“You look pretty in that dress” – Anonymous.I had a crush with one girl. I love to see her smile. I like how she dresses, how she tied her hair. She looks so cute. I always teased her look, teased how she was talking, but no one knew that I had the crush on her.Are you wondering how long I had known her? We know each other since we were a little kid. Our parents had a good relationship, for almost 20 years. She’s my best female friend in my hometown. She always came to help me when I was bullied. Since then, we’ve been a friend since we were 9 years old.Never had in my thought that I would have a crush with my best friend. But, that is possible, right?We’ve entered the same school since we still in primary school and up until now, we still entered the same college, same universities, but she was in her ballet classroom and I was more into social studies. Our faculties were apart, but when we had time, we would meet. As our relationship as a friend grow longer, and we became older, I r…

3 reasons why you should not compare yourself with anyone

Remembering what a long journey I had gone to achieve at a certain level. It took a lot of struggle and time consuming, even had to take out some money. At certain circumstances, the feeling of being left far behind was always haunting my own mind. I never felt enough with my own self. It's kind of saddening. Somehow, you had to push the negative thoughts away and move on with your life.

And because of that, we often compare ourselves because we never felt enough about what we had. Truthfully, we want to be like the person we aim for, to satisfy our own feeling. That is not good, it's torturing. Why should we compare ourselves with anyone else if we know that we had a limit?  It's nothing wrong, but at some point, we just need to be grateful for what we have. 

Therefore, at this time, there are 101 reasons for us to not comparing ourselves with anyone. However, are we able to remember all of the reasons? I bet out of 10, only 1 or 2 we are able to follow. But, nothing is impossible, is it? As a beginner, let just focus on 3 basic things for not comparing yourself with anyone.

Here are 3 good reasons why you should not compare yourself with anyone.


3 reasons why you should not compare yourself with anyone

1. You are worthy enough.

The words worthy defines as a value. You had a value. No matter what emotion you are right now, you are valuable. Why? because we are human beings. And every human being deserves to be worth enough. Though we know that we are not perfect in certain things, or we might get ugly or get mad, we are still worthy. Mistakes can be done again and again, but if we rise up, and do a kind thing, it's nothing compared to any feels in this world. Comparing yourself to anyone just makes you felt the pressure because you see what best on the other instead of yourself, and you feel bad about yourself. Remember that, each of us had a unique personality and timeline, we are worthy enough for whatever circumstances we are. Stop compare and live. 

2. Nobody is perfect.

Who is the best among the best? Who is the winner? Who is placed number one? That question often troubled us for wanted to always be perfect in anyways. Just to remind everybody that no matter, what good you are, there always a person who is much better than you are. Same with the person, always have the rivalry between the best among the best. The point is, everybody is not perfect. We had flaws, we had limited things that we can't do. Thus, it perfectly shows how imperfectly we are. 

3. Life is only temporary.

Nothing is permanent. Someday we get old and we died. So, what the purpose of comparing ourselves with others? Yes, some people are lucky enough to have everything in their life, wealth, pleasure, work and luxury. In fact, I myself do get jealous of them. But, what the point of being jealous of it, if we know that is only temporary. I am a Christian, and I was taught to be grateful everyday even you are rich or you are poor. Because I do believe, in every situation, the Lord will provide. It's nothing to compare with others, but always remember that though you had nothing, you should grateful and do kind anyway, because life is only temporary.
