4. Ask yourself if the comparison is truly fair.
It may be tempting to compare yourself to others when there’s so many other people who live in the same world as you. But, comparing your own life to someone else’s can leave you blindsighted about your own strengths and talents. You might not think you’re attractive, smart, or creative enough when you think your role model seems perfect. Even the most well-accomplished people in this world have their own flaws and insecurities to work through. If you’re going to compare yourself to someone else, do it in a way that benefits your well-being, rather than tearing your own sense of self down.
