The Comparing Game

I was scrolling through my feed today (as ya’ do), and I came across this tweet.

And I was immediately reminded that when we place our value in direct comparison with people around us, our worth is dictated by outside forces. We are that same blue dot either way, but when we compare ourselves to others, we get a distorted view of who we are.

Maybe we surround ourselves with comparatively ‘less impressive’ people to feel more important, or we are surrounded by titans of talent and we feel small and insignificant. Both are terrible ways to live.

We are the blue dot. We are never bigger or smaller than we actually are. And the more we decide to compare, the less we value ourselves and others around us.
