This is an amazing world! In all of the seven and a half billion people in the world, you are unique. There is no one like you. When you acknowledge that and look at all of the qualities that make you special, you can truly embrace life. One way to do this is to quit comparing yourself to others.
We are conditioned to think we need to be like others, and as we get older, we begin making comparisons as others begin making those same comparisons. It begins when we hear our parents comparing themselves to others. We use that as our model. It is not a good use of time to compare ourselves to others because our uniqueness makes us incomparable. When we do this, we are looking at the outside, rather than within where we will find our purpose in life. It takes courage to live a life of purpose.
Each of us has very special gifts, and we are here for specific reasons. When we accept ourselves and appreciate how special we are, we realize that we are going through experiences for a reason. Valuing our uniqueness enables us to live our life purposefully. Try this and embrace who you are. Life gets much easier and more fulfilling.
