the danger of comparison
To compare yourself with others is picking up a tool meant to measure success, completion, or method of one person to their goals, but instead and use it against yourself and measure yourself against them. The practice of comparing yourself to others will rob you of contentment, joy and make everyone else look better, their lives more successful and their goal grander.
Stay away from the need to compare. We find ourselves comparing the small and the big things, our cooking to someone else, our weight, our children's success or failures.
This act of comparison happens so quickly and naturally that it catches us off guard. It seems innocent at first, and if it is just a matter of noticing and celebrating someone's success or ability, it remains harmless.
When that comparison lingers and begins to stir up questions, "why am I not where I should be," "that should be me," the act of comparison is taking a slow turn into becoming resentment, discontent, and if it continues it can become jealous and unproductive thinking. You can find yourself being stuck looking at someone else and not valuing themselves.
Protect your joy, value your success by stopping the practice of comparing. Be proud of who you are, and what you have accomplished.
