Being 13 I worry sometimes about looks, and height and weight, and stuff. My Dr says I am normal but do compare yourself to other people your age that may have more muscles or look stronger?

I think it is totally natural for us to compare our looks, and bodies to other people during puberty.

The thing to remember Colton, is that each of us develop at a different rate, some based on heredity, diet, and exercise.

As long as the Dr says you are healthy, do not worry about how you look compared to other people. You are still growing, let nature takes its course.

Not just at a younger age in our life, but I think all through high school we constantly compare ourselves to our peers.

Everyone seems to be in competition, to be the fastest, to be the strongest , to be the most popular. But individuals are unique, you be the best you can be, and if you have high self esteem, accept who you are, change the things you want to change, but do it for you, not because of someone else.

I am, and have always been quite happy with my looks, and body. I know there are others that are built better, but a lot are built worse, so I take what God gave me and I work with it.

Thanks everyone for your answers. I guess I am not the only one that goes through this then. It really helps though when I hear from other people though about what they think.

Not particularly, I accept who I am, as far as my personality, and my looks.

Guess my self esteem is pretty high, and comparing yourself to others sometimes will make you feel inferior, we all are different and I like not looking like, or acting identical to other people.

Sometimes I do, until I stop and think how really stupid it is, it does not matter what brand shirts or jeans you wear, or your looks really, I think what attracts people is what is inside of you and how you project yourself to other people.

The only time I really compare myself to other people is when I play soccer. Am I being a team player and putting forth my best or am I slacking, and how do I compare to my ability versus other people on my team.

Both physically and mentally I am my own unique individual, I know who I want to be and I strive to be that person, so no, I do not compare myself to other people.

I try not to, but sometimes I cannot help it if I am playing sports because I am pretty competitive.

Not really, I am who I am, and I accept both my strengths and weaknesses.

I never compare myself to other people, I am unique, and why try and be like others, when you enjoy being yourself. Sure there are people that live in a nicer house than I live in, or walk around with an expensive phone or name brand clothing, but I wonder "are they really happy, is this what they want, or are they trying to show off?".

Yes, for the last 4 years I have, but yesterday it ended. I am happy with myself, I am worth it to be unique,
and to be who I am.
