I want to be transparent and real. Life isn’t always easy. I feel like it is so easy to compare yourself to others and I used to find myself doing that very often. I would scroll through Instagram and with every picture I would find myself feeling worse and worse about myself. “why don’t I have her body, wow! She looks like she’s always happy, she has the perfect life” I was letting every picture determine my self-worth and I realized that I was literally letting Instagram pictures rule my life! UNTIL, I heard this amazing quote: “Don’t compare your behind the scenes to everyone else’s highlight reel” That quote couldn’t be more true! It is so easy to be wrapped up and consumed with the comparison of everyone’s photos online! But, you have a choice. You can choose to be miserable and constantly look at the things you don’t have, Or you can decide to be happy and confident and strong. Find your talents! Use them! I have chosen that I am not going to let simple pictures determine how I feel about myself. I am not going to compare myself to others, and I am going to be strong and confident and happy with my life because life is just way too short to let little things get to you! The day I chose to do that I felt so much relief! I didn’t have to compare anymore! I can spread my light with others and just be ME! So just remember to enjoy every moment, Be happy, You are beautiful and uniquely you! YOU’VE GOT THIS!
