Finding Happiness Beyond Comparison


I dare say every person on earth could be found guilty of comparing themselves to another person out of envy, pride, or mere insecurity.

These could be comparisons of physical qualities, family life, level of education, state in life, career path, or even spiritual prowess, to name a few.

As the video “Are You Happy” illustrates, the age of social media has highlighted this game of juxtaposition. The commentary begins by acknowledging that “as humans, we need self respect and the respect of others,” but it goes to show that this cannot be the only goal in a person’s life.

If one only seeks to gain the attention and respect of those around them, it can be quite easy to get caught up in this “comparison game.”
