#TuesdayTidbit - Don't Compare

Just don't! Stop! Don't compare yourself to others - not their writing, their blog stats, their number of followers, the way that they always look put together while you look like you just washed up on the shore from a shipwreck, the miles they log, the pounds they lift, and their finish times. Just stop because it's a slippery slope down a very dark path.


This is the conversation that I have with myself far too often. I am
a competitive person. I just am. And in some ways it's a good thing. It pushes me to push myself. And looking at others' accomplishments can be very inspiring and motivating.

But when I move over into 'comparison' mode, then I lose my joy. And inspiration becomes defeat.



So today's #TuesdayTidbit is don't compare! You are enough!

  1. I think competitive is great. But we should be competing with ourselves. As long as we are improving, progressing, moving in a positive direction, it's a win. Great reminder.

    1. I agree! And I'm having to remind myself that I can't compare myself to 'before' injury but have to set a new starting point.

  2. SO true :) I am inspired by others and sometimes it makes me want to push my self, but I am old and I know my limits.
    I am only competitive against myself and my own stats. Sometimes even that is tiring lol

  6. good reminders. Thanks for reminding us all to go at our own pace and stop comparing to others. It might be a little easier said than done though!
