How many times a day do you compare yourself to others? We do it in our careers. We do it with our family or friends, and on occasion, we even compare ourselves to complete strangers. There are some positive aspects of comparing yourself others. It can motivate you to go back to school and earn a different degree. It can also propel you to apply for a better job or look for ways to become a better person.
Unfortunately, there are real dangers in comparing yourself to others in life. Comparing who you are with others can trigger negative emotions and actions. You probably have experienced some of the following of these feelings:
In ThetaHealing, we use a process called digging to release these feelings. We use this to find the cause and source of drama that pertain to persons, places, or situations that become a recurring pattern.
Social media platforms continue to propel this constant need in many of us to compare ourselves with others. While the intention of many of these tools is to allow us to keep up with what others are doing, it is generating some negative feelings or in some instances a sense of lacking.
You have to remember that while comparing yourself to others may be natural but allowing it to make you feel inferior will not yield a positive outcome. Instead, this act of comparison activities may even serve as an impediment that keeps you from actually living your life to its fullest.
You must learn to set yourself free from the bonds of comparison. We are all different, and thus, you have to make allowances for these differences.
ThetaHealing helps you to appreciate the things that work out well and learn from your mistakes.
