I Take Up Space.


My sister didn't get a B until her college years. My first B, however, was in the unknown territory that was the fifth grade. No matter how much I tried to hold out, that reading class just had it in for me. I was devastated, to say the least. 

Looking back I can pinpoint that as the first time I've truly compared myself to someone else.

The question is: WHY? 

I often wonder how much time out of our lives we spend comparing ourselves to other people, believing we're not good enough on our own. We take up too much space. We're too loud. Too quiet. Too everything. For reasons I can't quite comprehend, we never seem to be happy with ourselves. Maybe that's why I find myself still wishing I was more extroverted, (i'm way cooler online, believe me) more creative.... whatever whatever.

BUT. 

I take up space. I take up space. And that's okay. Spending so much time comparing yourself to someone else leaves little room for living your life, & that is not okay. You are allowed to take up space.

xo,
