We’re in a time where we compare ourselves to others having a better lifestyle than us, living a happier life than us.
Is it a healthy thing to do? Will it lead us somewhere better?
NO. It’s making us hollow beings. Living without the feeling of self-satisfaction is the worst way to live, when you aren’t happy with what you have and what you are or when there’s a lack of self worth it becomes difficult to survive. How? You ask!
Well, it is the worst way to kill one’s individuality where we forget who we are and try to be someone else. We envy them, make ourselves vulnerable and lose our peace of mind trying to be like someone else.
A famous quote by Zen Shin says-
A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it, IT JUST BLOOMS.
It’s good to get inspired by others. It’s totally healthy to try to achieve a goal and give a competition, but there’s a fine line between getting inspired and comparing your life to an extend where you start to feel your life is less astonishing and you start to lose confidence.
Let’s keep it straight and do the sane thing because our life is not less than others. We should get inspired and not competitive. Because what we have, is pretty much everything we need. Other’s success shouldn’t bother us.
