Comparing ourselves to others.

‘Let everyone be sure to do his very best for me, for then he will have the personal satisfaction of work well done and won’t need to compare himself to anyone else’. (Galatians 6:4 LB)

The above is a text from the bible. I agree with this text. When we strive to be the best that we can be, things are put into perspective. We don’t need to live the lives that others have in mind for us. I have encountered comparisons being made through my own personal experiences in life. These comparisons had had a negative effect on me.

If you look through Facebook and other social media platforms, you will see how your friends and family are having a great time, they have busy social lives, they go on vacations to exotic locations, they show the new products they have bought. The list goes on. It could easily bring one down. This would especially be the case when we do not have the aforementioned things. However, what we do have is our gifts. The key is to discover our gifts and to develop them once we have discovered them. Our lives and the lives of others will improve when we do this.
