You are quite outstanding. Do you know how amazing you are? There is only one you. There never has been a 'you' before. There never will be another 'you' either. You have been placed in the world, at this time and at this time only. You are completely unique. You think differently. You creative differently. You speak differently. You laugh differently. You dance differently. There is no one like you, darling. And there never will be.
You might see where I'm going with this. It's very easy to look around the world and see all of these wonderfully unique people around us and actually allow ourselves to be intimidated by that. It might make you sad because you wish you were more like them. It might take your confidence away to even shine your own light. It might cause you to even wrong those people, say nasty things but really inside you just wish you were more like them. The thing is sweet one, these horrible feelings that come up in these moments are just a lack of insight to how wonderful and unique you are.
You are also worthy of love.
Comparison is the biggest killer of joy because it produces jealously which doesn't only damage relationships in our lives but it can also damage our relationship with ourselves. Did you know when you feel those feelings you can choose to think something else right away? When you know you are worthy of love and when you know how special you are those feelings of comparison will fade away.
We try to compare ourselves to other people but it's never going to work. Every single person is different and in those moments where we wish we could be like someone else we need to stop, take a deep breathe and love ourselves in that moment because we are enough. We are our own person and that is so beautiful. Celebrate your differences. Celebrate the beauty in others. Be happy for those who have different gifts to you. Remember perfection is a lie. It's not real. Every single person goes through different trials and we all need each other. So spread the love. Spread encouragement. And celebrate people's beauty around you.
What are your gifts in life? What are you really good at? Do those things with all of your heart. Be the best you that you can be. To me the most beautiful people in the world are those that smile, those that have passion, those that are smart, those that love those around them, those that make people around them laugh. That's what beauty is to me. I find people so attractive when who they are is just as beautiful as their outward appearance.
I hope you know how special you are. How beautiful you are. How you are supposed to be unique. I hope you know that you don't need to wish to have someone else's life. I hope you know that you are enough.
