We all do it or have done it at some point in our lives: We compare ourselves to others and gauge where we are based on what we observe them to be doing.
If this was simply an observation, that would be one thing. But in comparing ourselves to others, we often end up judging ourselves. There’s no one worse to judge!
Oh man, watch out, I’ve got some breaking news for you all: No one is perfect! Not me, not you, not your arch nemesis from middle school whose Facebook you can’t seem to pry your eyes off of. And that’s okay. In fact, it’s cool. It’s cool because, to be frank, it has to be. If you don’t learn to be content with your imperfections, you will drive yourself insane. When you focus on your imperfections, that is all you see. Next time you find yourself picking your “imperfections” apart, look at the whole picture. The less time you spend zeroing in on your one tiny “imperfection”, the less time it’s there. That’s real talk. The only reason you can always see it, is because you’re always looking for it.
This is something I've learned the hard way! We are all find fault with in ourselves our imperfection. God has formed us all in his hands and created us for a purpose.
