I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence. – Frederick Douglass
How many times have these thought crossed our minds? Comparing ourself to someone else or that tinge of jealousy because someone is getting so much recognition and we feel like “I’m working my ass off at this and no one notices. We really need to stop fighting against who we are.
Our biggest rival in life is ourself, yes that person inside you that is in search of who you should/want to be. Instead of nurturing and growing in who we are, we sometimes fixate on what other people are doing and accomplishing that we devalue our own worth and what we bring to this life.
How often do we tell/ convince ourselves that what we have inside is not good enough to make it or the dreaded comparison…not as good as so and so. The next time these thoughts surface, don’t give them the time of day and go about the business of being you. Be who you were called to be.
Stop fighting against yourself because you are freaking awesome!
