Every night, after Jeffy and I have watched our tv show(s), I am wide awake. I need more time to calm myself down to get ready for sleepy time. I check email, facebook, my tiny tower peeps, pinterest…and eventually I check out youtube. Not sure why, as that sometimes keeps me awake even longer. Although I have been getting to bed earlier since Ray William Johnson has not been on this month.. 😉 Anyway, a while back, I happened across a channel by Jenna Marbles. So so funny. She swears…a lot…and those that know me probably wonder why I watch her. She has a lot of silly videos, but every now and again she has one that just makes sense. Like this one. (beware of language)
It is SO true! I see it all the time! Girls compare themselves way too much. Everything is a competition. I want to be skinnier than her, I want my kids to be better than hers, I want my life to be better than hers…oh goodness, it goes on and on! I realized years ago that comparing/competing against other girls is just plain stupid. I am so thankful that I am married to a man that appreciates me for who I am. I don’t think he would have it any other way! He likes that I am not like other girls. Sometimes I give him the o_O look about that, but he is telling the truth! I am me! I enjoy that I am me. I love that there is nobody else LIKE me. Too many girls never realize their full potential in themselves and go their whole lives comparing themselves to others. Ack. I wouldn’t want that at all!
I think that what JennaMarbles said is right on. If we could all just stop…we could all be friends. Try it!! 😉
