As a still fairly new blogger it’s easy to get caught up in the success of another ore seasoned and super accomplished blogger for the reason being, BUT THEY HAVE SO MANY FRIENDS while I’m over here failing at life. I’ll be honest, I have those moments–in fact I still HAVE those moments. I’m sure we’ve all been at that low point. It’s happened to me at many times that I was literally considering the fact of why I was even doing this thing in the first place.
But then I figured something out….
Come hither, and I shall satisfy your curiosity.
Now, come closer.
Just a liiitttlltle bit more.
There! There we go.
The thing is, we’re all unique so how can you stand out in the crowd if you’re constantly trying to SOUND or BE like someone else?
BE THE AWESOME BLOGGER YOU ARE!
Being a new blogger to the blogging community, and even as a writer this is something I used to struggle with. But you want to know the one thing that helped me to get out of that and to kick that thought in the face? The fact that it’s been a year and I have more experience and have a lot of people have helped.
But I found that the more I stopped comparing myself to people, the more I stopped fretting and BEATING MYSELF UP when I didn’t get as many views as I would have liked one day, I found that once I stopped all of this, I felt better.
In short, I felt the PEACE, yo.
And that peace was so glorious I can’t even describe it. I can’t tell you how happier I am now that I’ve stopped comparing myself to others, the amount of followers and comments they have because what matters is this: (is found this quote and really related to it so I hope it relates to you guys as well)
“The biggest challenge in life is to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else.”
Stop comparing yourself to others and start comparing yourself to the you you were yesterday.
Did it hit you in the FEELS? If not…Pfft. KEIONDA DON’T CURR. (Nah, I really do)
While what I’m saying doesn’t take over night and then BOOM you’re this awesome, fearless homo sapien blogger that compares him/herself to NO OTHER. Yeah, probably not going to happen. As much practice as I’ve had and as many times that I’ve told myself not to do it, that doubt llama always comes back to me, all creepy-like, and whispers mean things in my ear making me be all negative Keionda once more.
‘Tis hard, this blogging life. ‘Tis very hard, yo.
But anywho, one thing that I would like for you guys to take away from this, it’s this:
Just stop comparing yourself, stop focusing on the accomplishments of others, JUST BE YOUR AWESOME CAKES SELF and you’ll turn out just fine!
Because in the end, why would you want to BE or ACT like anyone else?
How often do you compare yourself to others? How long has it been since you started blogging and do you compare your success to what you used to be? Or are you totally awesome so you don’t have to worry about that type of stuff. (If so, I’m totally jealous and you should TOTALLY devulge me all your wonderful secrets. *cue the manical laughter*
