Don't Compare

4/1/2009   Comment on This


Comparison is a horrible habit to have. Let me give you a few examples. If you have kids, it's tempting to compare the negative behavior to the positive one, ie, you have two kids, one is an athlete, the other is not.

When a parent compares the two kids, it is very rare that the parent goes to the stronger athlete and advises them to help the weaker sibling. It usually goes like this: "How come you can't play baseball like your brother?"

Or someone might talk about their work situation: "My last boss was wonderful, my current boss does such and such."

How about comparing YOURSELF with others? Do you see a pattern that you always compare yourself to others who you think have a better life? Think about it. When you compare, you are not grateful, you are jealous or whiney to yourself: "I am going to do my spring break in Florida. My friends are going to Mexico. I am getting the wrong end of the stick. That's not fair."

So I say to someone who complains like that: hey dummy, you get to go away. Are you catching my drift? Don't compare yourself, your children, or anything you have because you will always be on the bottom or put the person you are talking to on the bottom.

By the way, if you don't like the situation, shut up and change it. You made the choice to do whatever you did and you are comparing because of the choices you made.

Am I being too harsh? Let me know.
