Comparing ourselves to others is a natural response and we do it automatically. Comparing ourselves with others is unfair because we are comparing our worst parts with what you think are their best parts.
When you look at other people you don’t always see the whole picture. Don’t be fooled by their appearance or social media updates. We easily forget that we really don’t always know what others are going through.
Most people have had their share of messes, mistakes and shame and all of these things have been a catalyst to becoming a wiser and better you. When you are in the depths of comparison, ask yourself what am I actually feeling?
Is comparison masking as jealousy or feelings of inadequacy?
Comparing yourself only serves a purpose when it inspires you to be something more. Be proud of yourself and how far you’ve come.
Comparison is the death of joy.
― Mark Twain
