Do you ever have those moments when you’re looking through social media and you start comparing yourself to others? I’m not gonna lie – I have definitely had those moments. But we’re human! Sometimes we can’t help it. It can be so easy to scroll through social media and put yourself down by thinking you’re not good enough. Well, WE ARE GOOD ENOUGH. We aren’t perfect, but everyone has some pretty awesome qualities. We all have a purpose and something unique to offer! That’s why it’s important to always try to have a positive perspective about social media. Even though there can be downsides, social media is a really great space. Creating a mindset of collaboration over competition on social media is a great step forward on overcoming comparison.
When I first started blogging, I used to always play the comparison game. I would have thoughts like “Why does she get a lot of likes and I don’t?” or “Those photos are way better than mine.” It sucks having those negative feelings, but when I started to find a community and focus on my own mission and journey, that’s when everything changed. Community is everything on social media. It’s an awesome feeling when you find people who have the same interests and goals as you. Everyone is in a different place along their journey and rather than comparing yourself to them, we should focus on uplifting and helping others. I love that I have found a community of bloggers who help inspire and support me. Not to sound cheesy, but we are all in this together in this blogging world!
This is why I’m a supporter of Toms. I love that their brand is all about community, equality, and helping others. They are definitely a brand that I can stand behind. Did you know that Toms have so many different styles aside from their classic shoe that we all know and love?. I am obsessed with their new spring collection. They have the cutest sandals, heels, and wedges. I am wearing their coral pink suede tropez wedges. They fit true to size and are super comfortable. They also come in two other colors: black and honey. And they are under $100! These can be styled with so many different outfits. I will definitely be wearing these all the time throughout the spring and summer. And! Great news! You can get 15% off your order by using the code “everythingdee15” 🙂 You should definitely check them out! I linked all my favorites below.
