BEAUTY&LIFESTYLE// SMALL STEPS DON'T COMPARE
It is difficult sometimes to be confident when you're surrounded by people that are successful, beautiful or happier than you feel. After all if you're struggling away to get a job or find someone special, seeing someone achieve that with ease can make it seem you're not good enough. Well this week's small steps is about combatting that. Far too often I'll see people losing weight faster than me or getting better grades and I'll feel low about my own achievements but truly am I ever seeing the full picture? These people are on their own journeys with their own struggles. They might be cramming in studies until the early hours of the morning and then exercising like crazy in the few hours in the evening.
The point is every one has their own journey, so try and separate your own. Don't compare, just support those around you and keep taking little steps to improve your own efforts. My small step will be to look at what I have achieved already and work towards making my own life that bit better. I'm blessed with a supportive family and friends that I can ask for help and offer help to in return.
If you're ever needing a little pick up that won't set you back then watch a feel good movie, go for a walk to clear your head and remember every day is a chance to make your life better. Sorry if this was a preachy post, it felt good to put down in writing something close to heart.
