self worth

I have never really understood why someone else achieving or failing at a thing makes any different to someone else’s self worth.

There will always be people better or worse than yourself – and as a consequence, you are better or worse than others

You can only live the life that you have, so celebrate anyone doing something well and have compassion for those who don’t; but don’t measure yourself against other people, your only competition for your life’s worth is you.

  1. Comparing yourself to other people is a no-win practice, because who compares himself to someone living in a tent village in the Sudan? We only compare ourselves to those who have more and better.

    That said, I still do it. Not because I want to but because I have so many mentally self-destructive habits that I don’t know which one to fix first.
