I’ve realised something…
We can have bad relationships with words and phrases, just as we do people and addictions.
One word I’ve always had a bad relationship with is ‘comparison’.
In today’s day to day, comparison of one another is everpresent with the aid of social media, advertising and even our education system.
We are put up against one another, to be judged on who’s smarter, who’s prettier and who’s got a higher follower count?!
But comparison can be healthy! Comparison is a useful tool for personal growth.
Today I compared my 2km run to my 0km run yesterday.
Today I compared my current priorities to the ones I had 12 months ago.
Today I compared my upcoming solo travel to being controlled by a job 18 months ago.
I’m going to end this with a quote I read this morning:
“The secret to a peaceful world is in the transformation of the individual; we do not need to love perfectly or be fully healed, we just need a critical mass of people who understand that to harm another is to harm oneself”
– Yang Pueblo
All my love,
