Feeling Inadequate

We have all at one time or another felt inadequate or not good enough. Felt extremely bad about ourselves and judged ourselves too harshly. I am definetly guilty of this. I constantly compare myself to others. And feel like I’m not doing a good enough job or not working hard enough for my goals. Or even at times get envious of others because it seems I am working much harder than others, and they still succeed better than me. This is not okay!๐Ÿ™…

First of all we shouldn’t compare ourselves to others. We need to be grateful for what we do have, instead of what we don’t. Whether that be physically or emotionally. There is nothing wrong with setting goals for ourselves or wanting to better ourselves in a certain way. None of us are perfect! Not even those that seem to be perfect. We all have flaws and imperfections. But, getting mad or envious of others just makes you feel worse.

Just today, I got a new swimsuit and immediately I started criticizing how I looked. Instead, of being happy that I had to buy a new swimsuit because last years was too big. I was critical of how I looked in my new one! Ridiculous! I accomplished so much health and fitness wise in the past two years. And yet I still wasn’t happy!

I had to take a step back and compose myself. I now realize I WAS being silly. I worked very hard to get to this point and had to remind myself I am more than this body. I’m a mother, a wife, a sister, a daughter. I’m healthy and physically fit. I needed to be grateful for what I do have. Life is more than just looking perfect in a swimsuit.

So just an encouragement to anyone out there feeling inadequate. Think of what you do have. Think about how hard you are working to achieve your goals. There is always something to be grateful for.
