Comparison is the thief of happiness because when we do it, we simply put ourselves in a position where we find our purpose, whatever we stand for, useless. Of no worth at all.
Whether you compare yourself to others in physique, finance, intelligence, etc., you compare when you value others' possession highly and yours less – something you want to envy.
Life is not a competition, but we make it. And when we’re in a competition, there are 99% chances that we will definitely do the comparison thing: self vs others.
This means that no matter where you are, what you do, and what good position you might have, you’ll always consider other people better than yourself.
When we see more in others’ plates, we don’t accept what we have got, which leads us to compare ourselves to others.
Seeing others doing well, doubting ourselves whether we have chosen the wrong path, whether we will be successful or not, many such doubt-filled questions compel us to make comparisons
You’d often hear Indian people saying that what less do they have than the children of Mukesh Ambani? Why do his children have all sorts of luxury, and they don’t.
If your economic condition is bad just like the other person, then you'd do no discrimination against them. But if it's vice versa, you'll start comparing
No matter how good we are on our path, as soon as someone better than us comes our way, we simply put our guard down.
