It’s natural to start comparing yourself to others when you see them with a quality you desire. Soon feelings of inadequacy or resentment may build up with statements running around your head like ‘it’s so easy for them, they don’t even need to try’ or ‘why can’t I be more like that?’
As cliché as it may sound no one’s life is perfect and you very well may have strengths they lack – indeed they may be facing difficulty in other areas that you know nothing about. That doesn’t make you better or worse, just simply different, so before you compare yourself a better question to ask is perhaps, could I learn something from them?
Have you ever looked at your more confident counterparts and compared yourself to them? Do you have any tips and tricks of your own that have helped you to stop comparing in the past? If you longer compare yourself to others how has this change impacted you?
