Comparison is Toxic

The worst thing that can hurt our self-esteem is a comparison to others; both in a positive and negative light. The reason why I say this, the moment we let someone enter the realm of our being, our individuality is at their mercy.

Just like there are different flowers in a garden, we all are different human beings. We bring our own color to the painting of this world. When you look at others to seek inspiration, not comparison.

A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms. – Zen Shin
