When we compare ourselves to others, we are not helping ourselves, we are destroying ourselves.

Ask yourself: Why am I comparing myself to other people? Are we created the same? Are we pursuing the same goals in life?

If you compare yourself to others, you are making yourself inferior to them. You are telling yourself that they are better than you. You are telling yourself that they worth more than you do. You are telling yourself that you do not deserve anything in life. More important, you are planting a bad seed in your mind- the seed of inferiority.

Remember, only you can make yourself feel inferior. Stop making yourself feel inferior. You can do that by changing your thoughts about yourself.

The only way to stop comparing yourself to others is to see yourself as a great person, as a unique person.

Eleanor Roosevelt said, “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

Yes, only you can do that. It is within your power. You have the power to control your mind. If you can control your mind, you can control what and how you see and think about yourself.

Mark Twain said, “Comparison is the death of joy.”

Stop comparing yourself to others. They have their own issues to solve. You are unique. You are you. You are not like anyone and you can never become like anyone. They can never become you.
