Happy Monday everyone! I hope your weekend was relaxing and restful!
This week I want to talk about striving to be a better version of yourself, and how you are the only person in this world you should try to be better than.
You can spend your entire life trying to be better than other people, or even just trying to be like other people. But comparing yourself to others is never healthy. It’s like comparing a fish to a dog. They are extremely different, and if one were to try to be like the other, it would only result in failure.
By trying to be be like others, you are setting yourself up for failure. And while there is no harm in striving to be a better person than the majority of humanity, to be kind, thoughtful, generous, empathetic; but this should be seen as improving yourself and not an attempt to be better than others.
Self improvement is an inside job, as is happiness. If you want to be kinder, do so because you want to make yourself a better person. Because at the end of the day, there will always be someone out there that is better than you in some aspect. They may be smarter, faster, stronger, more generous, and that’s 100% okay. If you are constantly trying to race to be better than everyone else you are going to get burned out. But if you do just one thing a day that makes you a better person than you were yesterday, you’re already moving in the right direction, and you can only keep moving forward.
till next time,
