Just because she’s lifting heavier weights doesn’t mean you’re weak
So what if she has had success in your field, it doesn’t mean you won’t or can’t
When your ex falls in love with her, it doesn’t mean you are unlovable
Her wearing a certain size dress, doesn’t mean your size is wrong
When you notice the way she commands the room, it doesn’t mean you didn’t or can’t too
As you think “she looks very put together” it doesn’t mean you don’t anymore
Her body being printed on magazines doesn’t mean you’re body isn’t worthy
Comparison is a tricky game that nobody wins
If we believe that we all can do and be our best selves without taking that away from others than we can also choose to believe that when someone is their best self, it doesn’t mean we can’t be
Imposter syndrome tells you you can’t own your power because then everyone could say you’re a fraud
But the truth underlying this is that YOU HAVE POWER
And the catch is whether or not you choose to OWN it
Usually what differs between those who do and those who don’t is the ability to separate ones own life experiences & success from that which is perceived, promoted, expected by, or rewarded through others
And the ones who truly rise up, do it together; with love, support, space, & belief that there really is room for all of us
So, What are you holding yourself back from?
Where are you playing small?
When are you going to step up & into your power?
BUILD MORE THAN JUST A BODY
