I myself have spent hours looking at what others are doing and I have had that mindset of Why them and not me...
I would like to talk about comparing yourself to other people and businesses on social media and what it can mean for your mental health.
Have you ever scrolled through your social media feed and found yourself comparing your success, appearance, or life style to someone else’s? Perhaps you look at people or businesses that seem to have it all, and you feel less than or inferior?
It’s something that many of us struggle with when it comes to social media, and it can potentially have a negative impact on our mental health. It’s easy to fall into the trap of thinking that happiness means having the same things as someone else, but this isn’t always the case.
We need to remember that social media is just a snapshot of someone’s life, and it doesn’t tell the whole story. We don’t know what that person is going through at any given time, or what challenges they’re facing.
It’s important to keep in mind that everyone is on their own journey and will reach success in their own unique way. Comparing yourself to someone else won’t help you get there any faster or easier.
Instead of putting doubt in your head and feeling bad about yourself, use other people and businesses as inspiration to help guide you in the right direction. Ask yourself “What can I learn from this person or business?” or “How can I turn this into motivation to reach my own goals?”
"Stay in your own lane, get those blinkers on."
At the end of the day, it’s important to stay focused on your own goals and try not to get distracted by comparison. The grass is not always greener on the other side, so it’s important to find satisfaction in the journey and celebrate your small wins along the way.
Remember to focus on yourself and what you’re capable of achieving. Don’t get stuck comparing yourself to others, but use them as motivation instead.
All the best
