Dear Unusual Girl,
Yes, you are unusual. The wonderful thing about that is that EVERYONE is unusual, as long as each one of us is true to who we are. Being unusual is a beautiful thing.
This is why we can’t compare…this is where comparing ourselves to anyone else, ever…is not a good idea. When we compare, we end up either feeling like we are not as good as someone else, or that we are better than someone else….and does that make any part of our life better?
It might feel good for a moment to feel like we are doing better than someone else is…but this is a slippery slope because we keep on comparing ourselves to everyone else and chances are, we are going to find that there is always someone who we feel is doing better than we are. What a waste of time, dear soul….to spend our minutes, hours, days looking around at everyone else to see how we are doing. When we are wasting time comparing, we are not spending time listening to what our hearts want…and we certainly are not paying attention to the ways we are growing.
YOU ARE JUST RIGHT, right now. There are always going to be examples of others who are doing things all sorts of different ways…and it’s wonderful to use others as inspiration, but never as comparison.
Let’s let others be exactly who they are…and let’s be exactly who we are. And let’s let it all be enough…and let it be awesome and amazing and wonderful. No more comparing.
You are enough, right now….you are still learning, still growing and still becoming, and that is a wonderful thing.
You are so very very very loved.
