Whether we like it or not, we have to accept we have been in this space before. The only reason we compare is because we like how someone else’s life looks, more than how our lives feel.

Jobs, relationships, travel, house… the list is long. All comparison does is makes us go into a deep burrow of loneliness and we think when we have it better that burrow will be nicely lit up.

It won’t. It never well.

Understanding the difference between how something ‘looks’ to how something ‘feels’ is what we need to learn.

Society has done a fabulous job of convincing us that what we see is way more significant than how we feel. And now we have Social Media to make us even more miserable.

We don’t know what someone’s inner world is like, and we assume how they look is how they feel. Learning to understand, navigate and work with our feelings and become more aware of our inner world in a conscious and compassionate way is HOW TRUE JOY UNFOLDS IN OUR LIVES.

De-program that brain that makes you question your worth based on how the world looks. Trust your own operating system!
