I always try to treat myself how I treat others and how I want them to treat me. Sure I slip-up sometimes. But, who doesn't? These lessons are there to be learned from, and they are serious lessons in life.
You can either judge and compare yourself with others, or you can see yourself separate from everyone else. One person can't be compared to/with the next We all come from different backgrounds, different places and it isn't fair to judge yourself using somebody else's template.
It's great that we are all different. We can learn from each other, and add to our own personality, rather than adapt ourselves to fit somebody else's image. That's a big part of why I decided to stop buying cheap, celeb gossip magazines. It wasn't healthy for me to even flick through them. Now if I am going to invest my money in magazines I buy Running or Fitness magazines. Magazines that I can learn healthy habits from, magazines that aren't going to put me down and make me feel inadequate.
Here are some reminders, some positive thoughts to remember today and beyond. It's good to refer back to them at times where you are feeling low.
Stop comparing yourself to others. You are the only one, there's not another you.
