Have you felt the gut wrenching punch of the 'I'm not good enough' voice that can often berate us when we get the measuring stick out and compare ourselves to others? “She has more of this and more of that. He is better at this or better at that.”
We compare our looks, we compare our partners, we compare our lifestyles, our jobs, our children, our bank balances. We hear what other people are doing, we see the photo edition of their lives on facebook or on television and we assume that they are so much better or worse off than us.
Our self worth goes up and down like a yoyo depending on who we are comparing ourselves to. It is a crazy battle of superiority and inferiority complexes! Nuts nuts nuts! It is a sure fire way to be miserable if we spend the whole time measuring ourselves against others.
Does one wave in the ocean compare itself to another wave. “Oh dude you are so much bigger and fatter than me”. No! A wave simple ripples across the surface of life in all its natural glory whatever the quality, shape or size.
