I just got my daily horoscope in the mail, and this is what it says:

Value Without Comparison
Gemini Daily Horoscope
If you insist upon comparing yourself to others today, you may find your healthy self-esteem is quickly transformed into a demoralizing sense of inadequacy. A simple desire to discover how your lifestyle, achievements, possessions, and attitudes measure up to those of your family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors can turn into competitiveness if you feel that others’ blessings overshadow your own. Consider, however, that you can see only the surface level of the lives of the individuals around you. Looking at your life from an outsider’s perspective can help you understand the scope of the blessings the universe has bestowed upon you. Your self-esteem will flourish and grow today as you explore the joys inherent in your own experience and learn to appreciate the beauty of the life you have created.

One of the simplest ways to bolster your self-worth is to stop comparing yourself to others. Each time we look with envy upon what the individuals around us possess and each time we covet the lifestyle others in our community have achieved, we devalue our own lives. Your value as an individual is not a product of what you do, what you own, or what you have achieved. Once you are able to perceive this individual value without endeavoring to discover how it measures up, you’ll begin to understand the infinite love and perfection that resides in your heart and soul. You’ll seek to expand upon your uniqueness rather than conform to worldly standards. When you shun comparisons today, you’ll find that you are more fulfilled by your life than ever before.

I thought that was interesting. I've been comparing myself to others way too much lately. I am supposed to be working on loving myself. I am trying. I am not putting junk into my mouth. I am MAKING time to exercise each day. I am evaluating my friendships and letting go of the people who are holding me back. I need to just be my own best cheerleader, and the best way to do that is to stop giving a fuck about all the other cheerleaders on the team.

Everyone who went to high school knows that they're bitches who don't give two shits about us anyhow.

It sounds like we are both in the same place. Good luck, I know I need it.
