THE COMPARISON IS INEVITABLE WHEREVER WE WALK.
Happy Saturday family, I hope you have had a splendid week full of personal and work challenges, a few days before the end of a month that flies by and visualising my growth from my beginnings to date, I select the theme of comparison.
Family, comparison generates positive or negative results depending on the case and it is important to know how to express it either personally or in a group, because there are individuals who take them for better or worse, depending on the personality of each being.
No one is spared from comparisons, be it in the family, in love, in friendships, in education, at work, in the community, even in oneself one compares oneself with people who are better than oneself, be it in beauty, personality, way of dressing and shining with the environment where we surround ourselves.
In the family, parents know in detail the strengths and weaknesses of their children, what they raise of course, and when by fate they are upset they have to compare their children, taking into account that each offspring is a different book between tastes and colours.
In education, teachers compare the skills and abilities of each student every day, either behind closed doors with their colleagues to try to improve or advance, without neglecting the fact that scenarios can be visualised such as:
-There are teachers who show preference for the most outstanding and have to mention them all the time and as an example for others to follow.
-While there are other teachers who are neutral and do not show much interest but only in providing training for their students, thus keeping their distance.
As I narrate between tastes and colours. There are great characters in our journey on earth.
At work, there are often comparisons at all levels, that will not change, the comparison of the previous employee and the present one is something impressive that never ends.
In society, the development of our neighbours with others is relevant, there are the collaborators, the stingy ones, the bitter ones, the meddlers, the pessimists and an endless number of characteristics that make up a community.
There are eventualities that comparisons are made a populi that I do not agree with, because depending on the expression you have, it gives an impact that marks the moment of the person named, whether it can lower their self-esteem in the first place and without knowing what actions can take the person who feels affected, or as there are others who do not stop him, without leaving aside the relationship by similarity of personalities or achievements that tend to motivate because there is competition between the opponents and serves to become excellent.
With the question posed:
Do you ever compare yourself to anyone else?
I do it with my pillars, as they have been my motivation to achieve goals and goods, it has not been easy but I have always tried to improve and reach the level of my admired beautiful people.
I try to set objectives for a certain period of time and the goal is to execute them to the full.
The comparison from the approach that we see it inspires and promises, as there are cases as I express at the opening of the post that demotivates and denigrates according to the words used by the sender of the message, as we are human and there are cases that we express it with irony, with pride or with sadness, joy according to the criterion of each participant.
I used canva for the elaboration of the presentation and the free translator deelp since my language is Spanish.
Happy weekend, beautiful people.
I like your take on this, and I agree that comparison comes from all angles.
Comparing siblings can be more negative I believe.
I think that's a better approach.
I'm quite neutral on many things, and believe that people all have strengths and weaknesses, in different areas, so individuality is more of a priority for me:)
hello friend @millycf1976
Glad to hear you like it.
You are right it tends to be more negative, but depending on the angle we look at it, it can be taken with an essence of self-improvement when we like competition.
I have to agree with that too...
I think that's the 'operative thing'...
I've always marched to my own beat 🙃
I think that comparing ourselves with others is the worst thing we can do, each of us is a different and independent individual who will never do things the same as someone else, we can use other people as an example, but not measure ourselves against them.
Not to mention comparing others, as a parent or teacher that is a recipe for creating insecurities in others and no one deserves to have that done to them.
Good evening, friend
I respect your criteria, each being has a unique and indelible essence in each heart, but the reality in society in any of the areas that I break down in my post is inevitable, in the world there will always be criticisms of relationship, although we do not see it, there are people who do it, to obtain human talent according to the area to highlight, when we imitate a singer, artist, in childhood / adolescence and even in adult life, when we want to stand out in an event there is comparison because we want to have the hair of such a colour, clothes, shoes, valuables in short and then when we grow up we experience thousands of adventures, that in the long run we compare the past with the present in terms of the evolution of our dreams or goals.
In the World there must be thousands of criteria to call life. For some it is pleasant, for others it is not.
As for the insecurities you mention comes from our formation in the triad, family/school/community, facing the outside world without support and motivation generates insecurities and low self-esteem, we all need a push to continue on the earthly path.
