“You can’t compare your insides to everyone else’s outsides.” Anne Lamott People tend to put on their best face in public. What we see on the surface doesn’t usually paint an accurate picture of someone else’s life. A smiling face can easily hide a wounded heart. An online photo of someone accompanied by friends can easily mask a lonely soul. You can’t compare yourself to others without knowing the depth of their life. When you focus on how great you think other peoples lives are, you miss out on living the life you’ve been given. Making comparisons leaves you feeling inadequate and incapable. Why torture yourself with such a false measurement of self-worth? Let go of what you feel you’re missing, And start holding onto all the wonderful things you do have. Look past people’s outsides, And embrace the beauty and strength of who you are within.
