In today’s very online and digital world, it’s only natural for you to compare yourself to others. However, it’s also incredibly unhealthy. If you’re someone that natural looks at others on social media and envies their lives, you’re only ever harming yourself. You’re telling yourself that you are not worthy, and what they have is better than what you have. But this isn’t true. So here’s how you’re going to stop yourself from doing it.
- Focus On Yourself
The very first step is simple. You need to stop focusing all of your time, energy, and attention on them, and you need to give it to yourself instead. Why think about what they are doing and what they have, when you could be concentrating on your strengths and achieving your own goals?
- Think About Your Future
To do this, you’re going to want to think about your future. Do you know what you want to achieve with your life? Are you confident that you can do it? Sit down and really think about what you want from your life, and what you can do to make sure that you get it. When you’re busy planning out your own life, you’ll have less time to worry about the lives of others!
- Tell Yourself The Truth
And the main reason why you need to do this, is because you often see and believe what you want to when it comes to what’s online. When really there’s a lot of fake news, as the below infographic shows, and phonies out there! So tell yourself a truth and remember that a lot of what you see isn’t real.
