Finding Contentment By Taking Control Of Comparisons

-Unknown

Many people get stuck in comparing themselves to others and feeling that they don’t “measure up”.  This, of course, leads to feelings of insecurity, low self-esteem, sadness, anxiety and general dissatisfaction with themselves and their life.  Learning ways to stop comparing yourself to others can benefit you tremendously and can lead to feeling more content with yourself, less envious of others and more focused on what you need to do in your own life, regardless of what others are doing.
