Stop Comparing and Start Living

Have you ever compared yourself, and where you are in life, to others? Has it made you feel pretty bummed? This is a major struggle I’m facing right now. I’m 25, and I don’t have a house, I don’t have a boyfriend, and basically I don’t fully have my shit together yet. So for the past few days I’ve really been working hard to try and put things into perspective. 

There is always going to be a time where someone has more, or better things in life. It doesn’t matter what I do. All I need to do is think really hard about what is important to me, and go from there. I may not have a house. But right now I’m sitting on my balcony with my freshly planted flowers and carefully hung twinkle lights, writing this while my puppy sleeps beside me. I may not have a boyfriend, but I have some of the best friends a girl could ask for. I may not have my financial situation fully together, but I’ve been on some of the most amazing trips and had the best experiences. If that’s what makes me happy, then I need to stop comparing, and start living!

If you’re reading this and it’s ringing a bell, I’d love to hear how you deal with this struggle, in the comments below!

Until next time,

Liv
