Down the comparison wormhole…

Have you ever felt so inept that you wonder how you’ve made it so long?

Kind of like everything you do is not good enough no matter how hard you try?

Have you ever wondered if other people had the same struggles?

Wondered how they are so good at keeping it together?

I find myself here quite often. Especially in the early hours of the morning when the rest of the world is fast asleep.

I know that we all have good days and we all have bad days. I know that a positive mindset is important. I also acknowledge that it has taken me a lifetime to get here so I’m silly to think that it can just be undone almost immediately.

I’m trying to learn to trust the process and to be kind to myself.

I really am my worst critic and it’s not so easy to turn the internal dialogue around.

But, for my well-being and my happiness, I’m going to try. I’m going to work at it everyday.

Starting with listing 5 things I’m grateful for every morning.

I already feel a lot better now, than when I started writing this post.

Thank you for being a safe
space to share my thoughts.

If you can’t find someone to talk to, start journaling. I find it helps me process my thoughts and emotions.

It’s definitely easier to just ignore these emotions, but it’s definitely more beneficial to try and work them out of your system.

Life can be beautiful. I’m so happy that I’m starting to see the beauty again.

We truly are never as alone as we feel,
Shirley
