If you’re peeking over the fence to see what’s on the other side, you’ve fallen prey to a clutter problem.
One of the symptoms of a cluttered mind is comparisons (see all 8 here). This one is a doozy. Pretty much a plague, comparing ourselves to someone else is like a disease, putting us at odds, making us feel less than, handicapped.
Comparisons amount to superlative judgments. It is deliberately taking two things and pitting them against each other for the sake of choosing a preference, or winner. It feels like judging two options to decide which is preferred.
It is searching for bigger and better, chasing faster and stronger.
- instagram fame
- facebook likes
- etc., etc.
We compare so much, where does that leave us? Feeling pretty shitty.
