Why Compare Yourself?

Comparing your life with others is hurtful and useless, odious and foolish. If you match your life with inferiors, it brings a perverted satisfaction which means nothing; and if you liken it to superiors, it creates discontent by focusing attention on what you don’t have.
 
Why compare? You wouldn’t swap if you could; for it involves another’s health, disposition, appetite, habits, friends, loves, hates, sorrows, interests—not just his talent or wealth. For you, success and happiness are found in being yourself and in living your own life in whatever state you are compelled to live it.
 
Leroy Brownlow
 
 
“ Oh, don’t worry; we wouldn’t dare say that we are as wonderful as these other men who tell you how important they are! But they are only comparing themselves with each other, using themselves as the standard of measurement. How ignorant!”

2 Corinthians 10:12
