Stay in Your Lane
How often do we look over our shoulder to see what the person next to us is doing?
How often do we allow someone else’s successes or failures stop us from seeing the road stretched out ahead of us?
I would say for most of us, it happens often.
We live in a world of ENVY. Career envy, kitchen envy, children envy, food envy, image envy. You name it. There is an envy for it! And with all the platforms of social media, envy is taken to an extreme. We are bombarded by “Photoshopped lives.” Edited images and narratives that tap into what we aspire to but what we don’t have. Thus begins the uglies of “comparisonitis”
Comparisonitis = the compulsion to compare one’s accomplishments to another’s to determine relative importance, etc.
Comparison leads to insecurity and can rob you of your self-worth, self-image, your relationships, your marriage and the way your children learn to value themselves.
Comparison steals your JOY!
So today instead of allowing envy to steal our joy, let’s use this energy to understand what it is we really want. Stop looking at what other people are doing and start looking at what you are achieving.
We all have our own road ahead. Our journey is NOT theirs. Our destination will be completely different. And our DRIVE has nothing to do with them.
Keep eyes on the road, stop looking sideways and stay in your lane.
