comparing by ErinBird comparing by ErinBird
"Avoid comparing yourself with others . If you do , you'll lose the chance to see the beauty in you !" - Ritu Ghatourey

I saw this quote in my school and I could really relate to it . A while ago , I would literally compare myself to everyone I knew/see and I always just felt really depressed when I did as I always thought to myself 'why can't I be as pretty as that girl ?' or 'why can't I be as smart as that guy ?' and all these kind of thoughts . It took me quite a long time to realise that no matter how much I compared myself to these people , I would never change to be like these people just based upon negative thoughts . And therefore , I slowly stopped comparing myself with others and became happy with who I am . Why be a second version of someone else when you can be the greatest version of yourself ? So stop comparing yourself to other people and let your natural beauty (inside and out) shine through .

Simple photo today I guess , I've been so busy this week I didn't even think i'd have time to make a photo ! Ah well , something is better than nothing ! Take care and keep smiling , you little cuties .

I beg your pardon, but this is nonsense. There is no alternative to comparing, quitting comparing would mean deactivating consciousness in general.
Back again to stop thinking and be happy ^^

Well obviously we can't help but compare ourselves to others as it's something we can't help but what I mean by this quote is that don't overly-compare or literally obsess in measuring up yourself to every single individual you see that it comes to a point where you feel worthless because you don't have their characteristic

I see your point, but as you told about "stop comparing" in the desrciption I felt bothered, or better said pretty jelaous, because it is actually  an issue for myself.
And  since I am struggling with exactly that point, I only can say; that shit is rather serious, and the sentence is attractive as an idea, but not more than a wish (to me). May somebody else find a practical way to use this well meant advice! ^^

“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and - in spite of True Romance magazines - we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely - at least, not all the time - but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don't see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.” - Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway
