This was perfect timing because I was thinking about this topic for my Dear Twenty Something Series. Whenever you are feeling down or feel like someone has it better than you I urge you to STOP comparing yourself to others NOW!

I think that sometimes when we find ourselves comparing ourselves with others we might actually be questioning what we want for ourselves. For example, if you are comparing yourself to someone who is fit and lives a healthy lifestyle don’t compare yourself.
