stop-comparing-yourself-to-others

anonymous asked:

Do you think depression makes me weak? Like everbody else can handle the world we live in but i can't does that make me weak? Why can't i just live like a normal person and do normal daily tasks like others. Someone made a comment about this and it really stuck with me. Like if other people can deal with it why can't i. It's just such a scary place and i don't want to be here. This probably sounds so weird sorry

Depression is just a bunch of intensive emotions and thoughts. There’s no such thing as a normal life. Everybody goes through tough shit. Example: celebrities have so much money and could do anything they want and yet there’s always a storyline about some horrible shit happening to them yet we label them as people who have it so easy. God has plans for you. Your plans aren’t gonna be the same as somebody else’s so stop comparing yourself to others. People think cause I have such a big follower base that I was the “pretty popular girl” in high school when in reality I barely attended school, I’d take my work home and teach myself and graduated with decent/average grades. You’ll be fine. You’re just thinking too much about shit that won’t even be on your mind next year February.

1. stop comparing yourself to other people. embrace your differences. remember what you have to offer the world. make lists of your good traits. forget what other people can do better and remember what you do good.


2. tell your friends you love and appreciate them more. thank them for listening. thank them for being them. forgive them faster and stop letting petty things get in between your friendships.

3. stop going back to the ex who screwed you over. be friends if you want, but remember they don’t even deserve your friendship. remember you cannot be fixed by the one who broke you.

4. let go of the people who are bringing you down. if a relationship brings you more pain than joy, it’s a toxic relationship. stop putting effort into people who refuse to meet you half way.

5. compliment yourself at least one time every day. try to compliment others every day as well.

6. get serious about your health. eat wheat bread and less sugar. exercise, even if it’s just walking. don’t do this for a flat stomach; do it because it’s good for your health.

7. take care of your mental health. surround yourself with people who make the negative thoughts in your head shut off. ask for help. see a therapist if you need one. take your pills as prescribed.

8. stop letting little things bother you. ask yourself if you’re really going to care about it in five years, and if the answer is no, let go of it. stop wasting time feeling sorry for yourself. sometimes you can’t help but to get upset over things, but when you do, do everything in your power to try to cheer yourself up.

9. use the internet less. read more books. spend more time with your family. spend more time being present and looking people in the eye. look up and appreciate the beauty around you.

10. drink less alcohol. do things with people that doesn’t involve drinking. discover how to have fun sober.

11. start the career you actually want. switch majors, even if you will end up spending more time in school. go back to college if you’re not in it and you want a profession you have to go to college for. i know it’s expensive but the rest of your life is worth it.

12. stop watching life pass you by. learn to say yes and learn to say no. learn to make decisions for yourself. learn to say “i am unhappy where i am so i am changing it.” make the first move. take charge of your life.

13. save more money for things you really want, whether it be a vacation or a new pair of shoes. stop blowing money on things you don’t need. pay your bills on time and avoid the late fees.

14. appreciate the good things in your life. eliminate negative self talk (or at least try to). think about three good things in your life every morning before you get out of bed. stop dwelling on the bad.

15. give your all in everything you do. don’t settle for mediocrity. work every day to be a better person than you were the day before.

Representation in yoi episode 7!!!

oh boi here we go…

Firstly, they showed yuri’s anxiety disorder in such a realistic and relatable way.
Everyone who has anxiety has experienced a situation like that before, where you’re in public and can’t stop comparing yourself to others competing or around you. And Victor knew. Victor knew and took him where no one was around to calm him.

It showed Victor making a mistake like an actual realationship. It showed him trying to understand what to do but not being sure because he doesn’t understand exactly how to comfort someone. It showed him being so human.

It showed crying not as a form of weakness but as a way to express himself. It shows it as something everyone does and how relieved it can make you feel. Most importantly, he admitted his feelings and that was okay.

And finally…

THE KISS. THE. FUCKING. KISS.
THIS IS NOW A CANON QUEER REALATIONSHIP IN A NON YAOI ANIME.
It’s ground breaking. Victor didn’t kiss him to calm him he kissed him out of love and trust. And everyone was okay with it, -except for yurio but he’s just a lil bitter smol- . It was perfectly timed and placed and just. wow.

Yuri on Ice has made history for the LGBT community aswell as giving us a healthy relationship and mental illness in a real way.

You could say it was,

Born to make history.

Dignity
/ˈdignitē/ noun

1. The moment you realize that the person you cared for has nothing intellectually or spiritually to offer you, but a headache.

2. The moment you realize God had greater plans for you that don’t involve crying at night or sad Pinterest quotes.

3. The moment you stop comparing yourself to others because it undermines your worth, education and your parent’s wisdom.

4. The moment you live your dreams, not because of what it will prove or get you, but because that is all you want to do. People’s opinions don’t matter.

5. The moment you realize that no one is your enemy, except yourself.

6. The moment you realize that you can have everything you want in life. However, it takes timing, the right heart, the right actions, the right passion and a willingness to risk it all. If it is not yours, it is because you really didn’t want it, need it or God prevented it.

7. The moment you realize the ghost of your ancestors stood between you and the person you loved. They really don’t want you mucking up the family line with someone that acts anything less than honorable.

8. The moment you realize that happiness was never about getting a person. They are only a helpmate towards achieving your life mission.

9. The moment you believe that love is not about losing or winning. It is just a few moments in time, followed by an eternity of situations to grow from.

10. The moment you realize that you were always the right person. Only ignorant people walk away from greatness.

Stop comparing yourself to the other people. The only man you should compare yourself with is your past self. Be a better you everyday. Your competitor is yourself.

Galatians 6:4 “Let everyone be sure that he is doing his very best, for then he will have the personal satisfaction of work well done, and won’t need to compare himself with someone else.”
You are unique! And God is shaping you for a purpose like no one else’s. His plans for your life is unique. No one else can do what you can do. Therefore, you need to stop comparing yourself with others and do your very best at what God has called you to do. You may feel worthless by the way others treat you. But God is saying to you, “You are precious in my eyes, and I love you” (Isaiah 43:4) The Lord will fulfill His purpose for you!“ (Psalm 138:8)

On this day, God wants you to know that you need to stop comparing yourself to other people. Some people are great singers, some are really smart and others are great athletes. But none of them are, or ever could be you. You are one of a kind. So stop comparing yourself to other people. You can’t be them any more than they can be you.
