Comparisons-helpful or damaging

From My Heart

When we compare, we want to be the best or have the best.
The paradox of “fit in and stand out”.
Comparison is the thief of happiness.
Acceptance of our self and others is what life is all about.

Be kind to yourself.
Accept yourself for who and what you are.
It will relieve that inner strife.
In God’s eyes, you are already a star.

Take time for creativity.
It’s important to your well being, don’t you see.
Is achieving and competing truly deserving
of all your attention and energy?

Have you made achieving too important
and creativity as no longer of value?
Re-think your priorities, be kind to yourself
You will be a much more contented You.

    You are so right about comparison being the thief of happiness! I especially like the last stanza. I often am too busy and feel all creativity is drained from me.

      competing is draining of your time and energy. Volunteers are usually ovewhelmed by the demands made of them…right?

        Volunteering can be overwhelming, it is important to set boundaries and not be tempted to over extend.
