“A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it, it just blooms.”
It’s all too easy to get caught up in the comparison trap. It’s also very easy to tell yourself things like, “the grass isn’t always greener…” but still have feelings of jealousy and diminished worth. Instead try to compare yourself to yourself. Am I happier today than I was yesterday? Am I healthier? Am I making steps toward improvement? What can I change and what can’t I change? Am I blooming?
