Comparison mainly brings you two things. One is happiness, while the other is a feeling of satisfaction.But it depends on the thing you use to make comparisons. Sometimes comparison gives you the motivation to raise yourself. But it depends on whom you compare yourself to. With a better person or a worse person? We normally do it even if he is a better person or whoever was a worse person.

When you compare yourself with someone who is greater than you, the comparison can sometimes bring you unhappiness. But happiness can motivate you to surpass that person. Sometimes it can demoralize you when you feel that they are very lucky to have the intelligence to having the gift of appearance with them.

If the comparison helps you become a better person when you are comparing yourself with another person, then why should you still stop comparing yourself with others?

Why You Should Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

We often look at people who seem to have more success, wealth, beauty, or happiness than us, and we feel inferior or envious. This can lead to low self-esteem, resentment, and frustration. However, comparing ourselves to others is not only unfair, but also unrealistic and unproductive.

Here are some reasons why you should stop comparing yourself to others and some tips on how to do it.

First of all, comparing yourself to others is unfair because you are not seeing the whole picture. You are only focusing on the aspects that you perceive as better or worse, but you are ignoring the many other factors that make up a person’s life. For example, you may envy someone’s career success, but you don’t know what sacrifices they had to make, what challenges they faced, or what personal problems they have.

You may feel inferior to someone’s physical appearance, but you don’t know what health issues they have, what insecurities they struggle with, or what effort they put into maintaining their looks. You may admire someone’s happiness, but you don’t know what sorrows they have endured, what fears they have overcome, or what gratitude they practice. In other words, you are comparing your behind-the-scenes footage with their highlight reel, which is neither fair nor accurate.

Secondly, comparing yourself to others is unrealistic because you are not the same as anyone else. You have your own unique combination of strengths, weaknesses, talents, interests, values, goals, and experiences. You have your own personality, preferences, and perspectives. You have your own journey, challenges, and opportunities.

Therefore, it makes no sense to measure yourself against someone else’s standards or expectations. You are not competing with anyone else; you are only competing with yourself. You should focus on your own growth and improvement, not on how you rank or compare to others.

Thirdly, comparing yourself to others is unproductive because it does not help you achieve anything. It only wastes your time and energy, which could be better spent pursuing your own goals and dreams. It also robs you of your joy and satisfaction with what you have and who you are. It prevents you from appreciating your achievements and celebrating your progress. It distracts you from your purpose and vision.

You should celebrate your successes and learn from your failures. You should be proud of yourself and happy for others.
