Quite an unusual style post for me, but something I definitely want to address, and delve into further. Comparisons. 

Ever since I can remember, I've struggled with comparing myself to others, whether that be a girl I know, or a celebrity I don't know. It's something I consider to be the most distressing of any issues I've ever encountered/suffered with, and I'm yet to really conquer it. 

Since I still immensely struggle, I hardly think I'm in any position to offer life advice and be the light at the end of the tunnel, but as it's something I know all too well, I did want to share some tips I've found useful.


Yep. As hard as it may seem, removing people from your life who make you question your worth is incredibly beneficial. If you're finding yourself scrolling through feeds of people who don't make you feel so good. STOP. Think. Is what you're doing making you feel good? The answer is NO. Why would you subject yourself to the unnecessary pain? What initially held me back from removing the toxic people was wondering what they'd think. Fortunately, I don't care. Sometimes, you have to put yourself first. 


If step one wasn't doing anything for you, deleting social media is a daunting, but rewarding step. Obviously, I'm no advocate of not using social media, but I certainly have put myself through the steps. I've deleted Facebook, incredibly beneficial. I don't need to know so much about people I'm really not interested in. I used to have a Twitter account which I no longer use. Anyone pre-2013 can stay there. (I do have a new Twitter which I use solely to keep up with the blogging world.. and to moan.. and to post pictures of my dog). 
Anyway, rip the band aid off! (Thanks Pheobe). Even if it's just for a day, a week, a month. Do it. You'll notice how much happier you are.


Something I've found useful along the way, is quotes. Sometimes they really put your mind and issues into perspective. Even if it's just for a few seconds, I find it really opens my mind.
I'll leave a few of my favourites below.

I hope this is useful, and that you enjoy this type of post! I hope to do more like this in the future, and frequently. Please let me know in the comments if you have any tips/advice for me!post signature

  1. I too find it hard to stay positive, but, what I've found that extremely helps is eating healthy, exercising, eating less sugary foods and drinks and planning things to look forward to helps you to think and feel better in yourself. Also to prevent becoming to stressed, keep a diary/planner with you to track what you need to do each day and plan what activities, blog posts/events you have coming up and to get into a routine that suits you. Hope this helps! :) ♡
