When I'm feeling good about a work project I've completed, I'll inevitably read an article about someone who started their own company or who is doing something so beyond what I'm doing.
When I clean our apartment and get fresh flowers and look around satisfied, I'll inevitably see an Instagram living room or visit friends in their new apartment and I'll come home and feel like I'm returning to a dorm room.
When I manage to blow dry my hair and put together something to wear that I like, I'll inevitably see someone else at work who looks more put together or who has the boots or jacket I've been coveting.
I've started to ask myself what it would be like if I didn't compare myself - because I always lose - and instead allowed myself to admire the other person's accomplishment or living room or jacket without diminishing myself and my self worth. I have a feeling it'll be easier said than done but worth the effort.
