I chose this one because it really rings true to my heart. Growing up, I always compared myself to everyone else.
But I'm proud to say I've stopped, and I'm stopping. I would never be happy if I look at others to set the standard of what I should be doing. Helllll no. I'll be setting the standards from now, and that's what I have been doing. I decided how well I wanted to do in school this semester, and I did it. I decided where I wanted to work, and what my opportunities would be, and I did them. I decided what my niche and following would be on this blog, and I'm so proud to say that I completely surpassed them. I'm done comparing myself to anyone else. I will never be you, and you will never be me, and for good reason. It's only when I realized that being different was my strong point that I realized how much I have to offer. I'm not a carbon copy of anyone else, because I choose not to be. And it's because of this, that I'm truly happy.
I hope you find your happiness, and that you stop comparing yourself to others. Chances are, they aren't as awesome as you are!
Do you struggle with comparing yourself to others? How do you remind yourself that you shouldn't?
