stop comparing yourself to others

Stop comparing yourself

One of the most crippling fears we
have is that of not
measuring up. Perhaps you feel you
won't impress others because they are
more confident, successful, intelligent
or attractive than you. Such thinking is
misguided. The secret of doing well
with others is accepting yourself as
you are.
This is story about a student, who kept
a diary filled with private memories.
Some were painful recollections from
childhood when he felt hurt, confused,
lonely and insecure. He had described
fragments of dreams and intensely
personal feelings of anger and hatred,
as well as things he enjoyed such as
Magic shops and coin dealers.
Then a terrible thing happened. After
dinner one night he realized that he
had left his diary in the cloakroom
outside the campus dinning hall.
Terrified that somebody might read it
and find out the truth about him, he
raced back, only to discover that it was
Weeks passed, and eventually he gave
up hope of ever finding it again. A
month later, he was hanging up his
jacket in the same place when he saw
his brown, tattered
Diary, just where he had left it.
Nervously he flicked
through the pages and found that a
stranger had written this entry: "God
bless you. I'm a lot like you, only I don't
keep a diary, I'm grateful to know
there are others like me. I hope things
turn out well for you."
Tears came to his eyes. It had never
dawned on him that anyone could
know his inner feelings and also feel
things just like the way he did.
So no matter what, whether you're
rich or poor, insecure or outgoing,
brilliant or average, attractive or plain-
some, there are people like you.
Discard your fears of not measuring
up, and accept yourself as you are.
