Blog Challenge. Day Four.: Breakin' them habits.

#4. What is one habit you wish you didn't have.

Gee. Where to begin? ;)

I miraculously stopped biting my nails this year...so I can't say that.

I think the number one habit I wish I didn't have is comparing myself to other people.

I do that regularly....very. regularly.

Something is wrong with me because they got asked to do something and I didn't.
She must hate me because she gives everyone else more attention.
I must not have as many friends as she does because she's prettier than I am.
He would never like me because he dated "her" and I'm nothing like her.
God, it would be better for you to use _____ because they're better at that than me.
I'm messing up somewhere because that person seems so much closer to the Lord than I feel.

stupid. insecure. useless comparing.

It's more than a habit. It's a crippling sin.

And I'm ready to be done with it.

Is it just me? Or are you maybe struggling with this too?
How do you stop yourself from comparing?

Amen sister.
I have been through the same cycle.
Always comparing and not feeling adequate.
Praying for you sister, break the cycle.
Love you and hope I see you before you move to CS.
