Things we forget while comparing ourselves on social media

I think social media has been the best thing to happen to humankind. It has made people connect with each other and it has brought them closer together as a community. However, there are times when you may start comparing yourself to others on social media. This is a great way to learn how to be a better person but it can also be dangerous.

The first step of this comparison process is for you to realize that everyone is a human being, not perfect by any means. Everyone has made mistakes, makes mistakes, and has imperfections. The question then becomes, “Why are we comparing ourselves to others?” In this article, I will be sharing my opinion about this topic.

Comparing yourself to others is an important part of life. Growing up, everyone is taught to compete with others. However, the way in which you do it can be detrimental to your growth and development. Competition can drive to perfectionism which is something that can be harmful to your emotional development.

The second issue is that people often get caught up in this competition mentality and this leads to comparing ourselves to others. There is nothing wrong with comparing yourself to others because of course you will always want to be better than the person next to you. However, there are certain ways in which you can do this without being so harsh about it.

The third problem is that sometimes people forget that everyone’s journey is different. Just because someone is doing something better than yourself does not mean they are better than you. There are many important factors in one’s life, for example, one cannot compare one’s physical appearance to another. The same can also be applied to one’s abilities or personal qualities. Humans, all are unique individuals with different experiences and growth. Oftentimes when people compare themselves, they are only focusing on the small parts of their life that are similar to the person next to them and ignore the unique parts that make them who they are. For example, if one is being judged on the basis of what they look like or what they do for a living, they are being judged on the basis of their appearance, which is not fair.

Comparison is an essential part of human life. However, it is important to remember that comparison does not equal comparison. Comparison is an important tool in everyone’s lives and it can be used for good or bad. Remember, every person is unique and it’s important to recognize that.
