Compare You to You Instagram

This Is the Only Person You Should Be Comparing Yourself To

As women, we have grown up learning to compare ourselves to other women we see — mostly those in magazines, TV, and other media — but also to the women we know. We say things like, "I wish my thighs were as thin as hers," or "I wish I had her firm butt," or "she doesn't have a flabby belly like mine."

We beat ourselves up because we don't look like so-and-so, but guess what?! We shouldn't! We are our own unique, glorious, individual selves, and we love the message posted by Nichole Freeman that says, "Stop wasting time comparing yourself to this girl and that girl on social media. Stay focused on YOUR journey and you will be surprised what you can get!"

It's so true. The only person you should compare yourself to is you, and you should always strive to be your best self, which probably looks way different than everyone else's. Just remember to always be kind to yourself, celebrate when you reach your goals (no matter how small), and accept the ups and downs you may have on your journey to a more awesome you.
