You are more than enough! Don’t waste your time comparing yourself to others when you can spend it on loving yourself.
It is very easy to get caught in the constant cycle of taking care of everyone else but yourself. You may be called the best wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend on the face of the earth but at the end of the day, are you doubting if you did all that you could do? The worse thing you could ever do is compare yourself to someone else’s supposed happiness, health, wealth, family dynamic or career. I say “supposed” because the truth is, you don’t know what they face very day and they may be looking at you wishing they had your life. Don’t waste your time wishing you had more when you already have more than enough. I’m not telling you to not aspire to be better, I’m saying, be a better version of YOU not a sorry looking copy of someone else. We are far from perfect and we have so much more to learn. If we can accept the facts of who we are and work within those parameters…loving ourselves would so much easier.
