How Dangerous Is It to Compare Yourself to Others?

The web makes it so easy... All you need is a few minutes on Facebook or Twitter to see how much fun people are having, how they're spending all of the money they're making, and how they're getting married to fabulous people and having adorable kids.
The problem? If you start comparing yourself to everyone else, you'll never be happy! Instead, you'll be chock full of jealousy and envy - two of the ugliest emotions on the planet. You'll find it tough to be happy for people because you'll secretly be wondering "why not me?"
The green-eyed monster isn't the only danger you face by comparing yourself to others though. Here's why this is such a dangerous habit:
- It makes you focus on weakness.
If a friend loses 10 pounds, you might start thinking about all of the weight you need to lose. Seeing them slim down might make you feel like a failure, instead of feeling good about your great smile, killer sense of humor, or sharp wit. You'll focus on what's WRONG with you instead of what's RIGHT about you.
- It frustrates you.
Comparing yourself to others is a great way to feel completely frustrated - like you keep running into a brick wall while everyone else is off doing great things. Unfortunately, the more frustrated you get, the less likely you are to try and move forward. For example, you may figure that you're never going to wind up with as nice of a house as your cousin did, so you shouldn't even bother saving up for a down payment.
- It affects your social life.
If you're so caught up in other people's success, you may find it hard to be around them. Spending time with them may only remind you of all the things you don't have, so you choose to sit at home alone.
- It's a slippery slope towards depression.
Constantly comparing yourself to others will do a number on your self-esteem - which can easily lead to full-blown depression. (In fact, excessive comparing is a common reason for people seeking out therapists!) Making the problem worse, once you're depressed, everything turns into a giant cycle. Because you're depressed, you're more inclined to view EVERYONE as doing better than you are, so you wind up feeling even worse.
- It can make you anxious.
It's not uncommon for all of those comparisons to turn into negative self-talk - or, the little voice in your head that focuses on why you CAN'T do anything. Eventually, that voice will make you so anxious about failing that you'll be terrified to try anything!
Whether you suffer major emotional damage or just a few painful twinges, every second you spend comparing yourself to someone else is a second that you're not moving forward with your own goals. Instead of wishing that things could be different, get up and start working towards a better life!
