It is so easy to get caught up in the cut-throat kind of industry the online world is. The comparison game is strong with everyone showing just the best bits of themselves online. But it’s time to get honest. I’ve struggled with the comparing myself to others…
her posts are so much more informative
her photos are amazing
I wish I had as many subscribers as her
If only I could blog full time
However, thoughts like that don’t get you anywhere. I choose to find my worth in the fact the Jesus died for me to save me and in nothing else. When you know where you find your value, you worry less what people think. The false expectations of the world gradually fade in my mind and I can focus on doing what I love.
With encouragement from other online folk just like Marisa, I’ve been able to stay focused on building people up and not pulling them down.
Here are some ways I choose to support other people in the industry:
- Leave meaningful comments after actually reading the blog post or caption
- Give the occasional shout out on my Instagram using the hashtag #supportnotsabotage
- Celebrating others successes and not holding onto jealousy
- Every couple days I search one of my favourites on Instagram and spam their feed. This tends to work well since Instagram hardly ever shows me the posts from my favourite people I follow anyway 🙄.
Together we will make it.
Let’s not trample eachother to attempt to scramble to the top. I hear the top isn’t as great as you would think anyway.
Link one of your favourite blogs in the comments to show some support for them!
Don’t forget to also check out Marisa’s post and go leave her a lovely comment too!
