Less comparison, more compassion



Comparison stings. 
Compassion motivates you to go out of your way to help others. 

Comparison negatively affects your confidence and self worth.
Compassion focuses on others instead of yourself, trying to understand another person's perspective. 


If you find yourself in a daily competition with people who make you feel inadequate, direct your energy elsewhere and start caring about the things and people in life that give you a bigger meaning and purpose. 

There are far too many people in this world who experience sadness, stress, pain, disappointments, insecurities, anxiety or depression on a daily basis, which is far from the picture-perfect life that is often depicted on social media.

Compassion helps us recognize the good in people and reminds us that we all want to be loved, safe, healthy and happy. Be mindful of where you spend your energy.

With less comparison and more compassion, you will put yourself into a world where there is less judgement and more acceptance. Although many people are taught to put other people first, the best source of compassion can be found from within. When you are kind to yourself, you can be more compassionate to others.
