They say that it’s easy to feel better when you watch someone else feeling more miserable, and it’s easy not to feel pretty if you bumped into a more attractive person, and you know what, yes they are right! only it’s a double edge sword… You can hurt yourself while doing that.
I’ll give you an example from a question I asked, on my first post on this blog:
When was the last time you looked at yourself in the mirror and you were completely satisfied with what you saw? do you accept everything about yourself everyday?
Before you continue reading… Think through the first 2 paragraph, and try to conclude what this week’s tip would be…
Come on… Try it before you continue reading.
I’m curious to learn what your answer was, so if you can comment on this page or send me a msg on my Facebook Page…
Ok here it goes,
Instead of checking how good or bad your life is by looking at others, you should do it when you look at yourself; Some of the best times of our life may never come back to us, not because life is cruel, but simply because the phase where we could party all night and sleep for 1 hour and then jump up and continue our day, needed to end at your 20s, and when you’re 40, that won’t be pretty applicable anymore (Because of our body structure/Energy of course).
is that a bad thing? not particularly, Noone says that you should keep on partying all your life, but I would say to look at your life TODAY, and realize where you are RIGHT NOW, and compare it with Where you would want to be and where you were… I Wouldn’t normally suggest that someone would crawl back to the past, EXCEPT if He/She would be looking at the future at the same time.
You could not like yourself right now, remember you can change… and you can have a great Life… it’s in your hands… not in anyone else’s,
“Holding onto anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”
So it’s time you look at yourself and check out how your can change… and if you need ideas, it’s ok to look at others… but don’t let others make you feel inferior just because they are doing better than you are, you really have no idea what they might be going through.
Enjoy your Week!
