Why Do We Compare?

If you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid – Albert Einstein

In today’s day and age it is so easy to compare ourselves to others.

We scroll through any number of the dopamine inducing social media sites and realize our inadequacies.

However, what we often don’t see is the struggle. The struggle that everybody inevitably faces, but nobody wants to talk about. Why would somebody want people to know they’re going through a tough time when they can simply post all of the good things for everyone to see and comment on?

Life is not all sunshine and rainbows forever. It’s not like that for anyone, no matter how hard they try to make it look like it is.

Another thing we must realize is our individuality.

I am not made to follow the plan you are, and the same goes the other way. I am my own person, somebody who has his own goals, dreams, and struggles. They are different than anybody else’s.

So, if we all struggle.

And, we all are individuals.

Then my question is…

Why do we compare?
