Your life is yours. You need to live it the way it suits you best. Comparison is one thing while competition is another. Comparing yourself with another makes you feel either too good or too unworthy, both of which are unrealistic. Each of us have our own kind of skills and talents which are different from the other, this is the way in which we are wired. So it is rather foolish to compare yourself to another and feel bad about yourself.
Such comparisons lead to building up of unhealthy emotions. Feeling of insecurity, poor self-worth and unrealistic opinion of self all harm you in numerous ways. These feelings could push some towards competing with the other, rivalry and mainly loss of the real camaraderie that was once there, while it would make others just give up on themselves.
Bitterness could result from such comparisons and competition. People could lose their balance in life as their whole focus is on getting better than the other. In this game of competition the joy of living is lost. Life becomes a rat race on a single track.
What is the point of such a life? No matter what you have you are still in competition and never able to enjoy the fruits of your hard work. there is always another goal to be achieved another race to run. By doing so you risk your lives and that of your loved ones.
All we gain for ourselves diseases, negative feelings and dissatisfaction with life alone.
The peace and the contentment of enjoying what we have and the ability to make the best of our family, friends and the resources have is never ours.
Once again let me reiterate, your life is yours. Live it the way the Lord made it for you. His plan for each one of us is unique. So let's life our life in contentment and happiness, enjoying what we have.
