I think this goes along with how competitive I am but I struggle with comparing myself to others. Social media is awful for people like me as you look and think I’m not doing enough compared to so and so.
It doesn’t matter what other people are doing. All that matters is how myself and family are doing. But the comparison hurdle is one I have difficulty getting past.
With spring break this week or last for schools in this area, I’ve seen so many pics of families away on vacations. So what do I do, feel bad we aren’t traveling somewhere. Does it matter? Nope. Chris and I are both working, the boys have baseball games and I don’t feel the need to go anywhere. Day trips are so much easier and can be just as fun.
But do I feel bad yes. And don’t get me started on Disney. I hate lines so sorry kids Disney is not happening. I get Disney is amazing but I’d rather go anywhere else and not stand in lines for rides and characters and food and no. Plus there’s the cost. And I have five kids so no I’m good.
So maybe I’m not as fun or cool as other families but there’s lots of local fun things to do that are a lot easier to take my kids to and I’m good with that.
I need to stop comparing and realize I’m doing fine and so are my kids and that’s all that matters. It doesn’t matter what other families do. They are not my family so stop comparing and worrying about it.
But as a competitive person that comparing that goes on in my head is hard to shut off. Maybe one day I’ll stop. I got enough to worry about. And other families is not one of those many things I have to worry about!
