Nothing is more damaging to the sense of self than comparing yourself to others, as the days pass you will catch yourself frequently falling into the ever-alluring yet emotionally-dangerous trap of comparing yourself to every single move other people make, their lives, success, wealth …
Today I am sharing 5 reasons why you should stop comparing yourself to others and start working on improving your self to be the person you deserve to be, because No one in the entire world can do a better job of being you than you.
1. Comparing yourself to others distracts you from your own goals: If you spend your whole life stalking people and comparing your life to theirs, you will miss the opportunity to be someone and inspire an entire generation of your accomplishments and success, Focus on what you can produce out of your self, I am sure everyone has a special something to give.
2. You can’t change who you are: There are some things that you can change…you can change your clothes, you can change your hair, but you can’t change who you really are, deep down inside. Just because another person is an outgoing extrovert, that doesn’t mean that you can be the same and nor do you need to be.
3. Jealousy is not a nice feeling: When we talk about making comparison with other people, what we are really talking about is nothing more than jealousy, and that is not a nice feeling to have. Getting works up, because someone has something that you don’t, will eat you up inside and it’s not a particularly attractive trait to have either.
4. People just aren’t all the same: Comparing people really is like comparing apples and oranges; they might be similar, but they are never the same. Everyone is made slightly different, they come from different backgrounds and they believe in different things, so it is impossible to say that one person is better than another.
5. While comparing yourself to others, you are wasting your own time: If you have got into the habit of constantly comparing yourself to others, then you are probably wasting a huge amount of time doing it. You could spend hours a day looking enviously at other people’s Facebook profiles, or you could be doing something amazing yourself. Remember too, that what you see on Facebook is not a true and complete picture of a person’s entire life.
