Sherry, here, with an excerpt from my girl’s book, The Christian Girl’s Guide to Style:
Q: I have the jealousy bug. Some of my friends have the cutest things—like earrings, hair accessories, hoodies, and jeans. Why do I always compare myself with others?
A: When we compare ourselves with others, it really means that we’re not confident in our unique style. We want what others have because we think they have it all together.
Chances are, your friends want something someone else has too. The Bible talks about being content with what God has given us (check out Hebrews 13:5).
Contentment is hard to grasp, even as an adult—ask your mom or dad. But when we ask God to help us, He can give us the confidence we need to be ourselves and be happy with what we have.
