“Comparison is the thief of joy.” Far too many times I hear ladies compare themselves to others they see. I really try to break this cycle in my fitness groups. It’s so unfair and unhealthy.
You can’t compare yourself to someone else. You don’t know where they are in their journey. You don’t know how long I’ve been working on themselves.
Yes, I’ve had 4 kids. Yes, I’m in great shape- probably the best of my life. BUT, I’ve been working on me since 2012, and guess what?
I still have loose skin. There are still things that jiggle when I run, and you know what? That’s life- and I will never again subject myself to looking at another woman and comparing our progress.
Instead, we need to cheer each other on and life each other up. It’s hard enough out there without the constant comparison. Let’s love who we are and focus on self-care❤️
