I'm here to tell you I used to compare myself to people ALL the time. Still do occasionally.
You know, we all have our moments.
Its hard out here with social media these days!
But it used to be all the time I would constantly compare myself to the classic instagram models of the world, people who took better photos, made better videos! and even my BEST friends! & I would start to think I was never enough, and that my work wasn't good enough! I would delete video after video! and let me tell you its EXHAUSTING. I just wanted to write this to tell you if you do this you're not alone!! in fact, I'm pretty sure almost everyone has done this.
ITS TIME TO STOP. I once read the best thing you have to offer is that you're you! & no one else is you.
PLS don't get stuck in thinking only Alexis ren is "goals" and you have to look that perfect all the time! EVERYONE has insecurities! like I was saying about my best friend I used to compare myself all the time bc any guy ever would be like omg she's so hot can you hook me up and Id get so discouraged! but you have to remember everyone has different taste and if they think your best friend is hotter YOU DIDNT NEED THAT BOY ANYWAYS. (s/o keaton, you babe) :,)
but speaking of keaton ask her I've gotten so much better! and I'm much happier when I'm focusing on my path not others. once you drop the daily comparison I promise you'll feel so much better!
BUT IT DOESN'T END THERE.
not only do I see so much comparison! I see everything becoming such a competition!
it sucks! I wish we could all just appreciate each others work!! SUPPORT EACH OTHER.
This world is tough enough. there are plenty of critics out there. If you see something someone is clearly passionate about SUPPORT THAT! RT their pics. rt their song covers! whatever it is, people we need each other. & if someone has the same passion AWESOME. not only one person can do one thing! do whatever you want to do! don't get jealous! GET MOTIVATED! GET INSPIRED. Go do your thing.
just a little late night thought! I hope you all had an amazing weekend!
I definitely did heres some photos :) ( I also did a photoshoot this weekend photos in the photography section if you wanna check that out )
