Keeping Up with the Joneses

While it’s normal to desire something better, nicer or more exciting, don’t let your desire for what someone else has, cause you to become discontented with what you already possess. Trying to keep up with the Joneses is a never ending chase. 

When we are not secure with who we are and what we have, we psyche ourselves into believing that acquiring certain material goods will bring us greater acceptance. In reality, we end up spending money we don’t necessarily have, to please people that really are not impressed.

Putting up a false facade based on what we think others want to see reveals the insecurities within us. It’s your perception of you that matters most. Trying to see yourself through the eyes of others is wasted energy. When you start to accept who you are, you’ll attract others that reinforce your empowering beliefs.
