We’re all guilty of this one crime and if we’re not careful this minor offense can turn into a full on underground operation. Here’s how it starts…
*opens app (clock or instafuck)
*little green monster inside you wakes up… and it’s hungry
*You start feeding it…
“I wish I had that body.” “Why am I not an athletic?” “I’d love to be on that beach.” “I wish I was in that relationship.” And the next thing you know, you’ve been highjacked and you’re running a Ponzi scheme of comparison. If you’re not careful you’ll end up locked into it and locked up because of it. When I say this I mean, you’ll end up continuing to compare yourself and you’ll start hating yourself because you’re not what you think you should be.
It is normal to have moments of jealousy and envy but start checking yourself. When those thoughts start popping up remind yourself of two things: One, you’re a badass mfer who’s unique and has talents and abilities you don’t even know about yet. And two, You’re only witnessing a snapshot of reality. There is no one who’s “better” than you and you’re not “better” than anyone else. It really is a level playing field of a bunch of dope people and celebrating some else in no way diminishes you and your uniqueness.
