My husband was laughing at us. He said "all you women are all the same! You all think the worst about yourself and sit and console the other while she is pouting." (not his words, I couldn't remember exactly what he said. This is the gist of it because I assure you, it would not have sounded the same! lol)
Then later that night he told me I should write about that. What do we think of ourselves as women? Why are we always so negative?? I saw this quote on twitter today:
"Someone will always be prettier. Someone will always be smarter. Someone will always be younger. But they will never be you..."
Why do we always compare?? Why can't we just be us and be okay with that? I don't know about you women, but sometimes I will get dressed feeling cute and good and then when I come across a girl I feel like looks better than me, I feel insecure. Like what I chose to put on wasn't good enough. Like somehow, I will never be as cute as the next girl. UGH!! SO pathetic!
I don't want to live that life. There has to be a healthy balance, right? A balance where you can feel like you look good and are proud of the way you put yourself together, without being over-confident and cocky. Without trying to make others feel not as good about themselves just so you can feel better. And don't lie, ladies, we've all done it!
So here is my challenge for you (and me) today: Be confident in yourself! Be sure about you! Don't worry about what everyone else is doing or wearing. Just be concerned about what works for you. DON'T COMPARE!!! It's unhealthy and can never end good.
What are some ways you feel confident about yourself? Do you have any ways that help you not compare yourself to other women or other situations? Let's share them! Encourage each other!! We all struggle with the same kinds of things in different forms. And if someone says they aren't insecure at all, they are the worst ones!
I hope you ladies have a lovely day! Rock whatever you're wearin'! Feel good about yourself!! It will shine through!
