You are an Original

God looks upon each of us, individually, as perfectly and wonderfully made. Let’s not get uprooted by comparing ourself to others. I would lay money on the fact that what we see in material possessions and the supposed success of others, is merely a façade to cover what is really going on underneath.

“What makes this constant assessing and comparing so self-defeating is that we are often comparing our lives, our marriages, our families, and our communities to unattainable, media-driven visions of perfection, or we’re holding up our reality against our own fictional account of how great someone else has it. Nostalgia is also a dangerous form of comparison. Think about how often we compare ourselves and our lives to a memory that nostalgia has so completely edited that it never really existed: “Remember when…? Those were the days…” (Brene Brown)
