For International Women’s Day (and every day), let’s stop comparing ourselves to each other. Instead, let’s celebrate the beauty and uniqueness we all possess.

Comparison

She’s confident, secure,
Conquering the world one day at a time,
Why can’t I be more like her?
I’m always trying, yet never measuring up,
My efforts in vain, my challenges overwhelming,
Doing it all, yet mastering nothing, lacking, not enough;
Always less than;
Why can’t I be more like her?
If only I knew her thoughts echoed my own,
If only I understood that comparison is universal,
And it kills the best in all of us.
