    Great post. Comparing yourself to others is such a waste of time, but sadly we don’t realise this until a lot later down the road. I was guilty of doing the same for years on end and as you point out, you’re the only one who suffers, not the person or people you’re hung up on. We all have our strengths, so time to celebrate them instead of beating yourself up!

    Yes! I get all of this! I tried to explain this mentality to my boyfriend and he just didn’t really get it, I’m not sure if that’s a guys thing or a him thing, but I do think that girls are trained to compare themselves (negatively) way more

    Really like this post and loved reading through it. I think it’s just natural that we compare to each other, it’s just something that we’ve done since ever, but like you said it shouldn’t determine us.

    Urgh Vix! You’ve done it again! Hit the nail on the head and got me screaming yes. I’m terrible for comparing myself but it never has once brought me any joy. Just, as you rightly said, bitterness. I will be making more of an effort to focus how I can change this-not out of spite but out of pride for myself.

    I love all of your posts, but this one really resonated with me! I’m always, always comparing myself to others – particularly when it comes to guys. I’m always thinking how much better other people are (even in blogging), and it really is horrible. Thank you for this, it was such a lovely read! Hopefully, I will be more mindful of what I say to myself, in the near future.

    Another great and thought provoking post Vix. It really gave me an insight in different things and I just want to say that you are beautiful. I think guys compare themselves with other guys too, but on a different level and less intense, if that makes sense?

    Keep doing you pal!

    Gosh, I needed to read this so much today. Thank you! I can go for weeks feeling awesome about myself then it only takes two seconds for comparison to kick in and for everything to flip reverse. I need to remember what I’ve done and how far I’ve come. You, my lady, are fucking awesome.

    You’re bloody brilliant Vix, you know that? So much of this post resonates so hard with me – I feel comparison has screwed me over royally over the past few years and I really need to knock it on the head. With a mallet.

    This post really resonates with me! I’m glad I was able to come by your blog and read this post. I used to have a lot of self-doubt and compare myself with other people. I realized that it’s really unhealthy and doesn’t help improve one’s life. I remind myself everyday that everyone’s different–everyone’s dealing with a different challenge and everyone’s living a different life. It’s really important to be accepting of every fiber of our being. Thanks again for this post!
