No Comparison

It’s easy to doubt yourself, especially when it seems like no one appears to “see” you. Maybe you have watched others applaud someone else, or you see someone doing things similar to you and you believe that they are “better” than you. It is normal to feel that way sometimes, but that should never be your way of life. Admittedly, this is something I have struggled with a lot. That is mainly because for a long time I struggled with believing I was “good enough”. Once I finally came to a point of realizing that I am who I am, and that is good enough, things got easier. That does not mean that I never struggled with it from that point on, but I at least had a foundation from which I could build; however, I have struggled with comparing myself with others who seemingly have more support. I have even struggled with thinking that no one would listen to me if they could find a better option. Recently though, I had to remind myself that everyone has someone to reach, and there are certain people whom I am meant to touch. As such, there is no need to compare myself to anyone else, or to think less of myself because of what others are drawn to. In the same token, no one should feel like they are not good enough, or that they are not relevant based on the popularity of someone else. There are times when others will jump on the “bandwagon” of someone else, but that does not make you unnecessary. That just means that those who may not “follow” you are meant for someone else. Spend time discovering your voice and your power, and use the precious moments of your life touching those you are meant to touch. Invest in your own greatness, and make life meaningful. You are necessary “for such a time as this”. When it gets rough, and you start doubting yourself, remember that who you are is “magical,” relevant, phenomenal, unique, and amazing. Be you now.
