Sorry guys but I must share this with all of you, beacuse I know I’m not the only one!
I have always struggled with comparing myself in others.
Jealously sprouting as I took in the so-called perfection of those who appeared better
than me as I silently assessed the many flaws that made up my own being.
Needless to say, I’ve always been on the low-end when it comes to self-esteem and self-confidence.
All of us have problems.
But here’s the thing: we don’t actually know what everyone’s problems are.
We don’t the darkest parts of them because some people push that so far down, it’s hidden from everyone’s point of view.
Most of us only seen snapshots of the lives of the people that we’re envying.
Depression, eating disorders, self-harm, anxiety, and other harmful behaviors and thoughts can lurk within anyone.
No amount of money or “looks” can spare you from that.
We can’t be others, and we need to accept that.
We are our own person, and even though we might not feel like it all the time,
that right there is something to be grateful for.
Love yourself, because your are the best exactly as you are!

Let’s go to fashion now.
Don’t buy as many statement pieces, buy more basics.
You can then have fun with accessories. People have a lot of clothes that they buy on a whim,
pieces that are cool only in that moment.
That moment passes, and you have nothing to wear.
Clothes shopping should involve as much strategic planning as financial planning.
Think about what you are likely to wear, and what is easy to wear.
A black shirt will go with a lot more than a printed shirt.
Don’t take the fun out of shopping just add a little practicality,
and you will find you have more to wear.
