She's so lucky, she has the perfect husband.
She's so lucky, she has a 2 carat diamond ring.
She's so lucky, she has a great body.
She's so lucky, she has the perfect house.
She's so lucky, she has the perfect kids.
Is there anything wrong with the above? Mostly not. I mean, wow, girl sounds like she has a great life. Lucky her!
Here's the problem ladies…the above statements are just that. Statements. She may have all of those things, but does she have love? Is she joyous and happy? Are the ring, the house and the perfect body just things or is this how she defines herself?
We live in a grass is always greener kind of world. It is so easy to look at our neighbors or our friends or watch tv and see all the THINGS that others have that we may not. It's easy to feel a little jealous. But soon, we find ourselves getting caught up in the trap to have the things our neighbors have or be like someone else. The truth is — while that grass may seem green — it needs to be mowed too. So while on the outside, it may look great — there is more to it than that.
Comparing yourself to others and wanting what others have will always leave you feeling empty. You can never be someone else. You have to strive for your own happiness. You might want to ask that girl that has everything and she may just tell you — she has nothing. You just see the outside and on the inside, she's empty.
So, the next time you feel like everyone else has everything and you feel inferior. Take a step back. Look around and really value what you do have. Your health, your friends, your family and all the other good things in your life. Sure, that 2 carat ring looks great. But when you realize that a diamond is just an overpriced allotrope of carbon that is not rare, but set by an artificial market to keep prices high — you will see that you want more than that in your life. You want something you can value in your heart. Then go watch this video — and be thankful for what you do have.
