Comparisons

We are conditioned from an early age to make comparisons.  Throughout childhood, we were compared to siblings and classmates for performance.  In adulthood, we are compared to colleagues for professional advancement.  Comparisons serve as a rating system to help to identify preferences for specific situations.

When it comes to self-worth, there is no place for comparisons.  Healthy self-worth involves full acceptance of oneself, without judgement.  It involves loving yourself for who you are today, flaws included.  Flaws contribute to character and uniqueness.  Refrain from making any type of comparisons, including comparing yourself to who you were years ago.  Embrace the unique individual you are today and focus on bringing out the best in you!
