Stop Comparing Me!
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
We all have a condition, a status, a description. We all have some degree or position on some scale of weight, health, wealth and beauty.
Every day we are compared to others. Usually not to our benefit, or it's to negate feelings. You have a cold? Mine's worse. You have this condition? Be grateful it's not this one. You lost 5 pounds? Nice, but she lost 20.
Our peers, friends and family do this to us all the time.
What's worse? We do it to ourselves!
Deny it. I dare you. I watched a movie last night where the leading role actress looked a lot like me. You know, if I lost 100 pounds. And spent hours a day in a gym.
And there I go again.
I can't stop others from doing it, but I should be able to stop ME from doing it!
