4 thoughts on “Competing Vs Comparing: Dealing With The Negative Effects Of Comparison

  1. Great piece.

    I have always disliked comparison. Nothing good ever comes out of it when we compare our individual lives with that of others.
    Whereas healthy competition is good and needed for increased productivity and gain, it becomes unhealthy when we stop seeing the good in our selves and the things we have achieved. It becomes toxic when we no longer find satisfaction in ourselves and our work because we think our efforts are nothing in comparison to others. That’s when disappointments, frustrations depressions set in.

    Thank you for this piece. It feels good to know that I am not alone in this line of thought

  2. Very true. Its best to just truly be yourself, find your path and walk in it. Find what works for you and stick to that. You can’t be everyone at once, neither can you achieve everyone’s dreams but you can find your strength, be grateful for it and leverage on it.
