I hope these mantras will help you to stop comparing yourself to others.

Ever since I have stopped comparing myself to others, I find myself liberated from the fear that I am not enough. Today, I am contented with myself instead of looking at what I lack as compared to others. It is a journey that you have to be willing to take, and it will be so worth it!-Anonymous

2024 update. (I changed somethings)….

I wanted to add a quick update..

  • I literally tell people to stop putting others on pedestals and put themselves up there. There’s nothing wrong with seeing what someone else has and admiring them or aspiring to do something similar. But to want what others have to the point of jealousy. Remember what you put out you will get back. STOP THIS low entity behavior (and no, some people can’t help themselves despite me saying that haha). Appreciate what you have more than wanting what someone else has.
  • Right now I’m in a place where I’m unbothered and I don’t care. I will not deal with anything I don’t have to, and I’m very picky on who I let in my sanctuary nowadays. The peace I have now is worth everyone and everything I lost. For my own good, I stopped caring for a lot of people from my school years. I stopped seeing others as important, even those who have a grandiose view of themselves. I’m very chill, laidback and lowkey. I stay in my lanes and mind my own business. I’ve focused on myself so much people wanna know how I leveled up. Re-read this paragraph over and over. Haven’t heard from me lately? It’s a sign I’m working on something..
  • I’m at the point where I don’t want what my peers have, and I hope they don’t want what I have. You can’t have what’s mine, and I don’t want what’s yours. Bye Felicia.

“I am capable of doing hard things”, “I am worthy of being loved, cherished, and celebrated”, “I am growing and learning every single day”, and “I am doing the best with what I have.”


It’s 2022 at the time of this writing, but by the time you read it, it will be 2024. I had to write a ton of content ahead of time to stay consistent despite what’s happening. 🔥🙌
