26 Jul Are You Comparing Your Inside To Someone Else’s Outside?
“The reason why we struggle with insecurity is that we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.” Steven Furtick
The theme of comparing ourselves to others seems to have emerged this week. My meditation teacher davidji actually assigned homework on the topic this week. As he says, paraphrasing, we are all unique, so comparing ourselves to anyone else is like comparing “bananas to oranges to grapes to rocks to geodes to leaves to birds – how can you compare those?”
When we see the picture that other people present to the world, their “highlight reel”, we have no idea what really goes on behind the scenes. We can’t know what pain they may suffer or what trials and sacrifices they made to have what they have.
Don’t compare yourself with anyone. Simply make up your mind to be a better person today than you were yesterday. Be better in this moment than you were 10 minutes ago and leave everyone else out of the equation. Keep your eyes turned to your vision for your life.
