Guest Post by Sue C. Smith: 6 Ways to Avoid Comparing Yourself to Others (Vita. Consilio. 05.28.17)

We are wired to compare. We compare every day. Will this pair of shoes match my outfit today or go with my outfit tomorrow? Which is the better phone? Will I get to work faster if I take the car or the train? Which restaurant offers the best tasting steak? All these questions involve comparison. Read more…

SORRY, WE CAN’T LIVE EACH OTHER’S DREAM (Live. Pray. Hustle. 05/07/17)

SORRY, WE CAN’T LIVE EACH OTHER’S DREAM (Live. Pray. Hustle. 05/07/17)

There is always going to be someone who you think is living the life you want. They may seem to have it all together, have something more than you do, or have something better than you. But the real truth is, no one else is living your dream. Not because they don’t want to, but because they can’t. Every single person must live their own life and fulfill their own dreams. It is not possible to live the life of another person or fulfill someone else’s dreams because you are too different and too unique for that to happen.

People Are Who They Are and They Don’t Fit Into Perfect Little Boxes (People. Matter. 03.31.17)

There are two things that are especially true when it comes to people. First, every person is different in a thousand ways. Second, no one is perfect nor can they be if they tried.

Our differences and our imperfections are what make us who we are. You wouldn’t be you without these components and I wouldn’t be me. Too often, however, we forget in the overall discourse of life that we are as separate as our fingers are from our toes. We try to make everyone fit into a perfect little box, just the way we want them to be. Or we judge others because they don’t live up to our ideal expectations. Read more…

Guest Post by Megha Shah: How Criticizing Others Affects Their Self-Esteem (People. Matter. 02.14.17)

Even God doesn’t judge a man until his last moments — then who are we to judge others?

More often than not, we take it for granted that people will behave and talk like we want them to. It is human nature to expect a certain kind of response from any person. Failing to get such a response, we tend to, very conveniently, tell them hurtful things — things that when told to us would result in anger and rage.  Read more…

FAITH (Live. Pray. Hustle. 01/31/17)

FAITH (Live. Pray. Hustle. 01/31/17)
(Right-click to download)

We say that we have faith and that is good. But talking about faith and living faith are two different things. If we really had faith, we would not judge, criticize, or discriminate. We wouldn’t disregard people because they don’t look like us, think like us, or act like us. We would hear. We would lean in. We would understand. We would see others as we should see ourselves. That is part of what it means to have faith.

LIVE. PRAY. HUSTLE.

When We Don’t Understand, We Judge (People. Matter. 01.27.17)

We’re all guilty of passing judgment on someone else at one point or another. There are many reasons we judge people. Some of us judge because we don’t like other people. Some of us judge because we’re insecure or feel inadequate. Others of us judge because we are conscious of our differences or perceived differences. Others of us judge because we are envious and try to find something wrong with the other person. We use judging as a way to be in control, to feel like we’re superior, and to defend ourselves.
