Bre Kennedy Sings Us A Reminder Of What's Important To Remember; No One Compares To Each Other

Updated: Apr 9


I think it's safe to say we have a love/hate relationship with social media. We love it, we hate it and we love hating it. Why? Because we're human and it's a people driven platform where lives and lifestyles are on steroids in our face and yet we can't look away. The fight with ourselves to post our 'best selves' but also be 'authentic'. The fight for attention but the right attention from the right people for the right reasons. The fight to not compare ourselves but be cheerleaders for friends and strangers alike. There are many other fights we have but I think it's fair to say it's a challenge to navigate the space much less life in general without comparing ourselves.


"...This is one of my favorites on "Note To Self" because I needed it as a reminder to myself to not compare my life to everyone else's that they post online..." - Bre Kennedy

So what is the solution? How can we be on a platform where we are sharing our lives with friends, family and strangers and not feel the need to pump ourselves up or feel like we're not enough? I think as much as we all 'know' that comparison of ourselves doesn't work and doesn't make us feel good, we don't always remember that in our day to day lives. We are unique beings. There is no one else on the planet of 7 billion that is you. There are many like you, but yes you are the only one that is you. So factually speaking it is impossible to compare you with anyone else. You have a special calling and journey that only you can discover.


So take this beautiful and gentle reminder from our friend Bre Kennedy, listen until you remember it in your heart; we weren't born to fit in but rather to stand out. There is no comparison.


LYRICS - NOTHING COMPARES

Nothing compares to the feeling Of thinking in circles alone in my bed That's when I really start spinning Out of the atmosphere, all in my head I check the phone, see the dopamine hits so I'm Not alone, I just need a quick fix, now I'm Caught between where I am and she is She's a star in making, here I am waiting


Oh, here I go again (Oh, here I go) Making comparisons Drawing myself against everyone else (Mmm) Burning my hours on Digital flowers on Something that's not even there So nothing compares

Ooh-oh-oh-oh Ooh-oh-oh-oh


When did l make up the system? Measuring everything in a glass box Where did I buy the opinion? That if someone's worth something, it means I am not


Oh, here I go again [Oh, here I go Making comparisons Drawing myself against everyone else (Mmm) Burning these hours on Digital flowers on Something that's not even there So nothing compares

Ooh-oh-oh-oh Ooh-oh-oh-oh Ooh-oh-oh-oh Ooh, ooh


Jealous of silhouettes Filtered and edited Things that are thinner than air (Mmm)


Oh, here I go again (Oh, here I go) Making comparisons Drawing myself against everyone else (Mmm) Burning my hours on Digital flowers on Something that's not even there So nothing compares

Ooh-oh-oh-oh Ooh-oh-oh-oh Ooh-oh-oh-oh Ooh, ooh, ooh
