The more you compare yourself to others, the more sad your life will become. It might not happen in an instance, but if you continue to do so time and time again, eventually, you will experience it. The need to always be better than others, not wanting to lose or be left out, are all thieves of your joy. The joy of being and doing as is, without any external pressure. Imagine how good it feels to not need to compare yourself with others but instead allowing the essence of doing or being in the same or similar situation motivate you to be the best that you can be. Realising that the true battle is and will always be with your own self. To becoming a better version of you, day by day.
