Everyone whether young or old at one point in time have tried to be like someone else either intentionally or unintentionally. For whatever reason it maybe, comparison designs to make one less of an original and more of a copy.

Imagine if orange tasted just like Apple or chicken tasted just like beef, wouldn’t you be bored. I mean buying orange at the fruit store is because of the sweetness from its juice and the rest and buying Apple for completely different taste and feel but if they both taste alike, wouldn’t you complain?. Yes you would, Comparison makes us loose our variety, what makes us different and unique.

That is exactly what comparison does because you have centered your heart so much on having what others have or being like someone you begin to slowly loose your originality , what makes you unique.

Comparison breeds unhappiness, jealousy, anger, frustration in you. It is not a habit to cultivate, so how then can you help yourself and be you unapologetically.

Accept the difference : Accept the fact that you are different from other persons. Accept the fact that there would definitely be people that would do better than you, or have things than you, it shouldn’t be a source of worry because the bottom line should be you becoming a better version of yourself everyday.

Attitude of Gratitude : Most people fall into the trap of comparison because they never look at what they have but what others have. Take your time and begin to count all your blessings, it renews your focus and refreshes you. When you are thankful for what you have now you would worry less about what you don’t have because you can’t always have what you desire. The lack of contentment is the reason alot of people have forced themselves into criminal acts and so many unthinkable things. The end results of being not contented with what you have is always tragedy because you will end up pushing yourself beyond a breaking point. Everyone is blessed except if you feel your blessing isn’t enough and you want to force yourself in getting what isn’t yours. It’s not actually bad to aspire for things you don’t presently have but aspire for them not because you feel a certain person is better than you but because you seek success on your own accord.

Know your competitor : You must understand that there is a competition ongoing but it is not between you and other people. You are your own competition. Who you are and who you want to be. This is simply you tasking yourself on your own accord to become a better version of yourself every passing day. Make plans to feel the gap on who you are and who you want to be tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, in a decade and so on. With that you are challenging yourself and have made yourself your number one contender and competition and not because you comparing yourself with a person because of Inferiority complex. Everyone is inferior in ways and superior in other ways.
