Stop comparing

Just stop the comparing! Yes, some people have it better than you, and some people have it worse. This will always be true. No matter how good or bad you have it, someone else has it better, and someone else has it worse.

If you have it good, does it really matter that someone else has it better? At some point, good has got to be good enough. If you have enough money to supply all your needs, and even some of your wants, the fact that someone else has more does not really affect you. Learn to count your blessings.

If you have it bad, the fact that someone else has it worse may help you to put your suffering into perspective, but it doesn’t take away any of your pain. If you fell down and got hurt, and someone else fell down and got hurt worse, you may feel lucky that your fall wasn’t any worse, but it was still as bad as it was, and you are still in pain.

We all have good things that happen, and we all have trials and tribulations. Live your life the best way you can, and stop comparing yourself to others.
