The destructive habit of comparing ourselves to others
By Emma Palova
Lowell, MI- I must admit I don’t have this problem. I don’t know who I would compare myself to? And mainly I don’t know why I would want to do that in the ever-changing world of trends. Today on twitter trending could be Justin Bieber, Billy Bush or whoever.
But, I know most people do. They want to so desperately fit into whatever just flies at the moment. So, then they have to refit to a new trend. And they’re never themselves.
They’re so afraid what other people are going to say about them. It’s called insecurity or conformity.
You don’t have to compare yourself to others to feel confident and secure. It’s your own set of values that matters. You stand behind them and defend them, not other people’s values.
Establish a set of values that matters to you and stick behind them. Don’t sway away or wander off on a tangent only to imitate others.
List your values today on a piece of paper and carry it with you no matter where you go.
My set of values:
Your values will carry you forward in good and bad times, just like in marriage.
