Comparison is the thief of joy.
Comparison is a pretty natural part of being human. We do it to feel better about ourselves. We do it to validate that we aren’t good enough. We do it to ignore what is really going on.
Think of someone you compare yourself to. If life was a box of crayons, how many crayons do you think are in their crayon box?
How many crayons are in your box?
They are creating their masterpiece from life with their box of crayons. You are creating yours from your box of crayons.
Both are beautiful masterpieces. One is not better than the other.
What might happen if you allow the person you compare yourself to to create their masterpiece with their crayons; and give yourself permission to create your masterpiece with your crayons?
