Comparison : violence against your own self


"Don't compare your life with others cause everyone has a unique path to follow"

Someone has rightly said it that we all have different destination and all our lives are unique in its own way therefore cannot be compared.

All these years, I’ve compared myself to others so many times. I’ve compared myself to others when it came to academics, looks, career, and more. I know that it sounds disturbing, but without accepting that, it would be hard to stop.

In fact, everyone has done it at some point in their life.People often tend to compare themselves to others to determine how good they are doing in life and rate their personal experiences on that. However, that generally doesn’t lead to feeling too good about yourself. In addition to that who actually wants to judge themselves in a negative way?

While in some cases, it can be motivating and inspiring to compare yourself to others, but in most circumstances it is negative and can lead to:

A feeling of defeat, like when you feel that you aren’t good enough as compared to someone else. Unhappiness, when you expect happiness out of comparison with others all the time.A waste of time; If you spend all of your time comparing yourself to others, you will never have enough time to do what you really want.

Now, I know that just telling you to stop comparing yourself to others is easier said than done. In today’s world, with social media and how everything seems to be on full display for the world, it can be easy to compare yourself to others.But, you need to stop doing it in a negative way. Sure, you may not be able to reach a goal as quickly as someone else or it may require more hard work, but that doesn’t mean that everything is impossible for you. Everyone is on a different path, and there are people who are better or worse off than you.Instead of comparing your path to those around you, you should focus on what you can do to make your dream a reality.

 I hope you understand the difference between a positive and negative comparison in life.
