We must stop comparing our show reel to another person’s show reel. Their show reel isn’t ours, so it would be wrong to draw comparisons as if it were.
Our lives may not start out perfectly, but as we continue to compare, we will spend a lifetime drawing comparisons. Instead we must start to believe in ourselves, believe in our abilities; believe we’re good enough, distance ourselves from the negativity and work on strengthening our inner core.
We must also move away and move on from those who spend their lives bringing us down, making us feel guilty for how we feel and our insecurities. Insecurities are nothing more than irrational thoughts.
Because we don’t stop to look at our lives, what we have, or who we have around us, it’s easy to see why those insecurities stay irrational and why we stay insecure. Insecure feelings on the inside will always mirror how we cope on the outside.
So, use reflection as a tool to think about your life. Begin to look at life from the outside in, as if you were looking at another person’s life, reading their story back. Be honest about what you see and own what’s yours.
Choose to see yourself and your experiences head on, only keep what belongs to you and let go of the rest. By looking at yourself objectively, you can begin to build new sturdier foundations.
The more you continue to believe in yourself, the more you will continue to emotionally grow, the less insecure you will stay. When your inner core heals, your insecurities will lessen, and the comparisons will stop.
