The Comparison Trap

Recently I went to a concert with my friends (Jonas Brothers for the win!) As the sun went down, the air grew crisp and the sky cleared — it was the PERFECT night for a concert.

But funny enough, I once *DREADED* getting older and the aging that inevitably comes with it (regardless of how strict my skincare routine may be.) And much like you, I used to believe the lie that very specific boxes needed to be checked by a certain age in order for me to *really* be happy.

But GIRL that’s what’s so funny about growing up…
