Stop Comparing Yourself To Others
“Comparison is the thief of joy.”
– Theodore Roosevelt
Let’s take a day to say, “I’m done with comparing myself to others.”
Comparing yourself to others is almost always a waste of time.
When you see someone else, you only get a glimpse of a small part of him or her.
Unless you know a person deeply, you are comparing yourself to their external self, their “best” face and mask – the part they actively show the world.
So most of the time, this looks “perfect” and it’s easy to forget that behind every person is at least one story of pain or struggle.
Behind that image, there is a real person that has doubts, makes mistakes and is perhaps unfulfilled and lost in certain ways.
In the end we are all very similar, so let go of the impulse to compare their situation to what you have.
Appreciate what you have achieved and allow what you admire in them to be your inspiration to move forward in the direction of what you desire.
Focus on the positive, be grateful for what you have, go for what you want and comparison will never rob you of joy again,
