The reason I am writing this is to show you a unique perspective on comparing yourself with other people.
Social media is full of the perfect moments in the lives of us but sometimes when you are down in the drain these perfect moments seldom empower you.
Instead they make you feel like a failure.
Comparing myself with my friends and college mates who have girlfriends/boyfriends, perfect slim bodies, and happiness makes me feel like I am missing out on life.
And if you feel like same way when you scroll your social media feed, you are not alone.
But we know how it goes. They probably feel as empty inside as me or maybe more. But the truth is my social life is not what I want it to be.
And I am not blaming anyone.
Ok ok I am blaming my past. But I am learning to see past these superficial comparisons.
So what is the solution?
I noticed that as soon as I focus on what I love, that is self-expression, I feel good about myself. I am even planning to go all in.
As soon as I write I feel like I am doing something unique to me. I am sharing my unique life story and gifts to the world.
I don’t know what the phd psychologist will recommend as a solution but this one solution, doing your passion works for me.
I follow a guy whose name is Grant Cardone, New York Times best-selling author and the founder of the 10X Rule and I love his ideas. One of his ideas is to swim in the kool-aid than just drinking it. It means to immerse yourself in an activity or learn about something so much that you forget everything else and fully commit to it in order to be a master in it.
In Grant’s own life he is busy all the time and tells his viewer that if you want to meet the devil, have blank space in your calendar. It is a good example for comparing the negative thoughts and comparisons to the devil in your head.
So I hope you liked this little post and see you every Monday. I say Monday but I am posting a new blog post everyday and it gets old when I say “see you every Monday”. So see you tomorrow!
