Comparison is the thief of joy


How many times a day do you compare yourself to someone or something else? I am extremely guilty of this. I compare my success to others which I shouldn't do at all. I thought I would talk about this in a post because it is something that has been on my mind a lot recently. 

The quote is quite obvious about what it means. If you compare what you have/look like/do to other people, you aren't going to be happy. I am so bad at this because for me, if I see a good blog design,  I loose confidence in my design and I start disliking it. It is the same with test results, for example, I could get 15/20 and be happy with the mark because last time i only got 13. However if I find out that someone got 18, I start feeling awful because I feel like I am awful at the subject, even though I have improved. 

The thing is, it is wrong to compare your test result/blog design/hair/whatever to someone else's because they are completely different things. You wouldn't compare a fishes ability to swim with a giraffes ability to swim would you?

This week, I challenge you to not compare yourself or something you have done to anyone else. If you do, think of all the things you love about your life. What is your opinion on this?
