“When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.” Lao Tzu
Just stop, don’t do it! The only person you should be comparing yourself with is YOU! Are you growing, learning, developing and getting better in your life? If yes then that is enough!
That person is prettier than me, skinnier, looks like they have more fun, more intelligent… whatever! Or if you are judging them and thinking you are better, both are equally bad. When you compare yourself to others you either feel superior or inferior neither one makes YOU happy or better in any capacity.
It is EASY in this digital world we live with Facebook, Instagram etc… to get caught up in other people’s lives (mistakenly thinking their live is so much better). People….or a least most people are posting the highlights of their lives, there is nothing wrong with that…just be aware of this. I don’t know about you but I love hearing about the good things that happen in people’s lives.
Next time you find yourself comparing yourself to anyone else just stop!
You are the person you have to live with and as long as you are doing your best that is all you can ask for=)
