5 Reasons Why You Should Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

Loading...

Why do you always compare yourself with others?

If you find yourself exhibiting this character, below are reasons why you have to stop.

COMPARISON STEALS YOUR JOY

I’m sure you’ve heard this saying a million times, but it’s very important to reiterate it.
Comparing yourself to others only makes your life difficult and brings you misery and pain.
Instead, try using others as motivation to work
harder and do better.

COMPARING YOURSELF WITH OTHERS HINDERS YOUR PROGRESS

If you spend your days comparing yourself to
other people’s achievements, you’ll never get anything accomplished. You must invest all your energy into pursuing your own dreams and
goals. Don’t waste your precious time on those of others.

YOU CAN’T PHYSICALLY CHANGE YOURSELF

You are you. You’ll always be you. You’ll never
be anyone else. And although it might be hard to believe for some of us, this is actually a
good thing. To explain why, here’s my favorite quote from author Jen Sincero:
There will never be anyone exactly like you. You
were given special gifts and talents to share
with the world, and even though everybody has
special gifts and talents, nobody will use theirs
quite the same way you do.
– Jen Sincero

So start believing in the value of your uniqueness!

NO ONE HAS A PERFECT LIFE

Stop comparing yourself because no one has a
perfect life No one has a perfect life.
Although you might think that a lot of people
are leading an amazing life with no down sides,
know that this isn’t true. Every single person on
this Earth experiences problems and challenges
throughout their lives. No one is exempt from
this. Some people are just better at keeping it
together, at least on the outside. So next time
you compare yourself to your friend or neighbor,
remember that you probably do not know every detail about their life.

SOMEONE WILL ALWAYS BE BETTER

I know this last point might seem a little harsh,
but it’s the reality. So the sooner you accept it,
the happier you’ll be. I remember, when I was
younger, I would cry my eyes out every time my
best friend got a better grade than me. So to
soothe me, my dad would say, “There will always be someone better than you at one point
in your life.” At first, I didn’t really understand
where he was going with it and frankly, it left
me with even more pain. But as I grew older, I
realized he was right. At some point in your life,
someone will beat you to whatever it is you’re
after. You can’t always win at everything in life.
All you have to do is work hard and try your best, and whatever is meant to be will fall into
place for you at the right moment.
