I constantly compare myself with others to measure up my worth. I&#39;m really trying to work on it, but I definitely notice it creeping back in once in a while. I think in some regards, blogging has helped me (dressing my body better, meeting other people) but in other ways, I still struggle (particularly with comparing my body/clothes/budget/personality/beauty to other bloggers). Your tips are perfect, and like I said, exactly what I needed to hear today. I have a small handful of favorite bloggers who can always cheer me up, make me think, and encourage me to better myself. YOU are at the top of my list. Thank you for always inspiring me!<br /><br /><br />theoriginalbrynn.blogspot.comBrynnhttp://theoriginalbrynn.blogspot.com/noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5346186774251836452.post-3954534235276767662013-04-27T23:40:02.958-05:002013-04-27T23:40:02.958-05:00Oh hon, I feel ya on the acne!

I have cried and prayed and begged and pleaded and smeared all kinds of weird stuff on my face (some of which gave me horrible allergic reactions!) all in the name of wishing I had perfect skin. Well, after this long, I&#39;m finally reaching a point where I&#39;m not letting the acne define me any more. It&#39;s just there. It&#39;s not who I am. Do I like it? Nope, not one bit. But I&#39;m less self-conscious of it nowadays. <br /><br /><br />I love what you said about taking compliments. It can be too easy to put ourselves down and we just need to knock it off! We are beautiful!<br /><br /><br />And YOU are beautiful. Your confidence in yourself and your courage to share your story is inspiring and I really enjoy reading your blog. :-)Melissanoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5346186774251836452.post-9244783027567405782013-04-27T20:41:35.217-05:002013-04-27T20:41:35.217-05:00Amen sister!

You are right and searching for clothes- I will sometimes spend hours online looking for clothes. Have you heard of Gwynnie Bee?

What a gem. Lover your pic (little black dress with turquoise accessories) and that led me to check out your blog. I have been struggling with weight all my life. Now that I am in an executive position, finding nice, well made clothes that are not matronly and not outrageously overprice has been....exhausting. <br /><br />That said, your post on confidence is spot on. And learning how to take a compliment....wow.
