Comparing = stealing

So I’m sitting on my couch, looking at our adorable Christmas tree with my daughter on my lap and my hubby is watching Star Wars and I’m over here having a little pity party! What’s my pity party about? While my hubby is watching Star Wars (I’m trying to be interested…but…I’m bored)…so I decided to get on the Facebook. Immediately, I’m reading other’s posts, updates, seeing pictures and what do I do? I compare…I compare myself, my life, my everything to everyone else and who suffers..ME!

If you saw the post title…COMPARING = STEALING…how you might ask? When I compare myself to others, I lose  a part of myself in that my self esteem drops, my self worth is hindered. When I compare my things to other people’s thing, I don’t count my blessings and I become less grateful. When I compare my life to others, I don’t see that my life is exactly what it is suppose to be. So when I compare, I steal from ME! My life isn’t perfect but where would the fun be if it was all daisies and roses…without rain, there would be no rainbow!
