We’ve been conditioned to look around us and believe that we’re in competition with everyone else
There Is No Competition

This couldn’t be more true. It’s definitely a big drawback of the competitive, capitalistic and materialistic culture we live in. Your life really changes when you realize you don’t have to endlessly compete with everyone.

A good friend of mine suffered from severe anxiety a few years back. It was so bad she didn’t get out of bed for a few weeks. When I moved back home, I had a panic attack and asked her how she got through it. She told me that a useful tool for her was to stop herself every time she either compared herself or thought about “where she should be in life”.

I always remind myself that everyone has problems, no matter how much we have or how much we’ve accomplished. We find happiness by loving ourselves first.

Thank you for the read!
