"Stop comparing yourself to everyone" this is some excellent advice I once received…
Have you ever compared your appearance to someone else, and unintentionally ended up judging them quite harshly? Do any of these sound familiar?
"She’s so skinny" "that skirt is to short it looks really slutty on her" "Wow why is she wearing so much make up?" "That girls needs to eat a sandwich" "she used to look so pretty and natural"
I used to always say these sort of comments, now that I reflect on them I can see they were a result of my lack of confidence. I was trying to make myself feel better by bad mouthing people who I saw as slimmer and more conventionally attractive then myself.
It was a horrible way of thinking! Even though I still have confidence issues I manage to suppress this judgmental insecure mindset. Comparing myself to other people and setting these impossible standards for the world around me was actually even more damaging to confidence (it also made me come across as unlikable and bitchy!)
Once I’d Discarded this mindset I felt like I’d lifted a massive weight off my shoulders tbh.I just wanted to get this off my chest, I have a much more light-hearted comic planned later on in the week.
