When we compare ourselves to others, it can lead to feelings of inferiority and undermine our self-esteem.
Comparing your life to the lives of others can foster a sense of discontentment and make you lose sight of your unique talents and abilities.
Comparing yourself with other people can be discouraging and lead to feelings of sadness and hopelessness. It can feel like the death of joy.
A great way to cope with the negative pattern of comparison is to spend time helping those who are less fortunate.
