Fighting the Comparison Game as a Creative
The other day John and I were on a date and I was telling him about one of my photography friends and how she has been killing it lately. Of course I was proud of her, but deep down inside of me, I envied her. I know I preach about celebrating others and hyping people up And trust me, I’m all about it.
But sometimes I struggle with it. Sometimes I get caught up being selfish and wanting what other people have & will get really down on myself. Being the gracious and sweet man that my husband is, he reminded me of my identity.
My identity isn’t found in how successful my photography business is, how much money I make, how many shoots I book, how many friends I have, or anything else that’s temporary of this world.
You fill in the blanks for whatever you might be chasing after. Our worth is far greater than a paycheck, stable job or dream job, relationship status, etc. Instead, it’s found in Jesus and He tells us that we’re enough.
So maybe you’re struggling with the comparison game and have been feeling a little (or a lot) down.
It’s time to say peace out to those negative thoughts and start speaking truth over yourself. Wherever you’re at, I hope you know Jesus is celebrating YOU, just as you are.
