How to Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

A1. Recognise that comparing yourself to others is a destructive habit. It’s a recipe for low self-esteem as there will always be people who are ‘better’ than you and ‘worse’ than you. In the end, it leads nowhere, wastes a lot of time, and leaves you feeling worthless and inadequate.

A2. Recognise that we are all unique. No two people are identical. We have different outlooks, we view and interpret things differently, we have different life experiences, and we feel different emotions.

A3. Stop being afraid to simply be who you are.  No-one has the right to dictate what you will do, think what you will think, or determine who you’ll be. You deprive yourself and others if you bury the real you. (And if you feel you’ve lost yourself then try to find yourself again.)

A4. Forgive yourself for your past - for what you did and who you were. We all have regrets – but that is not your destiny.

A5. Don’t be afraid to put your own needs first at times. Don’t be a people pleaser; establish boundaries.

A6. Learn to own your emotions. They are part of who you are. Don’t bury or repress them for fear of being judged.

A7. Do whatever makes you happy because it makes you happy. The more fulfilled you, the less you’ll want to be like others.
