If you fall victim to comparing yourself to others, here are some tips to stop this and feel better about yourself:
- First, try to catch yourself anytime you go into comparison mode. What are you comparing? Why? What’s the point?
- Next, have a positive affirmation that you say to yourself once you catch yourself comparing. Do you always compare yourself to thinner women, or to someone with a more successful career? Say to yourself, “I like my body even though it’s a work in progress,” or “My career is great and I am making it even better.”
- Finally, find compassion for the person you are comparing yourself to. By softening your heart, you’ll be able to step outside of your comparing thoughts and see this person for who they are, not just as being envious of something they have that you do not.
