Motivational Monday: Don't compare your life to others
We live in a world of highlight reels. From Instagram to Facebook, people tend to share their best moments. Good hair, good makeup, good memories. So, it is easy to think that your life doesn't compare to other people's lives.
It is important to remember that people don't necessarily share their worst moments, worst hair, worst makeup, deepest struggles. Think about your Instagram feed...do you easily share yourself without a filter makeup free? I absolutely don't.
Think about someone's feed that made you feel less than recently. Behind that pretty smile and good hair may be a failing marriage, a sick parent, a waffling career, or worse. You don't know their full story, but you do know yours.
And your story is something to celebrate! If you are in a rough patch, that rough patch is going to make the next time life feels easier feel even better. Each rough patch builds character and strength and brings on even brighter light when things even out.
One of the biggest lessons I have learned is that life is a series of highs and lows. Each high seems higher because of the low I have climbed out of to get there.
So please don't compare your life to others. You will get your time to shine.
Are you having a rough patch? Are you going through an easy time? Share some of your story below. I would love to start a conversation with you.
