Body Comparison – the destructive addiction!

Body Comparison

Body Comparison is what will kill your body dreams faster than sugar ever will!

Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we’re not. 

☢ Body Comparison is one of the most toxic things we do to ourselves on a daily basis. In some cases more toxic than processed sugar will ever be because comparing effects your mental, emotional & spiritual state.

This obsessive & addictive behaviour is altering neurons in your brain and it is shifting thought patterns to become destructive & damaging.

Comparing use to be used as a benchmark to measure ones progress towards our goals……however, back then we were actually comparing ourselves to REAL people and REAL LIVES and it was not done obsessively on a daily bases through a screen.

I believe it has become an addiction of our modern times. We are addicted to perfect images of others and use these images to compare up against our own lives…..our own bodies.

The sad reality is that many of these images aren’t even real & there are hidden stories behind them that are not revealed.

I‘ll be honest, I use to get caught up in it so often in the past….comparing my body to those who looked so “perfect” all the time!!! It would break down my soul and kill my spirit, feeling that I was not good enough no matter how hard I worked towards my goals. I ended up feeling like such a “failure” every day and like they say, the more you believe something to be true, the more it will become your truth! I wasn’t a failure but I was comparing myself to the impossible everyday and as a results, I felt like one.

I would see their progress, or final results, and I would compare it to mine.

We are all so different & we progress at different stages. Everybody has their own strength and weaknesses and it’s only when you choose to accept everything you are ( and are not) that you will truly succeed.

How can one compare the ocean to the mountain? They are both exquisitely beautiful as well as incredibly powerful. Why compare 2 such amazing creations when you can love them both?!? 🌊🗻💕Like the ocean and the mountains, you are also both beautiful and powerful AND you are perfect just as you are in this moment….. NOW .

It took some real hard work to get myself out of that….but as soon as I made that shift from obsessive comparing to that of conscious observing, so much started to change for the better.

My body wasn’t my battle field anymore…..it wasn’t that constant disappointment anymore…..it was MY beautiful masterpiece that I was creating in my own time, regardless of where anyone else was on their journey.

Do not compare, you don’t need to and it’s not worth the heartache. You are exactly where you need to be on your own personal journey with your body. You have all you need to create the confidence, self love & body you dream of. No one else in the world is like you, and that is AMAZING don’t you think?!

Is Body Comparison something you are struggling with? Are you finding that your self-esteem & confidence is at an all time low when you come off social media?

You are not alone and it’s something I urge you to address as soon as you can so that you can start achieving your dreams and living your best life with confidence & freedom to be authentically YOU!
