Hey hey hey!
Our exams were postponed by one week o, but we give God glory still.
Today, I’d like to deal with comparison.
I remember Saturday evening, as I cleaned Church with other Sanitation members; I started comparing myself to a friend there.
“See, I’m trying to lose all excess weight and she looks like this. How unfair! She probably doesn’t even workout once a month and still has flat stomach. Maybe if I take my workout more seriously, my arms can reduce like hers.”
Please, was it the lady that sent me message?
I later caught myself and sent jealously out of my head.
Will I go round wishing to look like everyone?
Plus, I can’t tell if they really put in work into looking the way they look. So, why be such a hater!
Let’s face it, we all have different physique.
Embrace yours and love yourself.
Work on getting fit if you need to, but stop comparing!
I have a friend who’s super slim and tall. I’m slim and tall too (hahaha.)
Please, it depends on what slim and tall means to you, so move on. 😒😛
I know that if I workout from now till I’m worn out, I’d not look like her; and sincerely, I don’t want to!
So, what’s the point of losing sleep over it?
Funny thing is, someone still called me in the Library yesterday to ask if I was using drugs to get fit. She knew me in level 100 and didn’t know why I looked so different.
The same me that was jealous about someone else’s arms and stomach was being asked how I lost weight.
Sometimes, the male humans look at us and wonder if we’re even from this planet, but they fail to realize that a lot of us fight comparison demons.
The enemy almost made me kill myself over this.
Sweetheart, you’re oh so beautiful!
And you don’t have to look like sososo to realize it.
You don’t have to dress, speak, or makeup like someone in order to gain acceptance. And if you don’t learn to deal with this, it can lead to other deep rooted issues.
You’d resent yourself and others will take that negative energy from you. People tend to treat us how we treat our own selves. At least, most people.
If you fail to love yourself and accept God’s perfect love for you, jealousy will take root.
There will always be someone you’d be envious of because you’ve not loved yourself.
I watched this video sometime back and was super enlightened.
It made me sit and ask, ‘Bolaji, how would you describe yourself if you were asked how you look?’
I’d probably exaggerate the bad and leave out the good.
Watch the video to better understand.
You’re more beautiful than you think.
So, begin to act like it!
Plus, if you take out time to work on the areas you don’t really like, you’d become more confident.
I started getting compliments about dressing better when I lost weight; and I still haven’t hit my goal.
If you want smaller arms so much, then work for it; not hate for it. Lol. (This is for me.)
Again, I’m telling you that you’re more beautiful than you think!
Happy new month!
Be mindful of your crown of favour this month and LET GOD LEAD!
Note to self- Don’t sleep the month of May away.
Have a beautiful week and month ahead.
