I've noticed that with Instagram and social media, we only see what's presented to us.
It's one-dimensional. We don't see the underlying layers. Our moment-to-moment experiences.
Remember that you are more than your appearance, your weight, what you do, what you own, what your diploma says, the list continues... It's who you are as a person that matters. It's about your actions and how you treat others. Because we are here for a reason. We are here to share our gifts with others.
You are enough.
You are doing enough.
You are making strides.
BEAUTY IS ONLY SKIN DEEP!!
For a long time I struggled with comparing myself with others. I'd feed myself these messages, "How could I be stressed? My life can't be as hectic as someone else's."
In the process, I never validated what I was going through.
It was only when I started self-compassion techniques that I began to acknowledge what I was feeling without comparing myself with others. Today, I get to embrace myself with self-love.
HOW DO YOU ACKNOWLEDGE WHAT YOU'RE FEELING?!
