Is It Worth to Compare Yourself with Others?
Hello Everyone! Welcome Again to my blog post. Here I will talk about Comparison of yourself with others, either done by you or someone else. Its very interesting subject for me to discuses.
Now a days, stress is very common phenomenon which is unifying the whole world’s people together. Stress has no issues with Cast, Colors, Religion, Height, Poverty, Language, Country, State, Name, Fame etc…. It treats each and everyone equally. You believe or not, but it is a bitter truth, that persons are not much upset with own problems but more with others happiness. somewhere, the reason behind this desperation is Comparison. I will take simple example of a wife happily watching her social media updates and suddenly she started fighting with her husband by saying, look at Mrs. Sharma. she posted the pics of her Manali trip. See how much Mr. Sharma love his wife And you can’t even take us for a Dinner also. A woman , who was polite and calm got disturbed and furious within seconds.
While we starts comparing our self with others , an emotion of jealousy arises within us and we go through under desperation. The root Causes of jealousy is feeling of insecurity, fear of loosing, lake of self confidence and a poor self image. We think that others have better skills and qualities. We underestimates our abilities and without trying we find a conclusion that it is my destiny. Generally we think, everyone is better than us but we are only seeing the image one is portraying in front of us. We all are human beings and we have our own strengths and weaknesses. It is human nature to remember the impact of others on us.
Stop comparing yourself with others. Don’t bind yourself within limits. Be limitless to find out your strengths. Be yourself and keep around only those who accept you in the same way you are and don’t waste your time and energy to those who comparing you with others and wants you to loose your own identity. Always remember that, “No one can hurt you without your permission”.
Never complain your parents for what they couldn’t give you but always appreciate them because their love is selfless and they always do their best for you. Don’t blame others to your failure. Admit your mistakes and make sure to not repeat them again.
“We judge ourselves by our intentions. And others by their actions.”
There are two words Competition and Comparison. There is a very fine line between them. Competition can motivate us to improve ourselves and to learn from others that have skills and abilities that we don’t yet have. Or it can help those that have not yet acquired our level of skill.
If we speak of comparing apples and oranges, it will be an unequal and unfair comparison; it is same as when we start comparing our homes, our parenting, our children, our ability to make balloon animals, or to do business. “Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” (Albert Einstein)
When we make unhealthy comparisons we do not see progress or strengths in ourselves and others because we are focused on what could be or should be. Someone may be better than us due to some God gifted talents, but hard work and Continuous practice can beat any talent.
So, Stop making comparisons of yours with others. Compete people for your betterment. Stay happy with whatever you have.
