“Confidence isn’t thinking you’re better than anyone else, it’s realizing that you have no reason to compare yourself to anyone else.” ~Maryam Hasnaa⠀
Focusing on being the best me I can be always does more for my self-confidence than comparing myself to others.

The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.” ~Steve Furtick
Comparing ourselves to others always leads to a false comparison because we see all of our internal struggles and behind-the-scene disasters while only seeing the polished facades of others. If you must compare, a better bet is comparing who you are now to who you once were to monitor your own growth. That will build your confidence and focus your attention on a more accurate measure!
