The Problem with Comparison
Too often a time, our mind engages in little comparisons with others, but what happens when those matching up goes overboard?
Every day, we make comparisons between ourselves and others – it is only human nature to do so, since we have been driven to constantly aspire for the best in life. As parents, have you ever been in a situation when you are comparing with other parents who seem to be handling their job and parenting duties without even the slightest trickle of sweat? At the end of your reasoning and thought process, you will find yourself with more questions than answers, when the self-doubt settles in and you second guess whether you are a good enough parent. It is undoubtedly painful, but when we observe it at its core and start to peel away its sides, we will soon begin to realise how these negative comparisons only set us up for failure.
