Comparison- the worst enemy of individuality
Todays post only consists of one picture I took a few months ago, but it has a lot of meaning to me. I took it to raise awareness for self- love. As I explained in my last post, although I am quite a shy person, I have a strong oppinion, especially when it comes to topics like this.
Since we are living in a society, where social media platforms are able to create the image of perfect looking people and lives, the boundaries between real and fake are blurred. There are a lot of very influencial people, a lot of us, including myself, look up to without even knowing. I sometimes caught myself changing my life the way a certain person lives and that's how individuality gets lost. The thing I struggle the most with is accepting myself. My world is ruled by comparison with others and they all seem so perfect, but it isn't exactly true, because the image I see is how they want others to see them. Is it so hard to be your true self? I guess, we sometimes don't want to allow us to love ourselves. We are scared of being called selfish and that is the reason why we need to put a "mask" on. Hide behind the perfect image. With comparison as our worst enemy.
The next time you get upset by seeing a picture of another person, remember that you are unique and beautiful im every single way. You are the reason someone smiles today. Tale care and spread love.
