Do you ever compare yourself with others? If you do, one thing about yourself that you can't help not to compare with others, is it your intelligent, talents,beauty, etc.,

I used to do that alot, like i try to compare myself from my cousins and although sometimes im better than them ,there are times that they are better than me too. Then it happened to me that i realized that every person have their unique talents and that whats good for you might not be good for others as well. After that realization i tend to tell myself that we are not the same in so many ways and because of that a comparison can and may not be good at all. You should set goals for yourself instead of eyeing for what is it that others achieved already. Have a great day and happy mylotting

And im hoping that most of our co users in mylot will be able to understand this kind of point of view that we have. Yes comparing yourself once in a while is considered friendly but if you keep doing it at your demise then i think your being unfair to yourself too. As we both agreed upon we all have our own strengths and weaknesses so theres no point comparing them with others. Thanks for understanding and have a great day too

When I was growing up and in school I used to compare my examination results with my classmates and neighbors. For not telling myself I had done my best instead, I always ended up frustrated because i wasn't among the brightest. And it certainly wasn't healthy. It took me awhile to learn that there is a lot more to life than just examination results. Good examination result opens up more opportunities and prospects though but it's not a guarantee to a good life because that's the objective to an education. There were times I tell myself that in areas where I lag behind I make it up in other areas I'm good at. Today I'm just happy to be me...

Wow, that's was very wonderful and inspiring story of yours. You're right comparing our weaknesses with others will only bring us down and we should always remember to count what we can do, to appreciate our ability and talent and focus on that,not on what we can't. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

I can't help myself compare to others. Maybe its just nature for us that we some insecurities with in us. That's how I thought. For me I always compare about my body figure, every time I passed by with someone I always asked my friends or beau if I look like her or is that how fat I am? Those are the comparison that I always asked.

Yeah, sometimes we can't help not to compare our self with others because there's always some insecurities within us, as we are not perfect individual and what we see and think that's lack in us we wish to have it. Well I think its normal as long as we didn't come into the point where we didn't like ourself and wish to be like others. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Everyone of us is not perfect, that is why we have some insecurities. As long we did not come to a point to destroy our own imagine just to be someone else. You know undergo some surgery just to be like this and like that.

Well, that can't be good since we should learn to acknowledge and accept our own weaknesses as much as accepting our strength and talent. We are not perfect individual we make mistakes and failures but its alright because everyone does have imperfections. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

When I was young and growing up in a poor family, I would do so. However, over the years, I realized that I needed to be focused in all I do and other people should never affect my goals. Today, it does not matter who is who but I know what I want to achieve.

Well that's very good, what matter is you learn to accept for who you are and focus on the things that you want to achieve. Sometimes we often fail to achieve what we want in our life simply because we lost focus and look on what other have and wish we can have them. We fail to see that we are near so we give up. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

Yes, I don't think there are others who do not compare themselves to other people. My sin is intelligence, I compare myself to my friends and siblings when it comes to this criteria. I am highly competitive when it comes to intelligence

Yeah, you're right, no one is perfect and its only right for one not to compared others. Comparing others does hurt the person who's involve even though its not simply things. Anyway thank you for sharing with us and enjoy your day!

yes, i admit i do compare myself with others. But thats during my school years. As i grow old (hehe, im on my late 20's now), i overcome it. It come into my senses that im unique and incomparable and that i cant be like my friends or anybody.
