The Time Comparison Almost Destroyed My Life — 8 Comments

  1. As someone who has been down the road that led to a dark pit of depression, I honestly know your beautiful, sharing heart gives such encouragement! Thank you. Love-n-Hugs-n-Prayers as we point others to Him, sweet friend. He was (and is!) the light in our darkness.

  2. Hi Barbie, I left a comment at Laura’s but it did not take for some reason-I applaud your beautiful courage for sharing from your heart. Thank you and I am so grateful that you trusted God to help you share those words- how they bless!
    Your honesty and sharing create breathing space in my faith! 😉

  3. Barbie, I would have left a comment over at Laura’s site but my comments with Google commenting system always disappear into never never internet land. So I’m leaving my comment here instead.

    Your story captivated me. Do you have any idea how much I can relate with you? My comparison problem is not in my marriage, but it is in my own self-worth. I constantly compare myself to other women and their lives. She has a degree. I don’t. She’s smarter than me. She’s so beautiful. She has a better body. She’s more gifted. She’s stronger in her faith. She’s a better mother. She’s a better writer. …and on and on and on it goes. I constantly struggle with feeling unaccepted by the world around me. And truth be told, even though I have an AMAZING husband, I have had comparison thoughts of ‘why can’t he be more outdoorsy like her husband?’ or ‘why can’t he take his health more seriously like so and so?’

    Anyway, I’m rambling. But I just wanted you to know I think you are an incredible woman, friend, writer, and artist. You are such a light for the Lord. Don’t ever change. You are beautiful. Inside and out. <3

  4. Dear Barbie
    I don’t seem to find the rest of your post at Laura’s. I am always excited to see how you draw much closer to Jesus each and every day that passes.
