We grew up in a society where we aspire to be better than others. We often compare ourselves to people around us. We thought that this is going to motivate us to strive and work harder to achieve our goals and be a better person. Sometimes it does work but more often it take us apart and we end up depressed. Nowadays this is the norm. We turn on the TV and we see a perfect guy being compared to a below average guy. Media always make it look hilarious and positive but in reality we are unconsciously doing the same thing for ourselves.

We should not compare ourselves to others, rather strive to be better than we used to be.
