Thought for Day 22 of 2015:  Don’t compare yourself to others


 

One of the most destructive things you can do is to compare your life and yourself to other people and their lives. You compare jobs, homes, money, cars, popularity, relationships and so on. Doing so only brings down your self-esteem and creates a lot of negative feelings.

What you see isn’t necessarily reality. We see is what we want to see. We don’t see people’s hardships or struggles so we have no clue what we are comparing ourselves to.

In 2015, rather than comparing, focus on the positive things in yourself and appreciate the gifts you have to offer. Be okay with yourself and don’t rank yourself against others and create differences in your mind. You are okay just the way you are so stop comparing yourself to anyone else.
