Do you think there are more people better than you or worse than you?

Why does everything a competition? I've no idea. But it happens! "I admire you so much", Someone told me yesterday, which was pretty funny! It was weird to hear that, you know. I had nothing to be admired, so far as I was concerned! On the other hand, I may feel jealous or envy some other people as well. For example, I may tell you I admire your...um...something! Compared to someone's something, all any of us can be either better or worse than him or her! I just wondered... Do you think there are more people better than you or worse than you?

Hi hiddenwing! I'm not quite sure what you mean! Of course there will always be people better than you and worse than you. It all depends on how you look at things. If you are talking about the kind of person someone is that is one thing. If you are referring to what a person has as far as money and material possessions that is something else. Do I think that some people are better off than me then I would have to say yes! But better than I am as a person, not necessarily! I know that I am the best person that I can be! I try to be helpful to whomever I can whenever I can! I try also not to be jealous of people. That is a very bad trait to have. It will only cause pain and anger. As long as you are happy with yourself and who you are that is all that matters!

Jesus Christ is our standard. We should only be concerned as to how well we measure up to Him. Not that any human could reach perfection, but that is for what we should strive. Now, I'll comment on your question. Comparison seems to be natural in this day, but in your question you failed to state the nature of the comparison, beauty, talent, honesty, friendliness, generosity, height, weight, driving ability, age, etc. What makes one better or worse than another?

Everyone has strengths and weaknesses and I don't feel better or worse than anyone. When I was younger I truly believed everyone was prettier, cleverer and more able than me. I now know my strengths and weaknesses and try not to judge people even though there are times when you just cn't help it.

When I was younger, I was a little overconfident. It was a mistake anyway! Now, I always apprecitae others' strong point and learn it!

Everyone has its strong points. If we think we are better, we will be positive to most of the things. Also, just have a little more faith! Have a great day!

Hi hiddenwing, There is an old saying that "there is a little good in the worse of us and a little bad in the best of us", and I think that is true. I never think of people as better or worse than me, we are just different. I just don't like the idea of calling people good or bad because it just isn't true. Blessings.

Thanks for your response! I think it is very reasonable. The teachers may talk about good students or bad students. In fact, they sometimes talk nonsense too! haha Have a great day!

I dont see ppl as being better or worse partly because thats an arrogant attitude and partly because its illogical...we are all different so trying to compare just doesnt make sense to me..

Yeah, you are right! For me, I will still feel jealous of someone's something! But good luck to the lucky guys anyway. I will learn from others' strong points to make up my deficiencies
