question of the day, day 2

January 2nd 2015 4:27pm

Current Mood: Amused
Current song: We all bleed red by Ronny Dunn.

Question Prompt:
Who do you Sometimes compare your self to?

This Entry is going to be better than the first in this series thank goodness.
I actually have an answer to this one and i've put thought into what i'm going to say.
so here we go.

I sometimes Compare myself to Salt(Salt being a person of course because most peoples names are changed on here. :)

So yeah for years i Compared myself to Salt because she seemed near perfect to me,.beautiful, skinny, Kind, Smart, Talented, Trusted, Outgoing, Musical Had lots of friends and everyone seems to want to be her friend.
Shes well off Financially and seems to have the world at her finger tips...
then and now.
She's of course not Perfect has faults and issues and problems more of which i'm finding out about as time goes by.
I've of course known that nobody is perfect and the Grass isn't always greener on the other side.
But even knowing the issues of this person i can't help every now and then comparing mybself to her...even with her problems she seems to have way more going for her than i do me...
But Shes older she wasn't where she is now when she was my age.
and even if she was i know that its not good to compare yourself to others because we are all different people with different stories.

Here are some of my favorite quotes on the subject they are lessons learned in life :)

"Why compare yourself to others? noone in the world can do a better job at being you than you"

"The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare out Behind-the-scences with someone else's Highlight reel" -Steve Furtick

"Comparison is the Theif of Joy" - Franklin Roosevelt.

"Don't compare your chapter 1 to someone else's chapter 20"

"Do not underestimate yourself by comparing yourself to others its our differences that make us unique and beautiful."

"Comparing yourself to others is an act of violence against your authentic self"

Do not compare yourself to others stay focased on your own journey and leave footprints behind."

I think that sums it up guys thats all for now.
