It's often said that comparison is the thief of joy. In other words, social comparison is a big part of how we determine our own level of happiness.
If you find yourself in a daily competition with the achievements of others, it's time to direct your energy elsewhere. Start caring about the things and people in life that are meaningful and purposeful to you.
Life is filled with sadness, stress, pain, disappointments, insecurities, anxiety or depression. It doesn't matter who you are, life can be tough. However, this idea that life is far from perfect is far from the picture-perfect life that is often depicted on social media. While you may envy over someone's highlight real, you never know what the behind-the-scene moments look like.
I encourage you to have less comparison to others and more compassion toward yourself.
Although it is inspiring and motivating to see the success stories of others, do not let the triumphs of someone else trump your own personal accomplishments and achievements.
