No matter what you do, someone won’t be pleased. Someone will think your choices are wrong. And someone will tell you what should do instead. No matter which path you take, someone will seem to be doing better. Someone will have more than you. And someone else’s life may look more impressive on paper. If you’re being true to yourself, none of that will matter because you’ll have something more satisfying than approval and the illusion of “success”: a life that feels right for you, based on your own wants, needs, values, and priorities.

Just because you’re not doing what other people are doing, that doesn’t mean you’re failing or falling behind. You’re charting your own course and staying true to yourself, even though it would be easier to join the crowd. You’re creating a life you can fall in love with instead of falling in line. You’re finding the courage to do what’s right for you, even though it’s uncertain and scary and hard. Give yourself some credit, because these are all reasons to be proud.

Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey. A path that’s right for someone else won’t necessarily be a path that’s right for you. And that’s okay. Your journey isn’t right or wrong, or good or bad. It’s just different.

Don’t underestimate yourself by comparing yourself with others. It’s our differences that make us unique and beautiful.

A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.

The earlier you learn that you should focus on what you have, and not obsess about what you don’t have, the happier you will be.

Doing your best is more important than being the best.

Comparison is waste of energy. Every individual is unique with unique talents. Find your passion and live your best life.

Personality begins where comparison leaves off. Be unique. Be memorable. Be confident. Be proud.

Don’t underestimate your worth by comparing yourself with others.

Happiness is found when you stop comparing yourself to other people.

The best way to enjoy your own life is to stop comparing it to others.

The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.

Enjoy your own life without comparing it with that of another.

Why compare yourself with others? No one in the entire world can do a better job of being you than you.
