When life gives you lemons..

You say "Fuck the lemons" and bail.

It’s sad that we live in a world where we feel the need to compare ourselves with others. I find that I compare myself to others on a daily basis - friends, family, strangers on the street. I don’t feel good enough in a lot of ways. Not thin enough, not pretty enough, not smart, not funny enough, not hard working enough. She’s thinner than me, therefore by society’s standards she must be prettier than me. I’m thinner than her, so I’m prettier than her. I want someone else’s body, someone else’s hair, someone else’s perfect straight teeth. I fall short of the person I want to be on a daily basis, I live life in a cloud of self loathing and self disappointment. I ate too much, I hate myself, I missed a workout, I hate myself. Even when I’m smiling, I’m hating something about me. I can wear the prettiest thing in my wardrobe, makeup and hair done, but snap a picture of me and I’m depressed all over again. I hate hating myself. I hate comparing myself to others. But it seems it’s inescapable. I compare myself to my best friends, my sisters, aunts and cousins. No matter how many times you compliment me, it doesn’t change how I feel about me. This isn’t a cry for help, this is just something I have been thinking about for a while. I know that to feel better I have to work hard, I have to change habits, I have to learn to love myself. I know that I am a determined person and that even if it takes me years I CAN be the person that I want to be. But damn you society, damn you. #imperfect #insecure #trying #workingonit #society #youareallbeautiful
