"Comparison is the thief of joy." - Theodore Roosevelt
I found the following on a website:
"She loses weight so fast. I wish my butt looked big. Her butt looks nice in those jeans, my butt is flat. She said she took these pills, I will try it too. Her pictures look good on Snapchat. Her life seems fabulous since she lost weight. Why can’t I look like the Instagram models....."
Do you ever feel this way? I know that I have had these thoughts. I have looked at others and thought that their measurements are awesome. Why aren't mine? Whether you are young or older, we all want to look as good as we can. Some people seem to lose weight easier, they may have a faster metabolism...
My idea is to embrace who we are....whether you are chubby or skinny each of us have good characteristics that others may envy.
Let's look at the big picture. Comparisons will only make you feel defeated. My decision is to take care of me and not strive to look like someone else. I will continue on my journey ONLY trying to better myself.
