“…And remember that comparing your reality to other people’s causes much unnecessary stress.”
From Creative Numerology on WordPress.
It’s an easy thing to forget, isn’t it? Especially these days with social media and media in general bombarding us constantly of what others are doing with their lives. I’m not saying it’s a good or a bad thing – it’s just a “thing” in our society now.
I like the ability of being able to see what my friends or random strangers are getting up to. If you take it in the right light then it can be motivation or encouragement; give us ideas of how to expand our own experience.
Difficulties make comparing our lives to other’s pretty much a given. It takes a strong nerve not to do it. It’s universal.
The quote is right. It does cause unnecessary stress.
Sometimes the only way I get through my trials is by believing that eventually my life will become what I’ve always seen it as in my mind.
Sometimes, when I’m going through those trials I have to disconnect myself from others even if their messages are positive because I’m in no state to receive.
I step back because everything is relative and I don’t want to put pressure on myself to force anything.
Inside I believe you know when the time is right and when you’re still in your cocoon becoming the butterfly. If you’re still cocooning then take everything you see others doing with a grain of salt. Not in the sense that it’s not real, or it’s faked, but with the sense of knowing that one day you’ll be living up to your true potential.
Enjoy the reality of others and respect where you’re at. That’s all I can really say. I know how hard it is, believe me.
Today on the farm was cold and windy. I went through another level of healing that was draining and I know I’m still not out the other side yet but I’ll sleep off what I’ve done and try to face the next stage tomorrow.
