) Susanne :)
We are all different. Not better, not worse; just different.Kick out those demons and be you.
