There was a point in my life when I used to compare myself with others and I felt bad about myself when I looked at others whom I thought were in a much better situation - more material blessings, more attractive, with more friends, etc. But now, I have come to realize that each person has his/her own personal circumstances in life. I have many blessings that others may not have like a happy home and family, wonderful children, peace in relationships, health, etc. What is most important is if we do our part well in all aspects of our life and be grateful for all that we have. Then, we become happy and satisfied. I am now happy and I have stopped comparing myself with others because I have realized that every person has his/her own share of joys, blessings, pains and troubles as well. Life is beautiful. God is fair.

Alright, let's face it. Everyone tends to dislike certain aspect(s) of themselves, be it character or physical looks. Yes, I do have some character traits which I don't like, but that doesn't make me dislike myself entirely. In fact, there are several aspects of myself which I simply adore. Having said that, I think we should still love ourselves despite the few shortcomings which we dislike.

It is difficult to accept reality, but it is not impossible. It is alright to be envious of other people because it can sometimes fuel change. It gives you a goal to strive for. But if you act on your envy, then it becomes an ugly monster that you really have to control.

Welcome to my world. lol I can laugh about this because I moving on from it. I used to be an extreamly jeolous person becase lots of the things other people had that I wanted were completly unatainable to me: natural beauty, born into wealth, and so on. Thinking about things that I couldn't get left me feeling really crummy. Not bright at all - yet I did it for years and so do tons of other people. I was very ill prioritized, I thought those things were the most important things in the world. lol Sad right? The stuff that really matters in life is the stuff you have control over. Take control of what you can control and you be fine. Why spend all day looking in the mirror moaning when you could try to figure out how to make yourself a more moral person? Or studying? Or anything that makes you feel good/happy with yourself during as well as afterwards. If you work on the things that matter, and see positive results in your opinion of yourself and your life, you won't care about trivial stuff like vanity. I personally can become aware of myself, think about who I am, and it doesn't make me feel down at all. I'm still far from perfect when it comes to the things that matter but because I make an effort with them, that makes me feel happy and content. I don't want to crawl out of my skin and be somebody else. I'm perfectly fine. It's easy to accept those parts of reality because I see they are fully acceptable. This may be a bit different for other people, but this is how it works for me and lots of other people I'm talked to about this.
