Who do we see ourselves as; an inferior version of someone else or do we see ourselves as someone totally unique. If you see yourself as totally unique you are right; there is no other human being on this planet that is like you. You have talents that no one else has; abilities that no one else has and a purpose in life different from anyone else. That means you are not inferior to anyone, you are unique in your own way and no one else has your exact qualities, Why then do some of us feel inferior or less than others? Do we feel less capable, less smart, less attractive? Do we feel we have less money, less success, that they are better looking, have more friends than we do? This is wrong thinking; remember we are unique, we can not be compared to others, nor them to us.
There may be areas in our life where we need to improve, not because we don’t measure up to someone else but because we have the ability to be more and are not reaching our potential. We have special abilities; that are only our’s and if we are to fulfill our purpose here, we have to use them to our best ability. If we are over weight and unhealthy because of it; we need to address it, not because we weigh more than someone else but because we may not be able to fulfill our purpose here if we don’t. We should not compare ourselves to others because they are different from us, they have their own unique talents and abilities and we have ours.The only thing we need to compare is where we are in life to where we could be with our own special abilities. Ask ourselves, am I doing what I can do.
You may not ever be wealthy or be famous, you have your own lessons to learn and it may take a different path to learn them. Whatever happens is there for a purpose; it is up to us to see the lesson in it. We may think that what happens is so terrible that we could not possibly learn from it but we can. The more hardship we have the more compassionate we can be to others or the more cold-hearted and bitter we may become. Our choice, do we let it teach us or destroy us.
So never compare or let someone else compare you to others. You are one of a kind and you have unique abilities; you have the potential that no one else has. Why would you have been born with these unique abilities if it was not for a special purpose that only you can fulfill. When you fulfill your purpose you will be happy and it will not matter to you if someone has something you don’t; for you know that you have something that they don’t and never will have. Be happy; be the best you that you can possibly be, that is all anyone can ask for. The most important responsibility we have in this life; is to ourselves.
