I know it can be hard to find contentment sometimes. I struggle with contentment a lot.
One of the biggest reasons that discontentment happens is, COMPARISON.
Yup. I said it. Comparison.
There is so much comparison that is always going on in our world. One of the biggest reasons people compare themselves so much is social media.
You see someone else and their life looks perfect on there. But in reality, it’s really not. Nobody is perfect.
It’s ok to look at someone’s pictures and think they’re pretty, but you should not look at those pictures and then start comparing yourself to them. It’s very unhealthy to do that. It can hurt you so much to do it.
Sure, I do it every once in a while, but I always start praying or ask a friend to pray for me. Or I get off of social media for a couple days.
Social media can be SO fun, but other times it can be damaging to someone who really struggles with insecurities isn’t being careful.
When we feel discontented, just go to God. People, go to God with everything. He’s there for you NO. MATTER. WHAT.
He loves us so much and wants us to come and talk to him. He loves to help us work through our problems.
We need to be thankful for what we have. I know sometimes I’m not and when I realize it, I usually will get mad at myself. But all I need to do is repent and ask forgiveness.
If we look around at what we have, we will realize that we are so blessed. We are blessed to even be able to wake up in the morning and breathe. So why do we always want more?
Because the world tells us we need more. We see other people doing so much more than us and we become discontent.
I did a Bible plan in the summer and it really helped me with my comparison struggles. I still struggle with it a little bit but this definitely helped.
If you ever struggle with comparison, please read this and pray. God can help you through the struggle.
