We draw comparisons, but perhaps we shouldn’t, because drawing comparisons can lead to discouragement, doubt and fear. Comparisons may also limit our own ambitions if we choose to ride with them for long enough.
The truth is no one is better than you, because you’re walking your own path so there is no need for comparisons. When we continue to compare and draw comparisons with others, we’re giving ourselves numerous reasons to fail and were underselling ourselves. When we unconsciously continue to draw comparisons, we will also add struggle into the equation.
We draw comparisons because we’re struggling with insecurities. We hide behind a facade wishing our lives were different, living another person’s life instead of making the best of what we have. We spend too much time listening to others, instead of listening to ourselves.
We need to ignore the distractions and listen to our inner voice. Our inner voice is the voice of reason, the voice that will help us initiate the way we choose to live and move forward.
We mustn’t let our insecurities and negativity stop us from being the best we can be. It is usually the gap between what we have and what we think we need to make us happy that gives way for our need to draw comparisons.
The truth is that we don’t have to acquire things to be happy or content with who we are. We need to appreciate what we have and learn to be content in ourselves, in our lives and with each other.
Once we learn to appreciate what we have; the right conditions will start to line up around our own contentment.
