  7. The Comparison Trap

    Have you ever been caught in the trap of comparing yourself to others? I would imagine every single one of us would say yes if we were honest with ourselves… The whole world seems to be set up in a way that almost forces us to do this. We’re trained through the media to think that we should look like supermodels, live in trendy homes and drive the newest car possible. They tell us that we'll be happy then. WRONG! The truth is, we are all individuals. Each of us has a unique life with unique relationships and circumstances. We have different sets of flaws and struggles to handle as well. The person who thinks they're better than someone else is just as misled as the person who thinks that they're worse. Each of us has infinite value and dignity, and no one can take it away. “There is a time in every man’s education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till. The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson Now, I certainly don't agree with all of the philosophies of Emerson and the Transcendentalist movement, but I think this statement gives us a big key in how we look at our lives. The point is that each of us is having a one-of-a-kind experience on this planet. You simply cannot compare one life to another--doing so would be grossly unfair. Our job is simply to do the best we can with the life we’ve been given. It is a priceless gift, complete with joy, pain, beauty, love and a countless myriad of complications. Every single one of us has gone through hard times… They’re just different. When we see one another, rather than look with the torment of comparison, we should look upon each other with grace and understanding. With that, some of the deepest wounds can be healed.
