Do you ever compare yourself to others and feel like being yourself is just not good enough? "Comparison is the thief of joy," said Theodore Roosevelt. ...Well, I'm going to add: and giver of anxiety, to that quote... 😖
Today I'm struggling with comparing myself to others who have the "gift of gab". Sometimes, I just have nothing to say, and honestly it makes me totally insecure and anxious that I'm "boring". So what does this have to do with downward dog?
Today, instead of turning to food or something else to ease the anxiety and get over myself, I turned to yoga. 🙏
The focused breathing and physical exertion helps to get rid of anxious energy, and bring back positivity.
I encourage you to try it too, if you find yourself in the same mind frame at times.
And at the end of it, remind yourself (and I'm telling myself this right now) that you are uniquely YOU, and you are SPECIAL.
Trying to be somebody you are not is a waste of energy, because the important people in your life love you for who YOU ARE ❤️
