Social media is a very powerful place. We share every aspect of our lives – from our daily routines, to our loved ones, to vacations we take, the homes we live in… the list goes on and on. You can head to a stranger’s profile at any time and within minutes know intimate details of their life.
Through this access, it’s easy to fall into the hole of comparing your own life to others. We may begin to feel less than because such and such person with 500k followers has the greatest skin, clothes, friends, and lives inside a perpetually sunny day. Why can’t we look like that? Why can’t we have that job, that car, that opportunity?
But the truth is, we are comparing our entire lives to someone else’s highlight reel. And even still, the accomplishments that exist on this highlight reel don’t take away our own chance to have the life we want to live.
Use your energy productively by narrowing your focus. Here are five ways to stay in your own lane of self LOVE, and out of someone else’s lane of comparison.
This will not only help you keep a sharper focus on social media, but will help elevate your entire life. Comparison, as they say, is the thief of joy, and it can stem from insecurities or our feelings of self-worth. When we come to realize that we are ALL just out there trying to chase our dreams and live our best lives, it makes you see that we are all on a level playing field and are in control of how we approach each day.
