You know what? You shouldn’t compare yourself to someone because you are you, and they are them. Don’t be stressed about this because we born different ways.
Said Jon Acuff, “Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s middle.”
Comparison always bring chaotic. I think you should believe in yourself rather than comparing. Just because you cannot commit or doing something well as others, it doesn’t mean you cannot do it for the rest of your life. So what? Don’t compare, move on! One day, you can achieve it. Believe in yourself, be strong and give yourself motivation. Maybe it is not so detail about why we shouldn’t compare ourselves with others. Check out these possible reasons why we shouldn’t do so.
1. Lose Concentration
In your daily life, you shouldn’t compare yourself to anyone. The fact is that you will lose concentration. Why? Once you lose concentration, you are living in insecure world. So, stay concentrate in what you need. Achieve it, successful person really needs high concentration. Stop playing the comparison game, nothing gain in your life.
2. Comparisons cause depression
Have you ever compare yourself to your friends? It seems too awkward to ask this kind of question. As a matter of fact, everyone compares himself or herself to their friends. This leads them feel depressed. For example: When your friend is successful in study or work, you cannot make it like him or her; so it makes you feel upset and jealous. The root cause of depression comes from jealousy. In this case, you may probably no longer talk to your friends because of your idiot comparison. In brief, comparison brings depression. Avoid this, then you are going to live in harmony!
3. Insecure feeling
Stop questions yourself why they are better than you. It is such a worse question to ask because it makes you feel insecure. If you feel insecure, you are afraid of doing something. When you are afraid of doing something, you cannot achieve your goal or ambitious. Why make it as life barrier? Take it easy, no one is better than who. Believe in yourself! We all are human being, we need to try our best. Live your life to the fullest.
4. Kill Happiness
If you don’t give up in comparison game, you are in trouble. It is like you are trying to kill your own happiness. To keep your happiness healthy, don’t compare yourself to others. Remember that, no one loves you like you love yourself!
5. No one is perfect
Researcher, scholar, president/prime minister and more, they are skillful people but you know they are not perfect. They also fail one, twice or several times, they don’t give up in what they are doing. It means that even well educated people, they still fail. And how about you? A simple person? Give up? Don’t give up, give yourself another try. They said, “They one who doesn’t fall, doesn’t stand up”. Or, “If plan A didn’t work. The alphabet has 25 more letters! Stay cool!” I hope these can be your motivation not to giving up because no one is perfect.
